Several of these Costumes were hand-sewn by Patsy's mother, Mrs. Hilda Hensley.

The Costumes are being offered for sale by the Hensley family, with all proceeds going toward the settlement of Mrs. Hensley's estate.  Mrs. Hensley had kept the Costumes for many years, as it was her dream to establish a Museum in her daughter's memory.

Patsy Cline fans now have the opportunity to help see that Mrs. Hensley's dream becomes a reality.


Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc., an organization based in Winchester, Virginia, is
working toward the establishment of a Museum in Patsy's childhood home.
An Acquistions Fund has been established to procure items for the
Museum.

With the help of some dedicated fans, Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc.
has registered to bid in the Patsy Cline/Hilda Hensley auction in
the hope of acquiring at least one item for the Museum. Donations
for the Acquisitions Fund are now being accepted.
