Elsewhere in the clip, Plumb showed off a butterfly piece she made with a needlepoint while waiting to film her take on the classic ABC sitcom. The actress revealed how her late co-stars, Florence Henderson (Carol Brady) and Ann B. Davis (Alice Nelson), introduced her and the rest of the cast to the party.

“In the 1970s, sewing became quite popular,” she explained. “You could do that all day and still be quiet while they were filming.”
