Event Series: Stitches Through Time Exhibit
Stitches Through Time Exhibit
June 7 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Stitches Through Time exhibit explores one story of women’s work, interpreting the history of textile production up to the 1950s. It features a beautiful selection of hand-sewn quilts and clothes from the 1800s; equipment, advertisements, photos, and ephemera from the factory era; and selections of mid-20th century clothing by Claire McCardell that reflect the department store culture that emerged after World War II. 10 wedding dresses spanning 100 years showcase the themes in our story.
