Exhibits For You

There are wonderful opportunities this summer to see great exhibits with antique textiles and related needlework tools!
 
I spoke with several others at the Lecture series held in conjunction with the Penn Dry Goods Market at The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center.  (HERE)
The market and Lecture series is over - HOWEVER, lucky you - the exhibit is up through September!

The exhibit includes many items shown in my book from the museum and private collection - plus MORE!

On June 14, the signature quilts from their collection go up through November.




"Sewing tools range from the eminently practical to the exquisite and whimsical. This exhibit showcases examples from the Heritage Center and private collections.  It includes pincushions and pin balls from the 18th to 20th centuries; workboxes; sewing rolls and other related tools and equipment for home and commercial use."







While in the area, try to also catch the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society Exhibit:  Decorated and Plain: An Amish and Mennonite Sampler (HERE)



Included in this exhibit are pin cushions, sewing boxes and other related sewing treasures.

"Smalls" as some like to refer to them.

Opening in June, Bryan Museum - Galveston Texas:

It is always special when an ART Museum recognizes quilts as art. 
To have them include sewing tools is exciting!
Included in the exhibit are pin cushions, sewing rolls, clamps, needle books, 
sewing machines, hoops and more!

Are you seeing any exhibits this summer?
I'd love to hear about them.  

I hope to meet some of you June 11 at the South Minneapolis Quilters Guild where I will be giving a trunk show and presentation.
I will also be at the Minnesota Quilters Show (Rochester MN) 
signing books in the MQP booth
Friday, June 14 for the day.

Hope to see you soon!
Happy Stitching,
Dawn
