Winter Hands-on Workshop: Textile & Sampler Behind the Scenes Exploration

Saturday, February 16, 2019 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Museums of Early South Decorative Arts at the Horton Museum Center







Workshop Description:  Put on your white gloves for a special look at the work of our youngest artists.  In this special tour, you will explore MESDA’s amazing collection of Southern needlework including rarely seen samplers in our Textile Storage area. Stitched by girls as young as six years old, these accomplishments were wrought under the direction of a teacher or family member.  Wintry evenings by the fire were the perfect setting for these lessons in stitches and letters. Experience history hands-on!
