A New Reference Book Worth Perusing - 12/14/17
The Museum Library has recently acquired Susan W. Greene’s Wearable Prints, 1760-1860. The book, which contains around 1600 full-color images, describes not only the decorative aspect of fabric, but also the technological processes that resulted in the lovely fabrics we often see in antique quilts. The Library volunteers feel it will be of interest not only to quilters but also to historians, students, costumers, designers, curators, and collectors. Please come to the library to examine and enjoy this new acquisition.
