Stitches Through Time – Women’s Work From Farm to Fashion
July 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 22, 2023
At the Museum of Frederick County History you will find the Stitches Through Time – Women’s Work from Farm to Fashion exhibit.
The Stitches 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; as well as selections of mid-20th century clothing by Claire McCardell that reflect the department store culture that emerged after World War II.
Ten wedding dresses spanning 200 years showcase the themes of our story.
