FOCUS ON THE MAKERS: Samplers, Needlework and Quilts

Over 50 hand-sewn objects displayed in this exhibition allow us to “read” material objects, bringing to light the social experience and cultural practices of our 19th c. Naugatuck Valley region. Learn the stories behind both decorative and utilitarian objects including quilts, samplers, homespun textiles, and personal items such as beaded purses.
