Sewn objects surround us. They clothe us from birth, cover our bodies day and night, furnish our living spaces, line our coffins. For over 40,000 years humans have sewn by hand (and for a mere 180, by machine as well). Until recently, every woman and many men knew how to sew for utilitarian and often decorative purposes. Knowing a variety of techniques and stitches, and which to use for a given task, was key knowledge imparted in childhood and employed throughout a lifetime.

Curator Alden O’Brien will formally present on this groundbreaking exhibit, combining sewn items from all textile sections of the DAR Museum’s collections: clothing, household textiles, quilts, and needlework.

Speaker: Alden O’Brien, Curator of Costumes and Textiles at the DAR Museum
