Stitchers invited!

Hey, fellow stitchers,

Would you like to create a wedding dress using stitched swatches of vintage textile items?

In 2019, the Huron County Museum & Historic Gaol is planning a clothing textile exhibit! Creating a wedding dress using stitched recreations based on museum textile collection items would be a great way to join in the celebration.

Whether you knit, crochet, sew, quilt or embroider, I welcome you to consider participating. The sample you would stitch would be your choice depending on what your interests and preferred needlework technique.

Please let me know if you would be interested in participating either by emailing me or signing up for the Stitch Revival Newsletter to keep up-to-date on the developments.

If there’s enough interest, I can arrange a session at the museum and we can all have a look through the textile items in the museum’s database.

Do you feel like stitching some history?
