“Stitches in Time – A Woman’s Handiwork,” is a program that relates a legacy of handiwork of past seamstresses. Caroline will present a selection of 19th century needlework tools and fine examples of linens, lace, and clothing from her antique collection that show needlework styles and techniques. She will also talk about the importance of the needle arts in women’s lives.
Caroline’s education and background make her a natural fit to present this program. She has an AA from Marymount University, plus both a BA in Design and an MFA in Fine Arts from American University. She taught clothing construction and design in the Fashion Merchandising program at Marymount University for five years.
You will want to get your reservation in soon and join us on March 21st!
