In Praise of the Needlewoman

Event Type: Library Event
Date: 10/1/2018
Start Time: All Day
Description:
 Hidden beauty in everyday necessities is the inspiration behind the exhibit, 'In Praise of the Needlewoman,' Sep 5-Oct 2.

Vintage everyday items – embroidery, tatting, crochet and lace – from the collection of Barbara Lukas, of Fond du Lac, will comprise the bulk of the exhibit. The title of the exhibit was inspired by the book, “In Praise of the Needlewoman: Embroiderers, Knitters, Lacemakers and Weavers in Art,” by Gail Carolyn Sirna. Lukas said the book gave her the idea of exhibiting her collection, which will be complemented by works by fiber artists and examples of the tools used by needlewomen of old.
