Field Trip – Exploring Treasures from the American Textile Museum

Presenter: Marcie Farwell

Facilitator: Nancy Smothergill

We will be making a field trip to the Kheel Center of the Catherwood Library at Cornell University in Ithaca. When the American Textile Museum in Lowell, MA closed, Cornell acquired many of the materials from the museum, including many written materials and some samples of woven goods. Marcie Farwell, curator of these archives, will lead us through a viewing of some of the fascinating items from the era of American textile prominence in times gone by.
