Saturday October 3, 2020 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Note: Guild meetings through December 2020 will be virtual; zoom coordinates will be sent out the week before the event.

We will be experiencing a virtual 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.

Presenter: Marcie Farwell

Facilitator: Nancy Smothergill
