The Museum is proud to offer an exhibit for 2013 and 2014, which will show textiles from various age
groups as donated by local families. These will include not only clothing but samplers and household
handmade items such as dresser scarves, doilies, home spuns, quilts, and others.
To accompany the textiles there will be a display of military items to go with the uniform that will be on display, a series of men's and ladies' personal grooming items, hats, and other such objects. Objects with violets and children's toys will also be used to help tell the story of the clothing.
A display of period Godey prints will also be shown as will a large variety of Rhinebeck photographs taken at various times showing locals in their finery and their daily wears. In 2014, the exhibit will be changed so that different textiles may be seen.
The exhibit will begin on Saturday, May 18, 2013, with an open house from 1-4 PM.
