Description: Many of us have cherished textiles and costumes in our homes, from great-grandpa’s uniform to mother’s wedding gown. With the right care these items can remain valuable pieces of our history for years to come. Join Karen DePauw, research and collections associate at the Connecticut Historical Society, and learn about basic storage techniques ranging from museum-quality archival practices to simple and affordable solutions, tips on displaying your fabric treasures, and just some good old-fashioned do’s and don’ts. Together we can work to preserve your family’s history. We are in the process of rescheduling this talk for 2015.
