Pillow Talk - Historic Deerfield Symposium
If you are around in April, there is an interesting symposium that is part textiles - part context. Historic Deerfield is having a one-day symposium called Pillow Talk: Discovering Early New England Bed Chambers.
Their Flint Gallery of Textiles is also having a retrospective on their embroidery and textile holdings as well as there are lovely embroideries on view in the historic houses. This view is of a reproduction crewel set of bed hangings which was a project inspired by the Plimoth Jacket. The work on the hangings is absolutely fantastic, including the hand dying of the fibers!
