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.

Reproduction Bed Hangings at Historic Deerfield
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!
