Doors open at 10:15. For our May program Bonnie Britzman of Conservators of Fine Fabrics in Brea will give a short lecture on taking care of special clothing and textile items that we all have lurking somewhere in the back of our closets and drawers. A big part of the program will consist of what YOU bring to the meeting and any questions you might have about conservation and/or repair so please give that some thought. The more items, the more interesting the program...plus you get to share your stuff with others!
(from Pam F.) I'm bringing an old sampler from 1851 that I have pinned in a shadow box, my old linen sheet, and a ripped up but cool old mola that I have no idea what to do with. None of these items are particularly valuable...but hey, I like them! And I'll bet you all have some very cool things as well...so let's see you and them in May!
