18TH ANNUAL TOYS, GAMES & TRAINS!
November 27-December 26, 2020
This annual exhibit fills the museum with a model train display assembled by local “S” Gaugers, as well as railroad memorabilia, and antique toys and games. Visitors of all ages will be enchanted as they explore the miniature snow-covered scenes that line the tracks. Parents and grandparents will enjoy reminiscing about the toys and games of their childhood. This year will be a little different from previous years with a smaller train track display to allow for social distancing within the museum.
*This event will adhere to social distancing protocols and guidelines in place at the time of the event. Masks and Temperature Checks will be required upon entry.
This year, we will not have a Sneak Preview night due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in place for the State of North Carolina.
STITCHED: THE FABRIC OF A COMMUNITY
February 16-May 8, 2021
What does the term stitched mean? It is the process of making, mending, or joining with stitches. In relation to textiles, people have been sewing in one form or another, for thousands of years, with evidence that suggests even up up to 20,000 years ago. Throughout history, it was a common task for people to make their own quilts, coverlets, clothes, and many other everyday objects by hand stitching. Over time, improved sewing techniques led to the invention of the sewing machine, and machine stitching. This exhibit showcases a selection of stitched examples in our collections that were produced by members of the community in Kings Mountain, NC.
