UPCOMING EXHIBIT

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.

*This event will adhere to social distancing protocols and guidelines in place at the time of the event. Masks will be required upon entry.
