Connected Threads: 40 Years of the Embroiderers’ Guild

September 21– November 4, 2017

The Museum’s connection with the local community continues with an exhibition featuring embroidery work by members of the Huntingdon Chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America. Presented in honor of the chapter’s 40th anniversary, the exhibit features contemporary works executed in a variety of techniques, shown alongside antique works, some of which were made by relatives of the members. These pieces demonstrate continuity and evolution in an art form that crosses time and culture.
