Suffolk County Historical Society will host “Preserving the Fabrics of Your Life” Saturday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in celebration of National Quilting Day. The event is in conjunction with Hallockville Museum Farm.
The demonstration and presentation will be led by Susan Jerome, collections manager of the University of Rhode Island Historic Textile and Costume collection. She will discuss how to evaluate old fabrics and appropriate ways to preserve these often fragile textiles. A bed-turning demonstration will follow.
The cost is $25; $20 for Hallockville or SCHS members.
