Art in public places

Threading the Needle: Sewing in the Machine Age traces the development of the domestic sewing machine from the 1850s to the 1970s and celebrates over one hundred years of sewing. Pattern illustrations featured in the exhibition highlight ladies homemade fashions throughout the decades. A variety of notions from sewing boxes and sewing birds to needle cases, chatelaines, and pincushions, are also on display.
