Exhibition Opening Reception - Unraveling the Threads of History

Sunday, June 4
2:00 p.m.
Centre Furnace Mansion

 

Join CCHS as we celebrate our 2017 exhibit - Unraveling the Threads of History.

 

As part of the Centre County Historical Society’s new exhibition, Unraveling the Threads of History, Sarah Tucker’s story and that of her students will be told.  Needlework sampler instruction was critical in a young girl’s education in early America. 

We are very fortunate to have access to several samplers that can be attributed to the teaching of Miss Tucker, a teacher in Bellefonte.  In addition to these Bellefonte samplers, the exhibition will also present other Central Pennsylvania sampler examples along with information on how local women created linen from the flax grown in our fields, different sampler motifs and verses used, and information on preserving family samplers.

 

Over 20 Central Pennsylvania samplers are on display. 

 

The exhibition will be open through September 24, 2017 during regular tour hours Sun|Wed|Fri 1-4pm.
