By Hand: Textiles from the Collection

Posted in: Art

The Castle Museum has created a By Hand Textile Exhibit from their collection that exemplifies true artistry. Tatting, crochet, quilting, and embroidery once adorned the simplest of every day items—a baby blanket, a handkerchief, or a monogrammed collar. Today these extra embellishments are often forsaken in place of mass produced goods, but the Castle Museum is exploring these lost arts of textiles in a new exhibit that features items from the collection not usually on display, By Hand: Textiles from the Collection. Highlights of the exhibit, which runs through July 31, include a crocheted wedding dress made by Marguerite Bainbridge and Gossard Artemis, a banner made by the Saginaw chapter of the Women’s National Farm and Garden Association for their centennial and several quilts. According to Chief Curator of the Castle Museum, Sandy Schwan, “This exhibit features art for every day objects. It was all very customized for the individual, which we just don’t see anymore.” Each piece tells a unique story about the maker and owner. Castle Museum of Saginaw County History, 500 Federal Ave.
