History of weaving, sewing, knitting, crocheting & textile crafts
The Tri-State Museum and Visitor Center in Belle Fourche has a new temporary exhibit entitled “Fabric of our Lives: The History of Sewing and Textiles.” Hear from Chip Kimball who donated a loom from the 1930’s. Ms. Kimball gave a presentation on February 6, 2021 to open the exhibit.
The exhibit explores the history of weaving, sewing, knitting, crocheting and other textile crafts. It includes storyboards, photos, artifacts, a touchscreen quiz and a children’s table with coordinated activities, books and a free take-home packet.
A special feature of the exhibit has storyboards on some 20 different fabrics, with small fabric swatches beside them, so that you may feel the fabric being described.
The exhibit continues through May 3, 2021. The Tri-State Museum and Visitor Center is located at 415 Fifth Avenue in Belle Fourche, South Dakota. For more information see its Facebook page, its website at www.thetristatemuseum.com or call 605-723-1200.
