“Cloth is my Field, Needle is my Plow: Pennsylvania German Women's Work” by Lisa Minardi 

Join us for a look at a broad range of Pennsylvania German textiles—including quilts, samplers, hand towels, bed linens, clothing, pincushions, and more. This talk will be presented by Lisa Minardi, Executive Director of The Speaker's House and the new Center for Pennsylvania German Studies in Trappe, Pa. 

Minardi's presentation will be followed by a behind-the-scenes look at show towels and samplers from the Phillips Museum of Art's collection. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to see textiles that are rarely on display and pulled from storage just for this special program!
