2009 Exhibit - Women's Work: Hopes and Dreams

A display in the Media Room of the Beaconsfield Library in June-July 2009 that encompasses a variety of the more long-lasting evidence of artistic and creative needlework produced by our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers. The aim throughout has been to display items that were made by women, and the occasional child, roughly between the second half of the nineteenth and the middle of the twentieth century, to beautify and furnish their homes and enrich or facilitate everyday life. These artefacts were conceived and produced for domestic use and enjoyment, as well as for display and they range from trousseau finery, through baby clothes (a few pieces actually worn by some of us who are still here today), bed linens, table linens, wall hangings, blankets, and more.
