Tacoma Historical Society opens "A Stitch in Time" exhibit

Tacoma Historical Society announced the opening of “A Stitch in Time,” a new exhibit showing the work of a few Tacoma women who made, collected and valued fine textiles. This exhibit will be featured at the Exhibit Center and Gift Shop through Thurs., June 25.

Curated by Tacoma Historical Society Director Mary Bowlby, this exhibit presents a wide variety of both personal and household textiles from the early- and mid-20th century. Fabrics range from cotton to silk, with items that were made in Tacoma parlors and some that were sent as gifts from Asia.

Members of Tacoma Weavers Guild will hold weaving demonstrations during
Third Thursday ArtWalk — April 16, May 21, and June 18; 5-8 pm.

Tacoma Historical Society’s Exhibit Center and Gift Shop, located at 747 Broadway in downtown Tacoma, is open Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m.

In addition to operating the Exhibit Center, the Society presents monthly public programs, the annual Historic Homes of Tacoma Tour the first weekend in May and the Annual “Destiny” Dinner and Auction. For additional information call (253) 472-3738 or visit http://www.tacomahistory.org .
