As we mentioned in a recent post, the Charlemont Historical Society is focusing on the theme of textiles this year. The activities we are pursuing related to this theme are:
- proper care for and display of the textiles in the Society’s collection;
- hosting a public talk on a textile-related theme;
- digitizing our textile collection, so that it is available online for anyone, anywhere;
- organizing a community quilting bee to create a new quilt for the Historical Society’s collection.
We are raising funds for these efforts through Valley Gives, a one-day festival of philanthropy that benefits nonprofits in the Pioneer Valley region of western Massachusetts. Valley Gives is coming up on Tuesday, May 3 — and we would appreciate your support!
