Preserving Family Collections Garments and Shoes

Members Only

Join OSV Curator of Textiles and Collections Manager Rebecca Beall as she discusses techniques for preserving historic garments and shoes. We are all curators of our own collections, but may be unsure how to best care for our family textiles. Learn how we preserve our collection of gowns, jackets and other garments and help us create supports for our shoe collection. Whether your personal collection includes wedding dresses or baby clothes, these techniques can be easily used to preserve your own family collections. Guests will park in the Administrative Lot. The entrance to the Administrative Lot is located right before the main Visitor Center lot entrance.
