Threads Happiness

There are a couple of interesting things in this month’s issue of Threads: the Indianapolis Museum of Art has an exhibit on wedding costume from the 19th & 20th centuries (see the exhibit website for details and some nice images), an article on choosing an iron that includes a nice timeline of the history of irons, a great suggestion about storing fabric (using plastic crates from office supply stores, which avoids the problem of trapping gases [plastic tubs] or transferring acids [cardboard boxes]), and a feature on the back cover on a new line of repro fabrics based on textiles owned by Harriet Beecher Stowe (including a beautiful 1880s painted gown that’s nicely pictured).
