Stitches Through Time Reminiscing Kit
Source: Museum Victoria
Clothing is familiar to all of us. Memories of boiling the copper on wash day, wearing starched collars and hand-me-downs will stimulate plenty of discussion.
‘Stitches Through Time’ is based around the topics of clothing, fashion and its impact on our lives. It looks at the past through a recording of the fashions, the advertising and the factors affecting one’s dress.
Some people will be familiar with most or all of the items in this kit. They may remember specifics such as clothing worn on special occasions, the washing methods used or the never-ending sewing and darning. For younger people, they may recognise some of the clothing from photographs in their grandparents’ homes.
$35 (GST inclusive) to hire for two weeks.
Postage: we pay for posting the kit to you, you pay for return postage.
By car: please phone to arrange.
We are currently closed for bookings and will re-open in late 2014.
