About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, August 17, 2023.

Americans invested a tremendous amount of labor into making and maintaining their wardrobes during the 19th century. This presentation will explore the life cycle of clothing during the 1800s: how it was created, mended, remade, washed, and ultimately recycled. This presentation will highlight examples of garments and artifacts from the Illinois State Museum’s collection.

Presented in partnership with the Illinois Humanities “Road Scholar” Speakers Bureau. (AJ)
