Program: Custom Framing to Protect and Display Heirloom Knits
Joy Owens will present a program on how to best protect and display memorabilia knit items by conservation custom framing. On display will be a christening gown and bonnet, a baby sweater hand knitted by a great-grandmother, and a crochet doily that dates back several generations. Members of the guild are encouraged to bring items that they might have questions about the proper way to frame.
