Winter Coverlet Collection at FACES
February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 25, 2023
The Fiber Arts Center invites you to their latest exhibit: The Winter Coverlet Collection of Catherine K. Spence. Coverlets are woven bedcovers used as the topmost covering on a bed. The weaver worked on a loom to construct the textile itself one row at a time, and the pattern was woven in as part of the process. You will see beautiful overshot coverlets that were fashioned on weaving looms and are geometric in design incorporating a wide variety of stripe, square, diamond, medallion and other patterns. You will also see double weave geometric, summer winter, and star work coverlets: and Jacquard coverlets. Dated coverlets in the collection range from the late 1830’s to 1850’s. Come visit this beautiful textile display and be mesmerized by their beauty!
The FACES Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 12pm – 4pm and is located at 7N 4th Street in Denton, MD.
