Program Partner Event: Preservation Workshop for Girl Scout Items and Textiles
Do you have family heirlooms that you are concerned about preserving? Were you or was someone in your family a Girl Scout? Come to the Anthracite Heritage Museum to learn about best practices from Mary Winslow and Brenda Long, members of the Girl Scouts Heart of PA Archives Committee. It will be a great afternoon of learning and preserving!
The workshop will be geared toward Girl Scout memorabilia, but the information will be applicable to any textile preservation endeavor. If you were a former Girl Scout or have family members who were and wish to preserve a uniform, badge sash, or any other item, Mary and Brenda can help you not only preserve the items, but also help you date and contextualize them according to official Girl Scout history.
This event is organized by the Anthracite Heritage Museum. Please contact the museum for additional details.
