Event Description

Each year, Old Sturbridge Village explores a different aspect of 19th-century textiles. Past topics have included quilting, needlework, and women's domestic textile production. This year, the weekend will focus on 19th-century clothing.

  • Tour the "Trimmed to Taste" exhibit in the Firearms & Textiles building and explore the different accessories worn in the early 1800s.
  • Learn how the Village staff made a painting come alive by recreating the clothing worn in one of the Village's most iconic portraits. (Pictured above)
  • Attend bonnet-making and dress-making demonstrations.
  • See how cloth for clothing was woven and how damaged clothing was mended and repaired.
  • Learn how communities cared for those in need with Charitable Society Treasuries.
  • Find out more about the expanding availability of ready-made clothing in early New England villages.
  • Take part in hands-on activities including making paper dolls, coloring and cutting our paper toy soldiers. Make a sewing needle case in the Craft Center (fee applies.)
