    Overview

    At the Museum of Frederick County History you will find the Stitches Through Time - Women's Work from Farm to Fashion exhibit.

    The Stitches exhibit explores one story of women's work, interpreting the history of textile production up to the 1950s. It features a beautiful selection of hand-sewn quilts and clothes from the 1800s; equipment, advertisements, photos and ephemera from the factory era; as well as selections of mid-20th century clothing by Claire McCardell that reflect the department store culture that emerged after World War II.

    Ten wedding dresses spanning 200 years showcase the themes of our story.
