River Arts and the Noyes House Museum and Historical Society have partnered together to present a new exhibit "A Stitch in Time: 18th & 19th Century Textiles", on display in the Common Space Gallery at River Arts in Morrisville August 24-October 20.

A Stitch in Time includes quilts, samplers and embroidery work created by women in the 18th and 19th century. These objects and accessories served as a rite of passage and provide insight into a woman's role within the household during this period. Today, historians and folklorists are examining this material culture in order to decipher and contextualize the untold stories of women's lives in the past. Visitors are invited to imagine what these women and girls were sharing? Are there messages and lessons we can learn from their work?

The Morristown Historical Society's Noyes House Museum, located in the historic village of Morrisville, presents exhibits focusing on nineteenth-century life in Morristown, Vermont. The museum's collection includes furniture, textiles, military objects, clothing, photographs, pottery, folk and fine art, and many of the tools and objects of daily life.

The Gallery at River Arts is located on 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Monday - Thursday 9-4pm and Friday 9-2pm. For off hours please call ahead. Admission is free and galleries are handicap accessible. River Arts is supported in part by the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
