The second Saturday in November marked the occasion of the Archives first adult workshop. The Veteran’s Day Textile Workshop offered registrants the opportunity to bring in a treasured piece of family history with them. Dr. Marian Ann Montgomery, Curator of Clothing and Textiles at the Museum of Texas Tech University in Lubbock led the workshop, giving a presentation on basic fabric care to begin. The second half of the workshop Dr. Montgomery worked with the textile items the workshop participants had brought, showing them how to carefully store and protect their pieces using archival boxes and tissue provided.
