Friction, Fray, and Fabric: Textiles in the First World War

July 27 - July 29

During three days in July of this centennial year, gather in and around Harrisonburg with Virginia Quilt Museum Symposium participants to consider Friction, Fray, and Fabric: Textiles in the First World War.  Gain multiple perspectives of the (first) Great War through the eyes of a soldier, a president, and a pacifist as the friction and fray come to light.  Then fabric takes center stage with a look at several ways the nation responds to its war-affected situations and obligations – on the battlefield, on the home front, and in the aftermath.

Visit the website for full details, including schedule, speakers, and registration for one, two, or all three days.
