We asked our summer interns, Aja and Abbigail, working on the Churchill Weavers collection about their favorite pieces in the fabric archive. This is what they said.
Aja, cataloging intern:
“Some of my favorite pieces from Churchill Weavers are the color blankets. These are essentially samples of weaving in a variety of colors so the weavers could experiment with different combinations. I love seeing the wide spectrum of colors they could produce!”
Abbigail, photography intern:
“My favorite article this summer was a baby blanket with a poodle appliqué. I love the 1950s and this blanket is evocative of the poodle skirts that teenage girls enjoyed wearing!”
