The 3rd talk of the year for the Quilt Study Group of NSW will be given by Megan Martin, Head of Collections and Access, at the Sydney Living Museums on Macquarie Street, Sydney CBD.
Starting at 10am on Thursday the 21st of July Megan will talk to us about the identification of the textiles they found between 1979 and 1981 in the under floor deposits at the Hyde Park Barracks. The talk, “What colour was that girl’s dress? The archaeological evidence of fabrics from Hyde Park Barracks”, will be followed by a tour of their new exhibit ‘Female Immigration Depot 1848-1886’ at the Barracks.
Numbers for the tour are strictly limited to 15 Guild members, but if there is more demand, we can request another tour date. Please contact the Quilters' Guild of NSW Office to secure your place for the talk and tour. Please note: access to two of the floors at the Barracks building is by staircase only.
