Programs and Events

MOVING WALL MUSEUM

February Moving Wall is showcasing Kathy VanWeelden's artistic handcrafted pillows. 
     "I make them from vintage sweaters that I like. I am partial to all wool and ski or Scandinavian designs. Some of them are from ski sweaters that my mother had from the 50s. I also shop for cute children's sweaters. Several people have brought me their loved but no-longer-worn sweaters, and I fashioned custom pillows for them." This display of Kathy's work will start on February 1.
