Mia Sherman is helping the Broomfield Depot Museum put together a festival and exhibit of arts and crafts traditionally done by women, in honor of 2020 being the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment. Right now we’re just collecting ideas, and would like suggestions of arts and crafts beyond commonly known ones like knitting, weaving, and embroidery, but may contact makers later on to discuss demonstrations or simply being included in the exhibit. (Note: We know that men do these things too, but they’re still thought of as being “women’s work.” :) ) If you have any suggestions for arts and crafts to include, or want to volunteer to participate, please contact Mia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have an item you would like posted in the announcements section, please email email@example.com. Ads for items for sale are not being accepted at this time.
