Last Thursday night, I had the pleasure of attending the Curator's Choice Lecture at Dumbarton House in Georgetown. The presenter was Linda Eaton, curator of textiles for Winterthur Museum and Gardens, and she spoke about the textile trade and the federal period. It was an engaging and fascinating lecture and I will write all about it in conjunction with a post on another Dumbarton House event that I am planning to attend tonight, the "Dumbarton at Dusk" Curator's Tour led by Scott Scholz and Mary Doering. I will be at the 6 o'clock- there's one at 7 as well.
Look for a new post on both of these events in the next day or so!
