Because of the snow and cold temperatures, the Arden Craft Shop Museum will be closed today, January 22. We will be open as usual on Sunday, January 26 from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. Stay warm, everyone!
The ACSM has been working to clean and stabilize the papers for a while, but last Sunday’s crew really helped push the project forward. A team of six, including June Kleban, Sadie Somerville, Peg Shaw, Barbara Macklem, Robin Valencia, and Kelsey Ransick put in over 20 woman-hours of work! They were able to clean and rehouse about half of the papers–a momentous step forward.
Another crew will be coming in this Sunday to care for the rest of the papers. Once the papers are rehoused, they can be processed and placed in the museum office, freeing up processing space for other donations.
Can you tell the before and after sides of this sketch?
thank you, volunteers! your work really makes a difference!
Hello, loyal followers of the Arden Craft Shop Museum, strangers, and all others who have found their way to our new website! For a number of reasons (including not spamming you with third-party ads) we decided to switch our website to a new host. Feel free to look around and explore the new site. We've updated a few things, including a FAQ section for donating to the ACSM, this new blog, and, of course, a link to our old blog so you can go back and re-read your favorite articles or check out our past Objects of the Month (the link is permanently available on the upper right-hand corner of this blog).
