New 'Inside Museums' Story on Culture Victoria
We are thrilled to announce the publication of our third blog post on Culture Victoria: 'Threads: Quilts and Waggas in Victorian Collections' by Claire Capel-Stanley. The post is about the life stories and local history contained in the making of quilts and waggas. Claire investigates these great acts of sewing in the collections of the Queenscliffe Historical Museum and the National Wool Museum.
This post is part of the 'Inside Museum Collections' series commissioned by Culture Victoria and based on objects, stories, and places which have been uncovered in INSITE or during staff visits to museums and galleries around Victoria. We selected five subjects and have worked with Writers Victoria to find authors for each of the stories.
