Staff member Linda R. shared several things she inherited from her Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. The antique spool chest holds original spools of thread that came in the box and have been passed down in Linda’s family.
Linda’s Grandmother and Great-Grandmother worked together on this beautiful antique hooked rug. When Linda brought it home with her, there were several holes in it that Linda wanted to get repaired. She took it to an Oriental rug store for suggestions on how to fix it and the little Chinese lady who was helping her took the wool scarf she was wearing and cut it into strips to make the repairs for Linda! The finished rug is now framed and hanging and looks good as new!
