Friction, Fray and Fabric: Textiles in the First World War
301 S Main St
Harrisonburg, VA 22801
During three days in July of this centennial year, gather in and around Harrisonburg with Virginia Quilt Museum Symposium participants to consider Friction, Fray, and Fabric: Textiles in the First World War. Gain multiple perspectives of the (first) Great War through the eyes of a soldier, a president, and a pacifist as the friction and fray come to light. Then fabric takes center stage with a look at ways a nation responds to its war-affected situation and obligations.
