Stitching past to present: Sewing In Kingston. A new exhibition and program series.

Sewing in Kingston is a major exhibit accompanied by a range of programs showcasing more than a century of Kingston’s rich history of garment manufacturing and the immigrant communities, entrepreneurs, and women whose work made it possible. Join us to learn about the ups and downs of Kingston’s garment industry, the persistence of small businesses, the imagination of artists, and the power of family. The exhibit will highlight the role of immigrants and women and connect local experiences to broader historical, cultural, and economic stories. With one of the most significant local history exhibits ever mounted in the region, Kingston’s newly renovated Reher Center Gallery reopens to the public.

Sewing in Kingston is dedicated to the memory of Halina Szczawinsky.

Sewing in Kingston is made possible thanks to significant support from the Coby Foundation. Associated public programs are made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Humanities New York.
