In partnership with the American Textile History Museum's current exhibition, "Behind the Veil: Brides and their Dresses," Kate Tarleton, textile conservator and co-owner of ConText, Inc., presents a preservation workshop on storing and caring for wedding dresses, both old and new. "Behind the Veil: Brides and their Dresses" takes an intimate look at generations of wedding dresses and the women who wore them. This exhibition explores how brides over the last 130 years have chosen their wedding dresses, and how their decisions are shaped by fashion, family, and finances. "Behind the Veil" is on view through August 11, 2013.
