Antique Tools:
Dawn Cook Ronningen, author of Antique American Needlework Tools, will be assessing your antique and vintage sewing tools and signing her new book, Sewing Rolls, Needle Rolls and Huswifs!

Dawn is a historian, needle worker, quilter and long-time collector of sewing and embroidery tools. She is also a collector of antique textiles!

Dawn uses her needlework tool collection in her own stitching projects, focusing on historic techniques and designs. She lectures on her collections in the US and abroad, meeting and sharing information with embroiderers, quilters, sewers, and antiques enthusiasts.


Kimberly Davis, Board Member of The Lace Museum, and her team will help you date and identify your lace pieces. This knowledgable group will be able to identify technique, care and preservation.

The Lace Museum was founded in 1976 in the San Francisco Bay Area in California by a small group of women in order to preserve the art of lace making. By meeting regularly, the founding members were able to teach each other lace making techniques, teach other groups and individuals how to make lace, and to educate the community about the fine art of lace making through exhibits, shows and community events.

Located in the Silicon Valley area of California, The Lace Museum is dedicated to preserving lace and the art of lace making, exhibiting lace and its historical use, and offering instruction in all facets of lace making.


Diane Nerheim, our neighbor at Needlepoint, Inc will share her tremendous knowledge of painted canvas, materials and history. 

Needlepoint, Inc has been San Francisco’s destination for needlepoint for over 27 years. Diane's shop sells exclusive hand painted canvases, their own line of silk threads, as well as designs and threads from your favorite brands.
