|Useful as they might be cloth handkerchiefs
have been used for flirtation, as fashion accessories, in greeting cards,
as souvenirs, as gifts, and in ads.
Early handkerchiefs were of linen, silk, or cotton and later with the advent of printing on fabric, they reflected the events and values of our culture.
Categories displayed in this exhibit are: whites, holidays, travel, designers, ruffles and rounds, and florals. Madeira, Swiss, and Chinese embroideries are defined and illustrated.

Knitting workshops are held in Monticello
