A Stitch in Time book discussion series @ online via Zoom
Oct 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
A Stitch in Time book discussion series @ online via Zoom
Looking for an expansive topic to ponder during the upcoming months?  A Stitch in Time is the theme for the Fall ‘22/Winter’23 Book Discussion Group.  Four books – two fiction and two non-fiction – explore the wide-ranging and surprisingly significant role of textile fabrication and assembly throughout the lives of women (and men) from past to present day.

The first book, The Other Side of Stone, by Linda Cracknell, is a collection of linked short fiction stories.  Spanning three centuries, it focuses on the people connected to a Perthshire, Scotland woolen mill that dominates their lives, their struggle for women’s rights, and the impact of industrialization on rural Scotland.
The first discussion will be held via Zoom, Thursday, October 20, from noon to 1 p.m.   To register and obtain a book from the library, please email librarian@thetfordlibrary.org or call 802-785-4361.

A Stitch in Time:  The role and significance of textiles/sewing/needlework in women’s lives during different time periods.
 
The Other Side of Stone – Linda Cracknell – A collection of linked short stories that spans three centuries, this book focuses on the people connected to a Perthshire, Scotland woolen mill, their struggle for women’s rights and the impact of industrialization on rural Scotland.
 
All that She Carried – Tiya Alicia Miles – Miles, a Harvard history professor, uses an embroidered message on an old grain sack to unravel the history of three Africa American women whose lives spanned the 19th and 20th centuries, slavery and freedom, and North and South.
The Sewing Machine – Natalie Fergie –  A sewing machine, made at the Singer Factory in Clydebank, Scotland in 1911, links together four generations of family through 2016, while showing how tangible and intangible aspects of our lives are inevitably passed down.
The Dressmakers of Auschwitz – Lucy Adlington – non-fiction – Using their sewing skills, 25 young women in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp organized a fashion workshop to create high fashion designs for elite Nazi women and to save themselves from the gas chambers.
