    • This exhibit will highlight textiles and clothing from Mennonite communities of eastern Pennsylvania, including both decorative and utilitarian objects. Colorful quilts from neighboring Pennsylvania Dutch communities will be among the items featured from the Goschenhoppen and Schwenkfelder collections. Clothing "plain" and "fancy," both every-day and "Sunday best," from area Mennonite families will be another feature of the exhibit. A mid-19th century parlor and a mid-to-late 19th century bedroom setting will present some of the objects in context.
