The “Sidonia’s Thread: Crafting a Life from Holocaust to High Fashion” exhibit has had a terrific start at the Windham Textile and History Museum in Willimantic, CT. It will be on display until April 28, 2019.
Thanks to our sponsors and students at Eastern CT State University for all of their support, especially Assistant Professor of Costume Design, Anya Sokolovskaya, who has given so much of her time and effort to the project.
Lending publicity to the exhibit, reporters at several news outlets have helped us spread the word about this important display of one women’s strength, resilience, and genius at creative design.

It was a great afternoon at Temple B’nai Israel in Willimantic. The audience was so supportive and kept me at ease. I was introduced by an old (not that old) friend I knew from my childhood in Springfield, MA, Susan Meisler. My mother and I would stroll down Main Street when I was a kid and stop in at Susan’s parents’ children’s clothing store, appropriately called “Susan’s.” Thanks to Susan, Carol Kraus, Rav Jeremy and everyone at the Temple for the great planning and coordination of the event. It was a fine preview event for the upcoming museum exhibit, “Sidonia’s Thread: Crafting a Life from Holocaust to High Fashion” opening February 8, 2019 at the Windham Textile and History Museum.
