Cherished Family, Friends, and Colleagues,
I am excited to share my new venture with you. After working with a wonderful team, including professors, students, and consultants during a worldwide pandemic, we have finally completed our preparatory work for the traveling exhibition, Sidonia’s Thread: Crafting a Life from Holocaust to High Fashion.
Sponsored by Eastern Connecticut State University, the exhibition embodies the creative work described in my first two books, Sidonia’s Thread and Surviving Remnant. It includes thirty-five of my mother, Sidonia’s, high fashion designs and narratives, artifacts, and audio/video offering insight into my mother’s fascinating character. If you read the books, or remember Sidonia, you know her masterful touch with a needle and thread.
After a highly successful run in 2019, we will be offering the exhibition to interested venues for a three-month period on a traveling basis starting in the fall of 2021. Our aim is to make the exhibition very available and accessible to many visitors who are interested in this heartwarming story.
For a preview of the exhibition, please check out our impressive new website here. You will note that not only does the website offer a glimpse into the exhibition itself, but includes a complete Exhibition Catalogue and comprehensive Educators’ Guide. I know you will enjoy perusing the website.
Feel free to share the news with your friends and colleagues and let me know if you are familiar with a venue that might be interested in displaying the exhibition.
All the best,
