A Stich In Time

Explore the Science and History of Textiles!

Discover the rich textile history of Rutherford County, NC! Use high-powered microscopes to examine different fabrics. Examine other specimens under the microscopes, such as human hair, insect wings, a comic strip, and much more. Use the looms to create trendy textile patterns! Funding for this exhibit was made possible by a generous donation by Flora Major of the Kutya Major Foundation, in honor of the late Andrew Major, former president of Mastercraft Corp. and a resident of Rutherfordton for 30 years.
