Historic Deerfield’s Textile Gallery provides a visual feast for visitors! Come see rare and unusual items from Historic Deerfield’s collection that tell fascinating stories of early schoolgirl needlework, men’s and women’s fashionable clothing, including a 1760s robe à l’anglaise and a ca.1810 man’s dressing gown, and stylish wigs of the 18th century.

Also on view will be decorative textiles and a complete set of embroidered bed hangings made by the Deerfield Society of Blue and White Needlework, a craft enterprise which achieved national and international acclaim in the early 20th century.
