New Exhibit at AASR's National Heritage Museum

From the Metro West Daily News yesterday:

What can we learn about Freemasonry from quilts, needlework and rugs made by women with relatives in the secretive order?
Aimee Newall, curator of collections at the National Heritage Museum, will discuss the new exhibit she organized, "Threads of Brotherhood: Masonic Quilts and Textiles,'' Saturday, July 28 at, at the Lexington museum.
Starting at 2 p.m., this free talk will explore how women demonstrated their familiarity with Masonic values through their needles while leaving behind striking examples of their work.
Organized by Newall, the new show features 25 quilts, coverlets, needlework pictures and hooked rugs from the museum's collection which is likely the largest of its kind in the country.
She said the exhibit will appeal to non-Masons and Masons because "it tells a compelling story of connected lives and shared values."
Known also as the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library, it is located at 33 Marrett Road, Lexington. For information call 781-861-6559 or visit www.nationalheritagemuseum.org.
