I visited the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History this past weekend. The museum offers a good overall exhibit called Kentucky Journey, which takes the visitor from prehistoric times to the present. (Note to quilters: while the museum no longer has a large quilt exhibit, there are several quilts included in the exhibit — most are log cabin variations, and they are quite lovely.)

At present, the museum also has the Churchill Weavers Collection. This exhibit is in process. The company was recently sold to a company in Indiana, and the Berea location has closed. However, records, equipment, samples, and more were purchased and are being processed at the museum. The exhibit will be open until September 6, 2008.

The exhibit includes a quick view of archivists and curators processing the collection (very cool!) If you guys have a chance to see the exhibit, it’s great. It’s already got me daydreaming about weaving my own cloth …
