Coffee Hour with CHS: From Hoopskirts to Flappers

July 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

A woman born in 1850 who lived for 80 years would have seen fashion change dramatically in her lifetime. This program will walk you through our Costume and Textile collection to see how women’s clothing transitioned from the iron reign of the hoopskirt to the relative freedom of the flapper dress.

This program is free and spaces are limited. To secure a spot, click here to register with Yapsody: https://bit.ly/2Ax81bY. At noon on the day of the program, you’ll get a reminder email from CHS with the link to the Zoom meeting. Please do not share that link with anyone! It’s unique to you.

Our virtual coffee hours have been really popular! Program topics that fill up will be repeated later in the spring or summer.

If you would like to make a donation to help the CHS keep history alive through this difficult time, please click here: https://bit.ly/3anmHax. Or, to learn about the benefits of museum membership, click here! http://bit.ly/2pJuInX
