The SIlk Industry in Maine...

   During the years 1825-1845 a mania for all things silk enthralled the nation.  It found a local connection in Hiram, Maine which sought to capitalize on people's fascination for this beautiful fabric.
   Sally Williams of the Hiram Historical Society will present an illustrated talk on this fascinating, albeit short-lived; industry in southern Maine. 
   Nancy Greenleaf will show how silk is made by hand in the villages of India from her travels there.

   Don't miss this fascinating presentation on:
