If you have an object from the 1960s relevant to one of the themes of the exhibition and would be willing to loan or donate it, I would love to hear from you — just fill in the contact form below. A full credit will be given (unless otherwise requested) on display labels and in all literature accompanying the exhibition. Items will be handled and displayed with utmost care and returned in a timely fashion once the exhibition has ended.
Items I am hoping to source include a sewing machine, an Irish Housewives Association membership pin, knitting / sewing patterns, recipe books or handwritten recipes, kitchenalia, manuals for domestic appliances or anything else you might think would fit. I am also looking for marriage manuals that pre-date the 1960s. Items need not be in pristine condition.
Examples of objects already sourced can be found here.
Alternatively, you can help fund the exhibition by making a secure donation via FundIt. Further details here.
