The Clack Museum needs materials to help it care for the acquisitions stored in its collection since the museum moved from the Hill County Fairgrounds.
It needs wooden clothes hangers. It needs clean worn, cotton clothing, including socks, sheets and towels, and any cotton items that are surplus to your needs. It needs 3- to- 5-inch diameter tubes of any length like carpet and paper rolls. It needs white twill tape.
The wooden hangers will be padded with cloth and covered with sterile, acid-free material so the shoulder seams of garments will be protected. The carpet rolls will be covered with acid-free polyethylene and used to store quilts, rugs, bedspreads and tablecloths. These rolls will be fitted into sterile cloth bags which will carry identifying labels.
The white twill tape is needed to provide labels for clothes and other textile artifacts and will be sewn into the hems or edges of fabrics.
There will be labeled boxes in the lobby of the Heritage Center building into which these items can be placed and frequently gathered.
If you wish to add a piece of paper with your name and address, the museum will send you a thank-you note. Should you have no transportation to bring these items, other than carpet rolls, phone Elinor Clack at 265-5152. Call her with your questions. Leave messages on her answering machine or contact her via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
