Ethnic Textiles of Germans from Russia

Desert and Guest Speaker (Dr Ann W Braaten)


Bring generous portions of food and your family to our annual spring banquet celebration.   Beverages, plates, cups, glasses and eating utensils are provided.  Mark dishes and serving spoons so they can return home with you.   Electric outlets are available for crockpots. 


The program speaker will provide us with a better understanding of textiles as related to the Germans from Russia.   Textiles proved evidence of women's roles in the agrarian culture of Germans from Russia and evidence of their experiences moving through and into a global society.  GfR self-sufficiency and thriftiness helped foster women's textile traditions, continued into the early 1900s even through commercially available textiles were available in the marketplace.  Dr Braaten will show examples of textiles from the Germans from Russia Heritage Collection at the NDSU Libraries and will discuss how cultural and political forces affected Germans from Russia lives and textile traditions.
