Silk Tapestries 

The Strawberry Hill Museum presents a display of Silk Tapestries from The National Silk Art Museum of Weston, Missouri. The process was pioneered by Joseph-Marie-Jacquard (1752 -1834). Jacquard used punch cards to control patterns on a special loom, which cause the reverse to be the exact negative of the original.
Saturdays, Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: May 1. Continues through July 25, 2010
