Behind the Scenes Museum Tour
Join us for a private viewing of historic knitted objects from the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection at the University of Wisconsin School of Human Ecology.  We selected 40 objects from many cultures.  You will see  knitting from the 1870's and later.  These are items that are not on permanent display but will be shown exclusively to us.  We will see  a variety of lace samplers and borders, doilies, color stranded gloves and mittens, hats, socks, shawls and beaded purses. This event is free but is limited to 30 guild members. 

You may wish to add a little extra time to view the Design Gallery, which is directly across the hall from HLATC.  They will have an exhibit of student and alumni work on display. 

We encourage carpooling.  Those who want to carpool can allow their name to be shown to other members; please be bold and invite others to carpool with you. 

See the interactive campus map for bus and parking information.  Metered public parking is available in lots 60, 43, 38, 20 and 27 near Nancy Nicholas Hall. From lots 60 or 43, hop on a free campus bus (route 80) and get off at Linden Drive.  From there it is a short walk to Nancy Nicholas Hall.  Spaces in lots 38, 20, and 27 are more limited, but these lots are generally within walking distance.  We strongly urge carpooling and arriving early in case the spots in your targeted garage are filled.

Wheelchair accessibility is available for the Nancy Nicholas Hall in Parking Garage lot 27.
