Artifact Spotlight

Do you have a best friend? Do you have a special way you show your friendship? Girls at the Moravian Young Ladies Seminary exchanged tokens like this one to show their love for their friends.
This ribbon work piece, a craft unique to the Moravians, was made by Mary Ritter while she was a student at the Ladies' Seminary in 1824. The pattern is called a victory wreath and was one of the most popular at Moravian schools in the 1820s and 1830s. The phrase embroidered in red silk says, "God be merciful unto you & bless you!"

Best Friends Forever

Did you know March is National Crafting Month? We're happy to celebrate the end of March with a classic craft - friendship bracelets!
There are many different ways to make bracelets, and you can use your creativity to make all different kinds! We've used beads, embroidery floss, cording, and yarn.
