On this third day of #historyinherhands for Women’s History Month, I share a recent mending project. This millinery block arrived broken and needed to be repaired to join the collection. Few of these plaster millinery blocks remain compared to how many were in use, due to their fragile nature and how quickly the fashions and shapes for bonnets changed. Of those that survived the years, each shows its own wear and at times mending.
