History Center Curator Philip Mohr looks forward to launching this program.

"Some items in the collections never make it into exhibits," he said, "and this is a great opportunity to see some of those hidden treasures. This is also a great opportunity to share your family's history without donating it to the museum."

Mohr added that the public is welcome to post a photo of any of their home-sewn items on desplainesmemory.org.

Collectors Evening will occur every third month on a Thursday evening. For information, call (847) 391-5399.
