HISTORY OF THE ESTATE

Kathleen Sweeney, Occupational Therapist employed by the State of Wisconsin, became interested in textiles and design after taking a course in weaving from UW professors Helen Louise Allen and Ruth Ketterer Harris. Her interest grew with the supportive encouragement of the two professors and Kathleen began to  collect related books and samples of different textiles, especially lace and embroidery. The following years her interest in textile making expanded to tools and techniques used to create all things related to textile making. In retirement years Kathleen continued to travel the world to find the early sources of textiles and each trip contained more discoveries, more excitement. Several varied collections are the result of the curiosity of this Irish / Norwegian lass. Kathleen died in February of this year, leaving behind the results of 40 years of collecting and creating, sharing and teaching….all of which is now offered for sale via auction In Which Most of the Proceeds will be donated to the UW
