“Each of these artifacts has a history here in town,” said Penny, former director of the Westford Museum. “By looking at them and learning their stories, it connects us with the people who lived in Westford before us.”
Each of the other pieces – some clothing, household items and accoutrements – will be pulled from storage, where they are kept safe but are rarely seen. Join us for a dive into these Fibers of Life!

Our presenter, Penny Lacroix,  is a weaver, spinner, teacher, historian, manager, learner, creator and general lover of all things fiber. When she’s not actively learning something, she’s sharing with others in one way or another –making something by hand, demonstrating at historic events, or teaching a class. With past careers as an engineer, a mom, a museum educator and a museum director, combined with her hobby as a historical reenactor, her worlds collide in the creation of textiles and the study of historic textile tools. Penny is co-chair of the Nashoba Valley Weavers’ Guild and teaches weaving and spinning. She lives in Westford, MA with her husband and their furry friends.
