‘Hidden Gems in the Pioneer Museum’, with the Daughters of Utah Pioneers at the McQuarrie Memorial DUP Museum in Saint George UT happens tomorrow, Saturday from 11am – 12:30 pm. Denise Winter, a historical costumer and garment expert, will make a presentation about her work at the Pioneer Museum and the hidden gems she has discovered. She will outline her process and research that has led her to believe that a few of the items are rare and unique. She found a work dress of an early Pioneer woman that outlines its history by the repairs and sewing done to keep it in use, she says a wonderful story unfolds as you examine the dress in pieces. Denise did a great deal of research on three military jackets and was able to document the fact that one of them is the only one in existence! A great deal of work and effort was done to document these jackets and put together their histories. Her presentation will be fascinating and educational. CDC and State of Utah Guidelines will be followed.  Masks are required to enter and during the presentation.  Hand Sanitizer will be available. Social distance seating.
