My collection of WWI and WWII Workbasket Campaign articles was on display at the Bull Run Regional Library, Manassas, VA during July 2008. Part of the collection is currently on display (until April 2010) at the Historic Freeman House, Vienna, VA. And I am currently working on a book to be entitled Collectibles of the WWI & WWII Workbasket Campaigns Knitting and Sewing for Military, Wounded, & Refugees .consisting of mostly US items but including items from other participants in the World Wars and including a detailed bibliography

This is cool, Karen! What a collector's niche you have!

I've recently been reading about the Bull Run battle in Manassas, VA. If I ever get to that side of the US, I will check out this library!
