The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) houses and has made available for research one of the finest weaving archives in the nation—the Churchill Weavers collection. Churchill Weavers was a handweaving business that operated in Berea, Kentucky, from 1922 to 2007. The company was once considered America’s premier producer of luxury handwoven goods.

The Churchill Weavers Fellowship provides opportunities for scholars to connect with this important archive. The collection is comprehensive and holds promise to enrich scholarship in labor history, the history of 20th century capitalism, technology and innovation in weaving and mass manufacturing, and in the history of Appalachia. 

The application deadline is September 1, 2017.
