Countless treasures of clothing and accessories, uniforms, costumes, textiles, quilts, and flags exist in collections across the US, but until now no comprehensive directory to these collections was available. This is the first guide to list basic contact information on over 2,400 American collections that include these objects as part of their permanant holdings. Each listing includes location and contact information, and many listings also offer a description of the collection.
