CELEBRATE NEW JERSEY: Public lecture: Sunday, March 15, 2:00 - 4:00 pm

$7 Admission for non-members & $5 Admission for members.
Speaker Linda Barth, a life-long resident of the Garden State, is a trustee of Celebrate New Jersey!, a grassroots movement that builds pride and fosters a brighter future for New Jersey through educational programs and public initiatives. The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts' Celebrate New Jersey  public program welcomes Barth as she explores the Garden State's diverse physical and cultural geography. Learn what makes New Jersey such an interesting state with its own very fascinating cast of characters: from General George Washington leading his troops across the Delaware River, to the many inventions out of Thomas Edison's laboratory, to the famous firsts like baseball and drive-in movies, to the battleship New Jersey and the Pine Barrens... Barth explores the famous and not-so-famous people, places, and events of our great little state.

STUFFED ANIMAL SLEEPOVER: Tuesday, March 31, 4:00-5:00
Regular Admission: $5 for adults; $3 for all children participating in the program.
Children ages 3-6 are invited to bring a stuffed animal to leave overnight at this favorite annual event at the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts. Fill out Babysitter's Instruction forms, have a bedtime snack, listen to bedtime stories, and tuck the animals in for a night at the museum! Return on April 1, during regular Museum hours, to retrieve your stuffed animal, make a craft, and learn what hi-jinks the animals may have gotten into during the night!

Saturday, April 18, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

This two-session workshop – the first of the Museum’s Home Preservation Workshop Series - will focus on the architectural elements of windows which are, in essence, the “eyes” of buildings. The a.m. session (10:00 am – 12:30 pm) will feature a lecture on the history of double-hung wood sash windows and techniques for improving their energy efficiency and sustainability. The afternoon (1:00 – 4:00 p.m.) will consist of demonstrations of sash window maintenance and repair techniques, glass replacement and re-glazing and paint maintenance. Join us for one, or both, of these informative workshops.
Half-day session, a.m. or p.m.: $40. Full-day: $75. To register, please visit The Morris School District Community School’s Great Horizons Spring 2015 catalog of courses, or call 973-292-2063.
