The Project began in the Fall of 1935. It was one of the more unusual and diverse of the handicraft projects in its philosophy and its goals. Its "Project 1170" was a specially created project for women who needed work, interested in becoming self-supporting. Milwaukee County and the Milwaukee State Teachers College were sponsors of the project.
