Meet Emily Radomski


Emily with some of the textile tools in our collection

Hi everyone!

My name is Emily Radomski, and I’m in my third year of pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Textile Design here at Jefferson University. I am most passionate about knitting and weaving, but also have experience in print design from classes I’ve taken so far, and through collaborations with other students at our university.

This is my first semester working as a Collection Intern at the Design Center, and I could not be more excited about the tasks I’m working on! I will be tackling the cataloging and documentation of textile tools that were donated to the Design Center over the years. I love researching the history of my major and learning more about the evolution of these tools with every item I examine.

In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my chickens and creating fun projects on my knitting machine!

My goal for the future is to have a partnership with my sister, who is in her fifth year of Architecture at Jefferson University and planning on earning her masters in Historic Preservation. She will do the renovation and restoring, and I will design and hand-make interior textiles that fit the aesthetic of the homes!

I’m looking forward to this year – all of the textiles I will make and all of the work I will accomplish at the Design Center!
