Martin Hollay and a Lifetime of Glove Making

As an apprentice glove maker in Hungary in the 1930s, Martin eventually moved to the U.S. in 1958 settling in South Lake Tahoe to live, ski, raise a family, and continue making hand stitched leather gloves.

Martin will demonstrate the art of glove making using his glove press that is over 100 years old and recently donated to the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum on Thursday, May 31, at 2pm and 6pm.

To match Martin’s robust lifestyle, hearty hors d’oeuvres, wine and refreshments will be served at this free event to be held at the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum in South Lake Tahoe.

Due to high demand and limited space, reservations for the 2pm and 6pm presentations are required.

To get a chance to meet Martin and learn more about his fascinating trade and his fascinating life in Tahoe, please call the LTHS History Museum at 530.541.5458 and provide your name and phone number and which presentation you’d like to attend – 2pm or 6pm.  With only limited space available, priority will be given to members.
