In connection with the rapid spread of the corona virus and in line with government recommendations, the TRC has decided to remain closed to the public until at least 28 April. This also means that various activities planned for this period have been cancelled or postponed.
In the meantime, the TRC focusses on describing and photographing textiles for the TRC online catalogue, writing blogs on specific TRC related subjects, developing online exhibitions, publishing embroidery charts based on items in the TRC collection, and planning 'real' activities for when the TRC can open its doors again. We also organised an extra TRC Intensive Textile course, from 17-21 August (see below).
In doing all of this, the TRC is enthusiastically supported by all its volunteers and others who are willing to spend time and thought on promoting and making accessible the unique resources of the TRC.
