We have had several emails about what is happening to the TRC's current American Quilt exhibition, as we are shut because of the corona virus epidemic and may be for some time.

The main question is: How can people still see the exhibition? Well, as soon as it is possible (hopefully in late April) we will re-open the TRC. We have also extended the exhibition until at least the end of August. We are also planning to remain open in July, and not close the premises for that month, as we normally do, so there will be much more time to see the exhibition! We are also making an online exhibition based on the textboards, with photographs of all the objects in the display.

Another question that is frequently asked is what is happening to the quilts while we are closed? Won't they get damaged when they are hanging for a long time? The answer is simple: we are giving them a ‘rest’! We have already taken the quilts down that were hanging on poles and we rolled them up. The other quilts have been folded and stored flat. As soon as the TRC re-opens they will be put back on display.
