Opening of the TRC American Quilts exhibition, 5th February 2020, by Marja Verloop, the Deputy Chief of Mission of the American Embassy, The Hague.Opening of the TRC American Quilts exhibition, 5th February 2020, by Marja Verloop, the Deputy Chief of Mission of the American Embassy, The Hague.On Friday, 7th February 2020, Gillian Vogelsang wrote:

The American Quilt exhibition has just been officially opened (5th February 2020) and it was a most inspiring event with lots of visitors!

It started with a lecture by Susan Cave on the history of American quilts. The talk was illustrated with photographs of quilts form the exhibition and numerous anecdotes based on Susan’s long experience of working with quilts.

Additional, and more technical details were provided by Beverley Bennett. Lynn Kaplanian-Buller presented details about Mennonite relief quilts (three of which are on display in the exhibition).

The official opening was conducted by Marja Verloop, the Deputy Chief of Mission of the American Embassy, The Hague. A textile lover, she understands the value of American quilts to reflect artistic, economic, social, technical, and trade histories, and of course, the quilts tell about the importance of women’s social and personal history.

Ms. Verloop was presented with a quilted cushion decorated with a Dresden Plate design, which had been especially made by Beverley Bennett for the occasion.

There was then the chance for everyone to visit the exhibition and to partake of a small reception with drinks and snacks. The exhibition promises to be very popular judging by the reaction of those present and by the numerous visitors on the first day!
