In order to highlight the history of quilting and quilts (and not just American quilts), the TRC will be organising a Question and Answer Day on quilts. Please feel free to bring one or two quilts or quilted items with you (but no more than that!) and ask the questions about quilts and quilting you have always wanted to ask (and perhaps have answered). The Q&A is presented by Beverley Bennett and Susan Cave, two TRC volunteers and specialists in (American) quilts and quilting.The Q&A day is free of charge, but donations to support the TRC would be greatly appreciated!

Of course, everyone is welcome, also without a quilt, to see the velvet exhibition and meet the staff of the TRC.

Date: 13 April 2019. Time: 10.00 until 16.00. Entrance: free. Venue: TRC, Hogewoerd 164, 2311 HW Leiden.
