& Textile Appreciation Mornings
In Memory of Harold Keshishian
All are welcome to expand their knowledge of the textile arts and meet fellow textile admirers at our ongoing Rug & Textile Appreciation Mornings, held Saturdays each month at 10:30 a.m. and recently renamed in honor of late Textile Museum trustee emeritus, Harold M. Keshishian. Speakers include local collectors and experts who share pieces from their own holdings. Visitors are invited to bring in clean, well-vacuumed examples of featured types from their own collections to share with the group. Seating is limited, so please arrive early. Free; no reservations required. See
the calendar page for descriptions
of upcoming programs.
This ongoing program, now held the first Friday of every month
(through the end of 2013) from 10:30 am to 1 pm, gives visitors
the opportunity to learn more about their own textiles from Textile
Museum curatorial and conservation staff. While Museum curators
specialize in the textile arts of non-Western cultures, the conservation
staff can answer questions about caring for textiles produced
worldwide. Fee: free/members; $5/non-nembers. No reservations required.
Drop-in tours that feature an overview of the architecture The Textile Museum's historic buildings, once home to museum founder George Hewitt Myers, are offered every Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 pm.
No reservations required.

The Textile Museum has suspended exhibition tours and programming for students until its reopening at GW in fall 2014, and plans are currently underway to redesign perennial progams, including our free family festival, Celebration of Textiles. Please stay tuned for details on how we're bringing your favorite programs to the new museum.
