April 13th: A Message from the Director

Director's Message: 4/13/20

Like many of you who are staying at home during this pandemic, I am catching up on home projects that never seem to get done. This week I went through my collection of textiles to make sure there were no signs of pest (mostly moth) damage. If you have Navajo or other handwoven wool textiles in your collection this is something you want to do on a regular basis.

It is warming up outside and Spring is in the air. As we continue to stay at home teleworking, educating our children, and caring for our loved ones I hope you are able to spend a little time outside enjoying the warmth of the sun.

The last couple of weeks have been challenging for all of us, individually and collectively. In many ways, being apart has highlighted how important it is to come together.
