A central mission of Museum Textile Services is to educate museum professionals, volunteers, students, and the public on issues related to textiles, conservation, and museum studies. Our entire staff contributes to the development, distribution, and instruction of educational workshops, one-day classes, guest lectures, webinars, and conference presentations. The MTS Blog and MTS Magazine also allow us to delve more deeply into the history of the textiles we conserve, and share technical information for museum professionals.
