I’m happy to say that I have made a small start on the Textile Museums map which I have meant to compile ever since I started this blog. It is on Google Maps here. Let me know if you have any problems viewing it.
I have a whole lot more links to museums saved in my Favourites so I will gradually add them over the next few days (hopefully) or weeks (probably)…. If you know of any more, please leave a comment or email me, preferably with a website if you know it and I’ll put it in. I’ve put a link on the sidebar too.
I’ve been wondering if there is any way to set this so that it is editable by anyone, or more than just me… If anyone has any idea about this, do let me know! I had an idea about putting it on Wikipedia but one look at the map how-to instructions put me off! It looks far too technical for me…
Give me a week or so to enter all my links on the map, and then please see if your local textile museum, or any you know about, is on there and let me know if it isn’t.
You can view it by zooming in on the area you’re interested in, or browsing the links on the left.
Update: in the process of compiling this map, I have discovered a lot of online ‘museums’ and textile resources, so I have put them onto a permanent page on this blog – you can see a link to it on the sidebar under ‘Pages’.
