Nordic Textile Meeting in Borås 2021 - Talking hands

We in the Swedish part of the board of NTA have in recent months tried and tried to find a possibility to run the annual meeting as well as the exhibition in the best way possible but have now been forced to face the fact that we will not be able to carry out the program as we planned.

Unfortunately, we have to cancel most of the program for Nordic Textile Meeting and reduce the event from four to only one day, but the program can now be followed online. And on site at the Textile Museum for those who want and are able. Museet är stängt för allmänheten, men museet öppnar för NTA. Vi kommer att ha hela museet för oss själva.

Are you coming to Borås? The registration will be open 2.2.  - 22.2 2021. (Det finns platser kvar.) Let us know by sending an email to 

Do you want to join the online program? You will find the links at the website of The Swedish Museum of Textile.
