We’re all in this together: Coronavirus 2020

This is a ‘Special’ Section of the Virtual Tea Towel Museum, set up as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.  The purpose is to allow, and enable, people to write, in as much detail as they want, about their personal experience of the virus, whether it is because you’ve had it, you know someone that has had it, because you are in ‘lockdown’, because you are a ‘key worker’, because you are frightened, because you’ve found interesting things to do in this strange period, whatever…….

You might live in UK or anywhere else in the world; because it affects everyone.  The fact is that we should never forget this experience and hopefully we should learn from it.

And because this is a Virtual Tea Towel Museum, I will publish an appropriate Tea Towel to link with your story; if you have one of your own then I’ll need a photograph………. We’re all in this together.

  1. I Love your tea towels. For Japanese, tea towels are prized household items. For Me, I usually receive them as gifts and have never thought to purchase ones that I really like. You inspire Me to get my own tea toerls

    • Thank you for your comments. Have you got a special tea towel that you would like to write about and I could put it in Guest Tea Towels 2020. I would need a photograph of the tea towel, your first name and the story. You could write about the Japanese custom of tea towels. Hope to hear from you. Barbara
