Hillary Anderson joined the Textile Museum of Canada in June 2012 as the museum’s conservator. Her position involves the many aspects of safely caring for the objects on display and in storage in the collection. Hillary began her association with the museum in 2004 as a collections and conservation volunteer; she was originally only to volunteer for a summer and instead stayed for five years. That experience inspired her to pursue textile conservation as a profession. She later graduated with a diploma from Fleming College- Peterborough’s Collections Conservation and Management program in 2011. She also holds a degree in Fashion Design from Ryerson University in Toronto. Her previous experience includes a textile conservation internship for Historic Royal Palaces in England and assisting in the conservation of a historic banner owned by the Charitable Irish Society of Halifax.
