Following are some of the quotes from MAT interns about their internship experience:

Summer 2008

Photo of Annie-Beth EllingtonThis internship has been a wonderful adventure.  It enabled me to fine tune my sewing skills and apply these to historic artifacts.  I was able to learn so much in the short amount of time that I was here. Working with such textiles made me feel like I was helping future generations by enabling them to view historic works that are free of slits, stains, and disintegration. - Annie-Beth Ellington, intern TCS, Indianapolis, IN.
