The RSN hosts Online Talks featuring some of our 4,000 Textile Collection pieces which gives attendees the opportunity to see some of the stunning, and often rare, pieces in close detail as well as hear more about the RSN, it’s past and it’s present. Plus, hear and see work from special guests from the wider world of embroidery.

Important information for Online Talk attendees

Please note that our exclusive Live Talks are NOT available to view immediately after the events, but you can book and watch some of our previous talks on demand now

All Live Talks are scheduled and advertised in UK local time (GMT or BST depending on the time of year). If you are outside of the UK please check your local time, particularly if your location changes to/from Daylight Savings Time on a different schedule to the UK during March/April or October/November. To check and convert times please visit

After booking a Live Talk, you will receive a personalised Zoom invite via email no later than 24 hours before each event (3 hours if booked on the day). The invite should arrive ‘from’ [email protected] – we strongly recommend that you add this address to your ‘Safe Senders’ or ‘Do not Block’ list to ensure safe receipt.

If you do not receive your invite by the above deadline please first check your ‘junk/spam’ mail folder to ensure it hasn’t been routed there by mistake. If you still do not have the invite, please email [email protected] no later than 30 minutes before the event is due to start. Please include your order reference number.

All RSN webinars include live Closed Captioning (subtitles). These can be disabled if not required.
