******* Welcome to our new guild officers, and welcome back to our continuing ones! *******
Next meeting: August 12
August 2016 - We received a note from Sue Richardson about the textile tours to the Lesser Sunda Islands:
In May of this year we led our third textile tour around the Lesser Sunda Islands of Indonesia on board the Ombak Putih. It was a great success with more and more weavers and dyers getting involved each time we go there. Three of the twelve cabins are already booked for next year's tour and I'm attaching a mailer which gives more details in case this is of interest to your members. Tour information.
July 2016 - If you are traveling to Quebec this summer, you may want to check out this textile and fiber arts event.
February 2016 - Here is a new web site to explore, and an introductory message from the owners:We are pleased to announce the launch of a new website - Asian Textile Studies – designed for those with a serious interest in traditional hand-woven textiles (see screenshot of Home page below).
We have been working on this material for the last few years and have just uploaded the first pages, which focus on the subject of natural dyeing. Much more content will be added over time. We hope this will be of interest to members of your Guild. Please take a look, and share this among the wider textile community.
