Ikat Show at Textile Museum in DC
I stayed several days in DC after our get-together at the Textile Museum and am back in SF now and catching up. Haven't had a chance yet to post photos, but will so do soon. We had a terrific afternoon in the paneled drawing room, with tea, our yarn, and the best company, including our beloved blog moderator Elizabeth Durand and curator of education Tom Goehner, who also gave us a personal tour of the ikat and recycle exhibits.
I want to alert those who were not able to attend that the exquisite ikat exhibit closes on March 13. And, be sure to check out the surprising textile (no reproduction postcard available) from Afghanistan in the recycle exhibit.
