Finally - a new date for the Textilforum!

It has taken us longer than we hoped to find a new date, but at last, the search was successful. Now we don't have a too tight schedule or an overlap with the planned dates of either of the two conflicting conferences, the EXAR conference 2009 in Hungary and the Conference for Archaeological Dyes and Dyeing.

The new date is even a bit earlier in the year, which hopefully means warmer and overall slightly better weather. The Textilforum will take place in the beautiful Open Air Museum in Eindhoven, Netherlands, from the 8th to 13th of September. If you are interested in historical textile crafts, this might be the place for you!

You can find more information at the forum website, where you can also subscribe for the forum newsletter, bringing you news and notice of updates of the site. Or contact me if you have questions.

I found your blog via the MEDTC-Resources list when they posted your profile. This is a very timely find for me as I am an amateur textiles researcher researching 7th century Pictish (No. Scotland, Orkney and Shetland) textile production techniques. At the moment, I'm trying to find evidence of a theory I have regarding the trade between the Norse people (northmen as it were) and these areas prior to "the Viking Invasions."

Pleased to make your acquaintance. Now to get off my duff and really learn German. ;)

I hope you have a good time and a lot of success learning German. You know what they say... it gets easier after the fifth or so language. ; )
