Textilforum Call for Papers

The official Call for Papers for the Textilforum is now out, and a copy is up at our website.

Whether you are researching a textile project involving the craft aspects, working in textile restauration or a professional dyer, tablet weaver or spinner using historical textile techniques, go over there and send us some info about you, your work and a proposal for a paper or presentation. We also need a few more people to take part in the Spinning Experiment, so if you are a seasoned hand spindle spinner, you can use the form to tell us, too. The experiment time (spinning time of 10 hours) will be spaced over five days, so a bit more than two hours each morning will be spinning experiment time, and time for your own disposal after that.

And if you know somebody who might be interested, please pass on the information!

I'm sorry - as much as I'd like to participate, I am already in Florence that week...

I'm sorry to hear you can't come because of date clashes - I'm still waiting for the invention of a Glorious Date Clash Disabling Device, a thingummy that will allow to shift dates individually - like recording a telly broadcast on the VCR to view it later. Until this thingummy-gadget is available, though... we will all have to decide where to go.
There is a chance, however, that the Forum will become a yearly event, so if the first try is successful, you might be able to join us next year.
