Awww shucks! You make me blush... and smile. One of the highlights of the conference for me was getting to spend some time with YOU! Hope the new chapter is off to a great start.

This looks like a great conference. I've not read through all the links yet but I'll be back to finish reading them.
Glad you enjoyed it and good luck with the new job - although I guess you've started it by now - I hope it proves a success.


Thank you for the reference to our blog! I'm so glad you found useful information on there and please let me know if there is anything else you'd like to see as we're always looking for ways to expand. Also, great coverage of the SDA conference. I love reading about events when I cannot attend as it's so helpful to know what others are up to.

Thanks for the plug on wornthrough! (I'm a senior contributor). This round-up on the Surface Design Conference is useful as well.

Good luck tomorrow! That's what I want to be... a "global textile explorer" and a "textilian"! Sounds like you heard some great speakers.

Sounds like it was a fabulous conference! I enjoyed your comments on the speakers.

AND you are starting a new job, yay! May all go well with that, Lainie.

    Slow Cloth involves skill and has the possibility of mastery.

    Slow Cloth acknowledges the rich diversity and multicultural history of textile art.
  • Teaching
    Slow Cloth honors its teachers and lineage even in its most contemporary expressions.
  • Materials
    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
  • Expression
    Slow Cloth is expressive of individuals and/or cultures. The human creative force is reflected and evident in the work.
