Upcoming (inter)national textile related events

My apologies first for not entering new messages and sharing information sooner. I realise I am not a social media fan by heart but I will try to write more often.  I want to inform you about the following textile events:

* on 16 & 17 March the "Textiel Plus Kunstdagen" are being held in Deventer.There will be a suppliers market where a.o. Zijdelings will have a booth selling materials.
On my stand there will be various demonstrations by Annette Jeukens (SDAmember) on Friday, and
on Saturday Gil De Vloo (from Belgium) will show and tell about completely different topics. For information regarding the event pls go to

* on March 30 - April 1 the  SDA - SAQA joint conference "Identity: Context & Reflection" will be held in Philadelphia (USA). Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this one myself.
For more information pls visit the SDA website and check under conferences where you will find all relevant details. Let me know if you are going and pls send me a report and some images to share with your fellow members here in Europe.

* on 22-26 August Chunghie Lee is organizing her "Korean Bojagi Forum". Chunghie taught a wonderful BOJAGI class at my studio in 2010. She is following her dream and holding a special BOJAGI conference in South Korea. If you are interested to participate and for more information pls check
