March 10thTextile Collection Tour Update

Hello Spinsisters and brothers......We are looking forward to our visit to URI on March 10th from 1-4pm. Margaret Ordonez will be giving us a short tour of the collection.

We will also be able to knit or spin in a room that will be available that day. Feel free to take your fiber tools if you so desire. I'm thinking that taking a spindle and knitting is a good idea.

Directions to URI:
From the north, take I-95 South to Exit 9 (Route 4 South) in RHODE ISLAND, follow Route 4 to Route 1 South. Stay on Route 1 until the intersection of Route 138 West. Take a right onto Route 138 West which will bring you to the University.

From the south, take I-95 North to Exit 3A (Route 138 East). Continue east on Route 138 to the University.

Travel to Upper College Rd. Stop at the Information Center which will be on the right . The booth attendant will give you a parking pass and direct you to the closest parking lot next to Ranger Rd. There is handicapped parking in that area as well.

The collection is in Quinn Hall on the 3rd floor in Rm 306. There is an elevator that is handicapped accessible.

Food and beverages will be available at the Memorial Union across from Quinn Hall from 10-5pm. It was suggested that we should eat before 1pm so that we can enjoy the collection. A Walking Emporium near the parking lot is also open on Saturday.
