URI Textile Visit Was a Success
Last Saturday about 12 guild members enjoyed Margaret Ordonez's URI TextileTour. We began the visit with information about URI's textile program. Magaret told us about the conservation work that is done in her department and showed us samples of the work. Next we visited some of the classrooms which contained looms, fabric samples, and large quantities of textiles. The pictures say much more then I can about the wonderful examples of textiles from the 17th 18th and 19th centuries as well as the recent past. I welcome other members to post about their experiences.
