Forum members may be interested in information on the Oxford Asian Textile Group (OATG) which is available via their new website: http://www.oatg.org.uk OATG was originally founded in 1995 by Dr Ruth Barnes with the aim of making the Oxford textile collections better known. As well as its programme of events - mainly in Oxford but with occasional events elsewhere - OATG publishes a very informative Newsletter three times a year. The Newsletter includes articles, details of the current Programme and a very comprehensive listing of exhibitions, lectures, new books and articles, often with reviews. Although OATG started out with the aim of promoting the textiles in the museums in Oxford, almost immediately it spread its cloak wider and contributors and information come not only from the rest of the UK but also from overseas.

I have only managed to get to one OATG talk in Oxford and a couple of special events in London but I particularly value my membership because of the Newsletter. See the OATG website for summary details of all editions of the Newsletter. Some of the previous Newsletters are still available although early editions are now out of print. Hopefully, in due course, these may be available in PDF format. Payment for membership and copies of back isssues is currently only available in £ Sterling and Euros, however, the Treasurer is investigating for the future the possibility of receiving US$ payments.

There is a preliminary listing of links on the website relating to articles and listings in the Newsletter but this remains 'work in progress'.

Thank you for spotting this. I have updated the web reference in the first post above. Slapped wrists to me. I had forgotten about this post when I advised OATG to amend their website name when the 'org.uk' name was available at renewal. And who maintains the OATG website........ and should have thought of this? Guilty!

While I am talking about OATG I will take take the opportunity to mention that, although they are not shouting about it, OATG now accepts PayPal for payment from anyone who does not have a sterling bank account so that means that the excellent member's Newsletter is now available to those outside the UK. I hardly ever get to meetings as Oxford is rather a trek from Canterbury but for me the Newsletter is the core of the membership and well worth the subscription fee. There is usually a summary of meeting talks given in the Newsletter so you don't completely miss out if you don't get there.
