Just thought that some forum members might be interesting in following Sandra Niessen on the first part of her 'Back to the Villages' project - taking her book Legacy in cloth to the Batak weavers and dyers in North Sumatra who helped her during her 30 years of research and writing of the book.

Sandra is currently in Sumatra doing some ground work on a weaving tour she is going to lead in 2011 and taking the opportunity to begin giving out copies of Legacy. She is in contact with me and sharing the ups and downs of the trip, much of it in the form of text for her blog. Hopefully when she comes up for air we can add photos to illustrate the posts. She is currently in Karo country and I am awaiting with baited breath her next blog!

It is now noon and we have come back from Kaban Jahe. I gave away the first book to twiners in a slum and am writing a new blog for you. It was an amazing experience.


There are links to Sandra's blog off the menu on every page of her website www.bataktextiles.com
