Here is the announcement from the Thai Textile Society:

Symbolism in Chinese Children's Hats and Bibs: Folklore, Bonding, and Mother's Affectionate Embrace
Dr. Phylis Lan Lin and Christi Lan Lin
Date: 6 January 2007
Time: 10:30a.m. – 12:30p.m.

The Thai Textile Society and the Siam Society, are jointly hosting a lecture on symbolism in Chinese children’s costume presented by Dr. Phylis Lan Lin and Christi Lan Lin. Folk culture is a reflection of the minds and the souls of the ordinary people. Embroidery was a symbol of femininity in Chinese traditional society. Every stitch and every thread of mother's handwork on children's hats, bibs, shoes, clothes, and baby carriers is the deepest expression of mother's affectionate embrace to her child. The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the symbolism attached to Chinese children's wares (hats, bibs, shoes, clothes, and baby carriers) as a reflection of Chinese culture and family bonding. Examples of children’s bibs and hats from the collection of Christi Lan Lin will illustrate the presentation.

Christi Lan Lin is the author of Stories of Chinese Children's Hats: Symbolism and Folklore (in Chinese, English); Boding Via Baby Carriers: The Art and Soul Of the Miao and Dong People (in Chinese, English, Japanese); and Symbolism of Chinese Children's Bibs: A Mother's Affectionate Embrace (in Chinese, English, Japanese).

Phylis Lan Lin is a Professor of Sociology and the Director of Asian Programs at the University of Indianapolis. and holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Missouri—Columbia. Dr. Lin spends her leisure hours studying Chinese arts and folk art. She has co-authored with Christi Lan Lin, Chinese Children’s Hats: Symbolism and Folklore. Dr. Lin will have an exhibition and give lectures, on her collection of Chinese minority textiles at the Christle DeHaan Fine Arts Center in March-May, 2007.
