On the 10th of May Rolf and I are travelling to the US. We will visit Rolfs family in Colorado and Georgia. I don't have any idea if there is a textile museum somewhere "near" or an exhibition, gallery.........
We will stay in the US until the 23th of May.
Thanks a lot! Monique

As a starter have a look at this link http://cumuseum.colorado.edu/Exhibits/N ... ction.html Try and see some Navajo weavings when you are in the south west.

Your visit is too early for this http://www.georgiaquiltcouncil.com/museum.htm

Best I can do on initial Googling!

Look out for quilts anywhere you go.

good luck!

If you are going to be near Atlanta, Georgia, you may be interested in contacting or visiting Marla Mallett.

Marla, of course, is a member of this forum although often contributes via me rather than directly when I ask her for help and she kindly shares her very considerable weaving wisdom and experience.

Definitely follow up Sharon's link and look at the gallery http://www.tactilearts.org/gallery.html as there is:

World Threads II

Preserving Fiber Traditions

Saturday, April 24 through Friday, May 28, 2010.

World Threads, Preserving Fiber Traditions is an exhibit of traditional textiles, basketry and beadwork from developing countries in Africa, South and Central America, and Southeast Asia shared by local collectors. In addition to the exhibit, this show will include a sale of traditional crafts and textiles from around the world to benefit local humanitarian assistance organizations that support the creation and preservation of the fiber arts in developing countries.

Special Saturday presentations
May 1, 8, 15 & 22

The participating organizations will present information about their projects in developing countries.
Six locally based, humanitarian groups will have handcrafted fiber art from around the world for sale to support their work.

You might be interested to read a blog which, by chance, Susan Stem mentioned to me today http://refugeecrafts.blogspot.com/ which just happens to be something that forum member Sharon is closely involved with and which has as its top item info about World Threads II at:

TACtile Textile Arts Center
Tamarac Square
E. Hampden Ave. at S. Quebec St., Suite 114
(Lower Level, near Rodney's Restaurant)
Denver, Colorado

Hours: 11:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
720.524.8886 info@tactilearts.org

As soon as I read the name I thought 'that rings a bell....!' I love it when one thing leads to another so nicely! Would be great if you can get there and give us feedback as it sounds like something you would be interested in and want to support.

Have a great time!

Visit TACtile's homepage and then link to their Facebook page. Yesterday they posted several dozen pictures of the World Threads II event. Delicious!
(I can't give the FB link here because I'm at work where all social networking is blocked!)

Hi Monique;

I went by TACtile Arts today, and must say that they have a very interesting exhibition as well as an area where many textiles are available should you see something that you would like for a collection. It was the first time I have had a chance to see and touch many textiles I've seen in photos but had no prior experience, as I'm a neophyte collector.

The Denver Art Museum also has quite an extensive textile collection that focuses (I believe) on mainly European and American Textiles. I hope your visit to Denver is enjoyable.

I have moved this thread to the Travel section of the forum as I think it will be easier for us to find in future. A copy remains on the General forum as well.

Thank you ever so much for the suggestions. I have printed out the information on the World threads II. I will surely try to visit this exhibition and come back to the forum with my story.

Monique
