Governor Heineman Declares October Textiles Month

09 Sep 2010    

Governor Dave Heineman has declared October "Textiles Month" in acknowledgment of the choice by the Textile Society of America to hold its biennial symposium here in Lincoln, under the sponsorship of TCD and the College of Education and Human Sciences. Professor Wendy Weiss and Dr. Diane Vigna, co-chairs of the conference, have been working tirelessly over the last two years in planning toward this event. Along with a host of assistants and volunteers, they have engineered a diverse program of presentations, panels, workshops, tours and exhibitions, and over 20 venues will be showing textile art in all of its rich and dynamic diversity. TCD salutes Prof. Weiss and Dr. Vigna and their team in recognition of their commitment and thorough planning toward what promises to be a singular and outstanding program, and we look forward to welcoming textiles artists, historians, scholars and enthusiasts from all over the world. More information can be found at the website of the Textile Society of America.
