On February 6, TASA held its annual business meeting at the home of Nancy Hollister. Future programs discussed include a curated tour of the Bullock Hall quilt exhibit in March. a program on textiles from Ghana and Ivory coast and a program on Indigo dyed cloth.
TASA members brought interesting textiles to share with each other: a double ikat/geringsing piece from Bali, Korean folding cloth/bojagi, a cut and pieced cloth from India, a purse made from potola/double ikat cloth from India, a jacket fashioned from Indian kantha cloth, a celebratory ikat cloth featuring the Dutch queen from Sumba, and a pre-Columbian Huari (500 – 800 AD) head band from Peru.
Durshi Zoberi brought a miscellaneous collection of interesting textiles from India and other countries to sell with proceeds going to charity.
