Caucasian Rugs and Textiles from Three Collections
- Dear folks –
The post here announces a virtual version of a Textile Museum Rug and Textile Appreciation Morning (RTAM) given by three collectors in the nearby West Virginian part of Washington, D.C.'s suburbia.
It was presented at The Textile Museum on February 14, 2009.
Jerry Thompson, has been presenting TM "rug morning" sessions since the 1970's. It is his collection and those of his friends, George Manger and Tom Newcomer, from which the pieces shown were drawn.
"Rug mornings" on Caucasian rugs are popular and draw lots of participants, as well as pieces brought in by the audience.
