Dear folks –
On January 11, 2011, Hunter Morin gave a Rug and Textile Appreciation Morning program on the topic “Collecting Bags and Small Rugs.”
Hunter is a long-time Washington , D.C. area collector. As a young person, he knew, personally, a number of prominent members of the Washington textile collecting community that many of us know, now, primarily from books.
Hunter is also a business man, active in his community, Fredericksburg , Virginia , a little south of Washington .
The purpose of this message is to announce the publication of a virtual version of Hunter’s session and some additional views of his collection. It is in two parts, first, one that treats the pieces that Hunter brought into the Museum for this program. But Hunter’s collection is large, and he invited my wife, Jo Ann, and me to come to his home, where we took photos of additional material. Part 2 is devoted to material photographed “in situ.”
You can reach these two posts by clicking on the link immediately below or by copying the link and pasting it into your browser.
This link takes you to an “about” page on my blog. The two posts on Hunter’s “rug morning” and collection are the first two in the column on the right hand side in red letters. Click on them to see these posts.
My thanks to Hunter for permitting me to share this virtual version of his program and the additional images of his collection, with you, and for the considerable editorial assistance he provided in its construction. Thanks, also to Wendel Swan for comment and description for some pieces in Part 1, and to Tim Hays , for a good set of notes on the RTAM portion of these two posts.
You are receiving this email because you are on one of my lists of “ruggies.” If you would prefer not to receive future announcements about such posts, please contact me at Because of unavoidable overlap in my mailing lists, you may receive more than one of these notices. If so, please just use your delete key on the redundant ones. and I will remove your name from my listings.
I do not permit direct comments in this blog, and do not particularly encourage any, but if you have something that you feel is useful to share, you can send it to me at the email address above, with your permission to quote you should I decide to publish it.
I hope you enjoy the virtual version of Hunter's interesting program, as well as of the additional views he has provided of his broader collection.
