      Apparently, there is a Sake Tasting at the Textile museum on Thursday,
      January 19th in Washington, DC. I'm not sure if anyone is interested, but
      thought I'd share:

      *The Art of Rozome Meets the World of Sake**

      Thursday, January 19 at
      **The Textile Museum*


      *DID YOU KNOW* that sake is as nuanced as wine? That color, aroma and flavor
      are qualities determined by the purity of the water and rice used to make
      the sake, as well as by the skill of the brew master?

      On *Thursday, January 19, 6-8 pm* join with The Textile Museum's New
      Horizons Committee to savor some of the best of contemporary Japan,
      including exquisite textiles and fine boutique sakes. Local sake specialist
      Christian Choi, accompanied by sake sommelier Keita Akaboshi, will guide us
      through the ins and outs of Japan's quintessential drink as we sample a
      selection of boutique sakes and enjoy Japanese appetizers. Learn about the
      various grades of sake, what makes each one distinctive, and the foods with
      which they are best paired. To round out this fascinating evening, explore
      textiles by contemporary Japanese artists with Rebecca A.T. Stevens, The
      Textile Museum's Consulting Curator for Contemporary Textiles, who will give
      gallery tours of the current exhibition *Rozome Masters of
      Japan*<http://postsnet.com/r.html?c=614581&r=613929&t=275703151&l=1&d=86679542&u=http%3a%2f%2fwww%2etextilemuseum%2eorg%2fexhibitions%2fcurrent%2ehtm&g=0&f=-1>.



      *FEE:* $35/TM-members; $45/non-members.
      Advance registration required.

      For reservations or more information, please call (202) 667-0441, ext. 49 or

            Greetings from Solveig! I am trying to buy a book from a store in Kanda
            which doesn't normally ship overseas. Is there anyone here who could I
            have them ship it to who would then send it to me? Thank you very much.
