Following the positive reaction of Ruth Blau I can inform you that next year
in June we will have a very intersting exhibition with an ancient Chinese
brocadeloom in the Geldrop weaving museum. We will have a professor from the
Nanjing Brocade Institute giving demonstrations.
On this occasion we will organise a program containing other intersting
weaving sites and local sightseeing. Various Dutch weaving circles and
members of the international Damask Network will also be there, we expect.
So lots of reasons to visit us next year. For additional information please
contact Laura Diepenbroek l.diepenbroek@...

What a good description; I've looked at some old drawings of this setup
and now I can better grasp the process. Thank you.
