10:00am Workshop and,
Tour of the Center
“Shibori, Dyeing of silk scarves”

The Program:
“Making Silk Scarves”
A Hands-on Workshop at The Textile Center
The workshop starts at 10:00, so arrive slightly prior to that.
We will be making “shibori” scarves.The center has scheduled our
workshop until 1:00 pm, but it may not be quite that long.
Somewhere in that time, we get to explore their library, which looks
pretty interesting. Perhaps it is between drying times for the scarves.
1:00 pm: Lunch at nearby restaurant. We can have a business meeting
during our lunch. I picked this location since it is only 2 blocks away
and appears to be spacious, which should help us to be able to talk
