For those of you who like to plan ahead and/or are interested in submitting a teaching proposal, start thinking now:

2010 Textile Society of America Symposium
Textiles and Settlement: From Plains Space to Cyber Space

October 6-9, 2010
Lincoln, Nebraska


The 2010 TSA Symposium will be held in Lincoln, Nebraska (Home of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Textiles, Clothing & Design, the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery, and the International Quilt Study Center & Museum).

Keynote speaker for the symposium will be Sheila Kennedy, an architect, whose Portable Light project creates new ways to provide renewable power in solar textiles that can be adapted to meet the needs of people in different cultures and global regions. The Portable Light uses a thin-film photovoltaic textile and LEDs to harvest electrical energy and provide a completely self-contained source of renewable power and light.

The 2010 Symposium will be housed at the recently remodeled Cornhusker Marriott Hotel in downtown Lincoln. www.textilesociety.org
