“How Can I Connect?”

 (Click the link to open a pdf file with the entire keynote address)

We know that the creation of textiles through spinning, dyeing and  weaving connects all cultures.  Deborah Chandler inspired us with her thoughts about connecting to other cultures through a shared interest in textiles at the May 2017 CHT Conference in Houston, Texas.  In the conference keynote address, she gave us a lot of good suggestions and ideas for how to connect with other cultures  – plus the photos!!
