Special Event: Tour of Perennials Fabrics and Reception

Six AVL looms, one Mountain loom and one TC-2 jacquard – add a team of 10 designers, a unique high-performance yarn stash made from an exclusive acrylic fiber, and one fashion-forward, interior design-trained owner and see what happens. What results in this case is Perennials Fabrics, a high-end upholstery fabric company designing and producing beautiful high-performance fabrics for the luxury home furnishings-market.

Come tour the Dallas-based facility, visit with the design team, and learn how the fabrics are created from design inception and inspiration, through development and into production for sale to the end user – and maybe try your hand at weaving on a jacquard loom! You’ll want to put down your drink and hors d’oeuvres for this chance.

Thursday evening, May 30
