Conservation and Restoration of Textiles In Wikipedia.
Some Comments On The Care Of Navajo Textiles from the Arizona State Museum.

Plan ahead for Braids 2016, Tacoma, USA. The Braid Society is planning the Third International Braiding and Narrow Weaves Conference to be held from July 31 to August 6, 2016 at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. The co-chairs for this conference are Robyn Spady and Giovanna Imperia.
Meanwhile, check out the first Texas Kumihimo Retreat right here in Houston.
