ACOR 7 rolled up the rugs last weekend after a spectacular display of Turkmen rugs from the Michael Rothberg collection, a spacious and busy Dealers Row, a Northwest Collections exhibit and more.

Dealer’s Row
Here are some photos from Dealers Row, although it was more like a covered bazaar with a maze of dealers.

This booth was Bruce Froemming’s display of embroideries. He also presented a seminar on them.

On the left is Jerry Silverman and on the right is Danny Mehra. In between are two of the many hard-working volunteers who kept everything under control. (no, there was not one volunteer per ACOR attendant) And a lovely Genje rug is hanging in the background.
