R. John Howe’s blog and website Textiles and Text, with virtual versions of the Textile Museum’s “Rug & Textile Appreciation Morning Programs”, has gained a lot of interest from rug collectors on the internet. John launched his site in December 2007 and has published close to 25 virtual presentations of lectures held at the Textile Museum. John has also launched a website Excentric Wefts devoted to posts and thoughts about rugs and textiles.
“These regular morning sessions have been a continuing source of information and appreciation that needs to be retained and revitalized…R. John Howe’s blog is an excellent tool to broadcast these happenings to a larger audience.”, says Dennis Dodds, ICOC Secretary-General.
Both John and Charles has agreed to publish some of their interesting articles in Jozan Magazine and we are looking forward to this cooperation.
