For over a decade, John Howe has documented the museum’s Rug and Textile Appreciation Morning programs through the blog Textiles and Text. This July, the museum is unveiling his complete, illustrated archive as a permanent digital resource and as a set of bound volumes in the Arthur D. Jenkins Library.
