I am passing along this invitation to a celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Textile Museum of Canada. Len and I will unfortunately not be able to attend as, at that time, we will be leaving for Bangladesh to continue work on the documentary film Threads. Please feel free to pass this along to others you think may find it of interest.
As I think back on the Museum’s 35 years, it was there in the gift shop that I first heard of Surayia Rahman before Len and I moved to live in Bangladesh, and we are now producing a film about Surayia’s remarkable art and life. Who would have predicted? The 35th also brings back memories of my former roommate (also named Cathy) who involved me in fundraising for construction of the new Textile Museum, and who opened my eyes to textiles.
Thanks so much to all of you for your support in my textile journeys and now with the documentary.
