by R. John Howe

We are experimenting with a new format here. Our intention is to present reports on the goings-on at ACOR, more or less as they occur, through reports from attendees. In an effort to achieve something resembling a coherent organization, it is divided into sections, listed chronologically, each linked through this page.

1: The first 24 hours or so

2: The Dealer's Reception

3: Dealer's Reception (continued); Day 2

4. Daniel Walker's Plenary Section Talk on the Future of the Textile Museum

5. Saturday (continued)

6. Sunday

7. Additions made after the Conference
