: : : I've been following this discussion of web problems and possibilities with great interest, as my own web site is just about ready to go online. Along with its purely commercial aspects (scans of about 175 textiles for a start), I will have miscellaneous background info for beginning collectors, and a more specialized WOVEN STRUCTURES UPDATE page on which I will post feedback that I've received after publishing my guidebook. There will also be notes on structural features I've come across recently.
: : : For example, one friend brought me a rug that no one could figure out. It proved to be "needle-knotted" pile. I'll post photos and diagrams, and hope that someone will be able to give us an idea of where the mystery rug is from. I want to deal also with miscellaneous questions of technique and structure--subjects not so appropriate for these Turkotek Salons. I hope to put out occasional queries, hoping that we can each look for specific details in our rugs and then pool the information. I have no idea whether or not my idea will generate responses, but thought it would be fun to try. I'll appreciate your suggestions. I'll be www.MarlaMallett.com..... in about a week.

: : Go for it! The more information and discussion , the better. Please post the name of your site when it goes live. Marvin
: Dear Marla,
: I'm certain I can speak for the other hosts of this site when I say that we'd be enormously pleased to list your site on our Links page.
: On another note, we're always looking for people who would like to host a Salon or participate in the virtual show and tell page. Perhaps you'd consider posting your "mystery" rug here as well as on your own site.
: Good luck. I look forward to visiting.
I am a new browser of Turotek site. Your idea is great, I can help with any type of rug which was made in Afghanistan, esepcially kilims.
