Laura Thode and Sarah Goslee are proposing a new study group on archaeological textiles for Complex Weavers.

The medieval textiles study group has been defunct for many years now, and we would like to replace it with something slightly broader, and thus hopefully more likely to persist.

Here is the information from the Complex Weavers newsletter:

We are proposing a new study group to be called Archaeological Textiles, which will cover everything from textile impressions in prehistoric ceramics to relics in cathedral treasuries. This group will have an online presence, and members will submit contributions for a newsletter. If enough people are interested in a sample exchange, that can be considered as well. Dues will be based on costs for web hosting or mailing printed copies of the newsletter.

If you are interested in joining this new group, please sign up for the Google email list.
