A Little Peak @ TexWorld USA

Ignoring the dreary, sticky, humid weather today I headed, on foot, to the Javitz Center to check out TexWorld, that much anticipated textile show in New York.  I spent a few hours wandering around, frantically taking notes, and soaking up all the show had to offer. I have quite a few opinions to share, because I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t sharing my opinions, but not in this post. I need to wrap my brain around the conversations I had, the people I met, and the impressions I got. So until I’m ready to do that, which will be soon, I promise, I just want to leave you with a few images from today. I look forward to following up soon and, if you haven’t gone yet yourself, you still have one more day, so get to it!
