Textile Seminars; An Important Discovery

Textile Seminar - TexWorldI will be attending TexWorld in New York next month, as I am sure many of you will.  I’m really looking forward to walking up and down the aisles taking in new innovations and trends in textiles, being introduced to mills and manufacturers I didn’t even know existed (as well as some old favorites) , and networking with fellow industry professionals.  Textile shows always seem inspire and motivate me to start my next project; fabric excites me, what can I say?  But this year, when registering for TexWorld, I realized that, based purely on my own obliviousness, I have never taken advantage of one of the major resources this show has to offer: Seminars!  Have you all seen this list?  It’s quite impressive.  It covers everything from Sourcing Solutions to Eco Marketing Trends.  So take a look at what they’re offering, register, and make a day(or two) of it.
