92nd Meeting of Teppichfreunde

3rdJune 2018

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear Teppichfreunde,

My invitation to the upcoming meeting on 3rd June 2018 comes somewhat late. Holidays and putting together the next programme have delayed sending the invitation. Sudden cold weather has for the first time countermanded our programme. Wolfgang Windau from Emmendingen was hindered from leaving his home town by ice and snow on the Autobahn highway. Achim Boldt has had flu. Ulla Ther from Munich however had come with many show pieces of Anatolian dowry textiles and illustrated her talk by many images. I myself stepped in and helped out by presenting my oral presentation at the international symposium last October at Baku of particularly fine sumakh Khordjin from Azerbaijan and their interrelated designs. Participants at the March meeting were fewer than usual (more than 30) because of weather conditions.

May I now invite you to the

92nd Meeting of Rug and Carpet Friends of Northern Germany
Sunday 3rd June 2018
Bürgerhaus Bissendorf, Am Markt 1
