Textile Trail Conference in LaGrange, April 2014
The West Georgia Textile Heritage Trail Annual Conference was held Thursday and Friday, April 17-18, 2014, at the beautiful Hills and Dales Estate in LaGrange, Georgia. We learned creative ways to preserve and promote textile history areas while enjoying the locale’s blossoming gardens and unique connection to Georgia’s textile heritage. The conference featured speakers and workshops on a variety of topics, all designed to help highlight ties to history of textile production and use that history to attract visitors who will also enjoy the shopping, dining, and hospitality each community has to offer.
Thanks to everyone who came to our 2014 WGTHT Conference!
We had a wonderful time, and such a great turnout! Here is what some of our attendees had to say about their experience:
(Regarding Bruce Green’s Keynote) “Practical advice mixed with inspirational ideas!”
“The cost is extremely reasonable! Thanks for keeping it affordable! The modern textile factory tour is a great option (and free!)”
“Networking was one of the most valuable parts of this conference!”
“I’ve been provided with an almost overwhelming list of resources!”
As you can see, our attendees were very impressed with our conference!
