This month NOBO will meet at the Newburyport Public Library on State Street. The Social time will be from 6-6:30pm and the Business portion will be from 6:30-7:15pm. Refreshments will be served.
Our program will be a slide presentation, by Abbey Franquemont, featuring, The Preservation of Textiles in the Andes: A retrospective on more than three decades of change in the Cusco area of Peru, what change has meant for indigenous people, and how it’s affected textile production. Brief history of textiles in the Inca world, followed by Peru’s colonial years, the 20th century, and the present day. A question and answer period will follow.
Show and Share will be at the end if there is time.
Looking forward to a great meeting!
See you there!
