Rheinfelden, November, 2001

Dear members,
This letter is sent by e-mail and on paper as well. Next year I would like to change to e-mail for all members who have an e-mail adress. I shall also try to send news to you more frequent
I am glad, to have found also for this present Newsletter conservators and interested people who help me with news and contributions. Many thanks to: Birgitt Borkopp, Marie-Jo de Chaignon, Danièle Denise, Tatiana Kossourova, Charlotte Paludan, Noemi Tarrant, Evelin Wetter. Mme J. Guilloit contributes with some comments to earlier letters. Thank you very much also for advices and information of new books and exhibitions.
In Lyons at the Cieta-conference the embroidery group only had a very short meeting. Members are interested to continue with the vocabulary project, but more discussion is needed. It would be good to arrange an extra meeting, for instance next summer in Paris, at the exhibition "Les Arts Décoratifs au temps de Louis XIII (1600 to 1660)" in Paris in Plain Palais, from April to July 2002.

I propose a meeting there on the weekend 8th/ 9th of June 2002. Please let me know your opinion.

Please continue to inform me about chalice veils, textile exhibitions, books, courses and conferences.

Best wishes yours
Anne Wanner-JeanRichard,

In Lyon we decided to look at the drawings of stitches as published on the homepage. These stitches published by G. Christie will serve as a basis for our work.
- should we have more or different kinds of stitches?
- please give your comments on special groups of stitches in your country, and also about your own research experience.
