The Seventh Biennial Symposium of the Textile Society of America was held September 19-23, 2000 at the La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The TSA 2000 Symposium theme, Approaching Textiles, Varying Viewpoints reflected members’ interests in textiles as fascinating objects that draw our attention and reflect their cultural, geographic, and temporal settings. Varying Viewpoints emphasized the ways in which scholars and artists investigate textiles through many different methods and theories. Indeed, the 2000 Symposium showcased a wide range of professional approaches from the perspectives of artists, art historians, anthropologists, conservators, entrepreneurs, historians, and many others. Viewpoints invited exploration of differing cultural perspectives. Several panels include indigenous scholars and textile producers/users from around the world.
