Yesterday, we had a meeting in the Textile Museum Associates of Southern California TMA/SC (TMASC) in Los Angeles. The speaker was Peter Pap, a well known Oriental carpet expert who lives and works in San Fransisco. He had brought many old and antique pieces of Caucasian Rugs, Turkish Anatolian Rugs, and Persian Rugs. He talked about each single piece of these one of a kind rugs. We enjoyed a lot and the attendance was very good. It was fun, educational and informative.
We have a "Show and Tell" section at the end of the lecture. Several members had brought their antique and old rugs and kilims to show to the speaker and the members. Peter pap commented on each piece and the owner of each piece added few words and comments.
