Anne Blinks Textile Study Collection

Tablet Weaving Papers

Papers of the Anne Blinks Textile Study Collection are available for borrowing by members of handweavers' guilds and researchers. There is a fee of $5 per item for mailing within the U.S. Outside the U.S. mailing will add an extra cost. You may request a paper via email but the fee must be received before a paper will be mailed. The loan period is one month from postal date, to be returned in the same or similar envelope. The actual monograph, offprint or photograph will not be loaned, but a photocopy of it instead. When you email your request, the response will include the address for mailing your fee and list the extra cost if the mailing is outside the U.S.
