About two years ago, I discovered and exhibited my textile mill photography in Greenville, South Carolina at the Textile Heritage Festival. Though I wanted to go back and exhibit again, various factors got in my way and it didn’t happen. This year, Ted and I are making plans to attend the festival but this time as visitors. When exhibiting, your time is limited to check out the other displays and visit with others who share the love of textile history. Also, Ted didn’t see anything, as he stayed with our table while I did a quick look around. This time, we’ll both get to see it.
The festival is held at the Upcountry History Museum, and includes music, song and information about life in the mill villages. The folks of the Textile Heritage Society put a lot of time and effort to keep alive the mill village culture for future generations, and have been a source for me in locating the mills for my photography. For additional information or any questions you might have, you can find them on Facebook. Can’t wait to be there!!
