The deadline for those previously mentioned student scholarships for The Textile Museum's 40th annual fall symposium, Ottoman by Design: Branding an Empire, is fast approaching -- August 31, 2012.
D.C. public school educators may apply for scholarships, too, and have a bit more time. Details on that here. Also, if you're a textile enthusiast thinking about attending the three-day event, early discounted registration will be available online through August 15.
