The Textile Society of America

The 2020 Textile Society of America 17th Biennial Symposium, Hidden Stories/Human Lives, will be held at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts from October 14-18.

As part of the symposium, the TSA invites vendors to sell their wearable art and accessories, textiles, textile construction tools and other materials, books, one of a kind art works and other textile related items at the juried marketplace. We are seeking a broad range of makers and suppliers who will exhibit works of superior creativity and quality in craftsmanship and aesthetics, both contemporary and traditional. Jurors will select work that reflects a diverse, interesting and relevant marketplace. The 2020 TSA Marketplace will have exposure to over 400 registered delegates to the conference, and through publicity to other Boston tourists and the local public.
