Hi

Tremendous exhibition !! I'd especially like to congratulate the photographer - the images are sensational.

For me the highlight is Bag # 14.

Thanks for sharing them.

Best regards.

Thanks and congratulations to Mark, Mike and your NERS colleagues -- a big job well done. It is exciting to find the well written, well vetted and easily navigated exhibition when I should be continuing a work-related search. See you at ACOR, Seattle.

Congratulations. Where else can you see no less than 6 beautiful, well drawn and mostly complete Anatolian sacks in one place outside of Istanbul? And the Lori khorjin, #33. Very nice exhibition. More please.

With thanks, Michael Wendorf

The pieces are a great pleasure to see. As a Turkoman collector, I particularly liked #35.

As a collector primarily interested in bags and utilitarian pieces, your show has certainly reconfirmed what I have always felt about these "jewel" like weavings, that they have great universal appeal and deserve special attention in the world of rug collecting! Congrats on a fine exhibit!

I was, again, genuinely impressed with the NERS on-line exhibit. I think this format works so well and makes these beautiful pieces accessible to so many who may not otherwise get to view them. I am already looking forward to the next exhibit.

Just got to add that I loved that little sheath cover also and how about that Yomud felt piece #36!

Congratulations to all! We appreciate the long hours and energy of those who participated in its creation. We particulary like the scissor sheath bag. It is the best we've seen.

This is a superb achievement. The quality of the images, the pieces themselves, and the ease of navigation sets a standard. The in-depth technical analyses are impressive.

You have made a valuable contribution to the rug world. I am proud to be a member of this society.

Mighty effort and outstanding results. Congratulations to all involved. Particularly loved #11 Central Medallion Pile Khorjin; #14 diamond field flat weave; #42 Lakai cross stitch; #25 Warp-patterned khorjin; and #32b Baktiari pile bag. I printed it all out on a color printer - the layout and content would make a superb book - even loose leaf would be OK. Do it. This should be recorded in print.

Dear Mark & Co.> BRAVO! A great peek into a variety of goodie bags; enjoyed & will return many times. Congrats on a first class presentation! Also quite enlightening to read commentary by JBS, (I'd like to meet with him sometime) on the Central Asian and Lakai pieces... hope to see you all soon.
