The Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles ( a recently new establishment as of May 2012!) is putting together a symposium this November in Bangkok, so mark your calendars!

The museum is located on the grounds of the Grand Palace in Bangkok, and “collects, displays, and preserves textiles from Southeast, East, and South Asia, with an emphasis on the textile heritage of Thailand and the couture wardrobe of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.” (http://www.qsmtsymposium2013.com/index.php)

This multi-disciplinary and international symposium will feature speakers from all over the world, discussing the theme “Textiles and Dress at the Thai Court and Beyond.”

If you can’t make the symposium but will be in Bangkok before or after, you should still visit the museum, they are open to the public daily.
