there are very few mills for wovens in Canada - a few knitting mills are still here. Check the Canadian Apparel Federation's directories if the yellow pages aren't working for you.

There are some suppliers for all types of fabrics - Telio in Montreal is a popular one.

Hey when is their graduation show? Is it already over?? I will be going there sometime this month! Maybe hopefully some other event will be happening.

Here is old news...
It shows some of the 2008 graduates' work (from May)

The lady I work for told me yesterday the weaving there is really excellent So unique. But apparently their surface designers don't rival close to the ones in B.C. I think they are the ones who have access to the power knitting machines and looms, so that's why their constructed textiles are booming

Ah! This is frustrating. I completely forgot about this exposition and the deadline is today.
And if I have to go today I might miss my friend's birthday lunch.

Mm... I missed it too, if it was showing
I was staying downtown and came on the weekend... We left for Toronto Sunday afternoon.
I don't know if the school would have been opened during those times

Finding a Job as a Textile Designer in Fashion
I'll be graduating from university soon, so I have started to look into future jobs. I want to design printed or woven textiles for fashion.

It seems so much harder to find textile design jobs for fashion rather than home furnishing. I look at craigslist (for a couple different cities), 24/7, plenty of other job sites. But most of the jobs I find on these sites are fashion/accessory design.

I know that in the industry alot of it is having the connections in order to get the job, but what if you don't have those connections? How do you find these jobs?
