HIGH POINT, N.C.–The Women’s Rug Round Table is launching at the upcoming High Point Market, with its first official meeting to be held on Sunday, April 6, in the Market Square Seminar Room MS-300, from 5-7 p.m.
The organization was founded so that women within the rug industry could bond, as well as raise support and awareness for women in need in the third-world countries where rugs are produced. WRRT plans to meet at each market in High Point, Atlanta and Las Vegas.
For its first meeting, which costs $20 per person to help get the organization up and running, there will be a presentation called “India: Documenting the families behind the rugs” as well as networking. For more information, visit womensrugroundtable.com or facebook.com/womensrugroundtable.
