The United States Institute for Theater Technology (USITT) has nominated Connie Amaden-Crawford’s book, The Art of Fashion Draping, 4th Edition, for the prestigious 2013 Golden Pen Award. From all of us on the Seattle International Textile Expo team we would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Connie. We were honored to have Connie presenting her Spring 2013 Trend Forecast before, and are even more so with this exciting news.
From the Chair of the Award Committee:
“This award, given annually, recognizes the author of an outstanding major publication in the field of design and production for the performing arts published within the previous three years. Nominations originate from members of USITT, and winners are chosen by a vote from the Publications committee. As outlined in our guidelines, review of nominated books occurs throughout the year with a winner chosen in October. . .
You will be notified of the results after the Fall board meeting which takes place in Oct or Nov of each year. The Award recipient is invited, as a guest of USITT, to the Annual Awards banquet, along with a complimentary registration to the annual conference where a book signing is generally scheduled.”
Please be sure to convey your congratulations to Connie when you see her at our September 10th reception event. It’s an honor to have such a distinguished industry professional residing in the Greater Seattle area.
