For those of you who haven't already registered for the next Math Encounters presentation, we are happy to announce that Susan Goldstine will be presenting "The Fabric of Symmetry: Connecting Mathematics and Fiber Arts" on Wednesday, February 7.

About the talk: What do knitting, embroidery, and beadwork tell us about symmetry?  What does symmetry tell us about design in textiles?  Join us in an exploration of contemporary mathematical fiber arts with Susan Goldstine, Professor of Mathematics at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and Associate Editor of the Journal of Mathematics and the Arts.  Special introduction by Robert P. Crease, Chair of the Department of Philosophy, Stony Brook University.
