Informational Meeting Recap

The State of Denim Project committee would like to thank all of those who came out to our first interest meeting on Tuesday, January 20, 2015. For those who were unable to attend this meeting, you still have the opportunity to receive the information that was covered in this meeting by clicking the sign up tab and fill out the interest form to be added to our moodle site. The moodle site will provide you with additional information about the project as well as videos of past meetings that you are welcome to view if you were unable to attend.

IMPORTANT TO DATE: This coming Friday, January 23, 2015 will be the initial day to sign-up for our two field trips to be held this semester. There will be limited availability for attendance of these trips so sign-up will be on a first-come first-served basis. Waiting lists will be provided. The Cotton, Inc. tour will be held on Monday, February 23, 2015 from 9:30am – 1:45pm. This is a FREE trip. However, you still need to sign up to reserve a slot. You will also need to provide your own transportation as this is a local trip. The second tour will be held March 26-27, 2015. This is an overnight trip where we will be visiting three mills (Parkdale, Cone and VF Jeanswear). The cost of this trip is $35.00 which includes university provided transportation and room fees. Food is not included in the cost.

Sign-up for these two trips will open up on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 9a.m. Please click the Field Trip tab for instructions on how to sign-up for these trips. If you have any questions regarding these events or any other part of the project, please feel free to contact us by email at

We hope to see you soon!
