The five programs, available on CD-ROM, are funded in part by the Importer Support Program of the Cotton Board.

The first two programs, The Art of Knitting and The Science of Dyeing and Finishing, are now available. The Art of Weaving, Color Science and The Art of Printing will be introduced later this year and in early 2004.In other news, Cotton Incorporated and the Washington-based Cotton Council International (CCI) joined forces to sponsor Cotton Days, a week of celebrations in Osaka, Japan; Seoul, South Korea; and Taipei, Taiwan, designed to promote US cotton and Cotton USA licensee textile products in Asia.The event first took place in 1995 in Japan with support from the Japan Spinners Association.
