Tarzana, CA. January 3, 2011. Join Outdoor Retailer and the FabricLink Network for the Textile Community Mixer at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. This popular networking event provides manufacturers, designers and suppliers with the opportunity to make new contacts and explore new business opportunities to create the innovative product developments needed to drive the outdoor market. The event will be held in the show's Design Center on Friday, January 21st.

The Design Center, also sponsored by Outdoor Retailer and the FabricLink Network, is where visiting attendees and exhibitors can see a broad display of fabrics, trim and zipper samples from supplier exhibitors. Designers and manufacturers can browse the Design Center for inspiration and find the latest product developments and component materials currently available in the market.

“The OR show is an intense and demanding time for buyers and sellers alike, with minimal time available to network.” explains Kathy Swantko, founder of FabricLink.com Network. “That's why, this Networking and Beer event is so popular. It's held at the end of the 2nd day, when everyone can find time to drop by for a beer and chat.”

There is also an added incentive to attend the Textile Community Mixer—the “Come and Get Outfitted” contest and drawing. This season the Textile Community Mixer is supported by several companies, who have generously donated items for the “Come and Get Outfitted” raffle. These businesses include: Chaos, Concept III, Cordura® Fabric, DuPont, Gramicci, Hyperbola®, Kingwhale, The North Face®, PORON®, Rogers Corporation, and Teflon®.

The Textile Community Mixer also provides an opportunity to see top student designers from major design schools across the county preparing their original outerwear prototypes for the Project OR competition. The Project OR competition is located next to the Design Center.

Come and join in on all the fun! Networking, Beer and Getting Outfitted! It doesn't get much better than that!!
