Hi, I'm committing to a date to do this. wOot!

    Can anyone give me a lift to this event? Can't seem to get there otherwise and I would really like to go! Thank you.

      When asking for rides, you need to specify where you live, because people arent going to blindly offer rides - they need to know if you're close to them. If you're in Boston you can take the north station train fo lowell like someone suggssted earlier, but if you live in nyc like your profile suggests, i highly doubt anyone will be willing to make that drive

      Also if you are taking the MBTA it is about a 10 minute walk (0.35 miles) from the train station to the Museum.

      Finally, I think this weekend the American Textile Museum is free with a Bank of America Credit or Debit card. Boott cotton is still $6
