Jim Akins of the Scottish Tartans Museum and Heritage Center in Franklin, NC, will speak on tartan, color terms, tartan history and fake tartans. He will also explain why clan tartans don't date “to the mists of time” as many clans claim but to around 1822. The Museum was founded in 1988 to be a reliable resource on tartans, Scottish dress and heritage in the United States as well as Canada. One of the founding purposes of the Tartan Museum is to dispel myths about tartans, which is a constant battle as these myths have been repeated for generations. Jim has served as president of the board of directors and as general manager of the gift shop at the Tartan Museum for 10 years.
