This holiday season MIDA will be decorating each of the seven coaches of the train for MNGRR’s annual event – THE POLAR EXPRESS™.  MIDA’s design intent is to transport passengers to scenes from THE POLAR EXPRESS™ movie and book. The sound of bells ringing, aroma of hot chocolate, glistening golden tickets, a voice calling, ‘All Aboard’, lights of color dancing across the sky, wrapped gifts embellished with ribbons and the sense of something greater to believe are elements significant to recreate the places and emotional connections. The coaches will be decorated in holiday décor from vividly brilliant fabrics to hand-made ornament bouquets to golden bells ringing along the rails. All the details will work together to create a celebration for those who truly believe.

Supporting MIDA to create each of the seven designs are our sponsors and contributors who we received wholehearted interest from.  Special thank you to each of them for making this event a reality.

Suzanne Tick currently heads up Suzanne Tick Inc., specializing in material development for commercial and residential interiors, including textiles, hard surfacing, carpet, woven metal screens, and lighting. Her clients include KnollTextiles, with whom she has worked since 1995 and where she is currently responsible for a majority of the vertical fabrics produced every year. In 2000, Suzanne invented a new breed of hard surfacing for KnollTextiles called Imago. It was the first time that fabric had been embedded in a high performance resin, effectively extending the range of textiles into the building materials market, and launching an entirely new material product category.

Suzanne Tick and her work/life partner Terry Mowers formed Tuva Looms Inc. in 1996. This award winning company specializes in a sophisticated collection of woven carpet for the architectural and design community.

MIDA will have the honor of hosting Suzanne Tick at a member breakfast event sponsored by Tandus on Friday, April 23rdfrom 7:30 – 9 AM.
