Way back in October, I wrote about joining Surface Design and subscribing to Fiber Art Now. Today I made a rare trip to the post office to pick up my mail. Rare because there’s usually an empty box once I peer in. Today was a bonanza. I first issue of the Surface Design Journal awaited me, along with a sale catalog from Dick Blick. Well, as the saying goes, they had me with the cover. This is by Anne Wilson, called Walking the Warp, a performance with the Hope Stone Dance Ensemble. I haven’t read this article or any others yet. I think the first article that will get read an article called Painting in the Round about Elizabeth Whyte Schulze. This is a link to the artist’s page with the pieces in the article. I love these! By the way, the surface design organization sends out a nice email newsletter several times in between issues of the journal.
Arriving a week or so ago was the winter issue of Fiber Art Now. Above is the Table of Contents from that issue. There’s a nice couple of pages on tapestry weaver Linda Wallace. I like Fiber Art Now because all kinds of fiber art is included, from rug hooking to weaving to well, just about any kind of fiber art.
With the stringent weaving schedule I’ve set for myself and the organizing that continues, I don’t seem to have time to read much lately, but I can look at the pictures!
