Fiber Art Now

Today I met with my exhibiting group, F.I.N.E. (Fiber in Nearly Everything) in Old Town, Alexandria at a studio in The Torpedo Factory Art Center. Our curator, Trudi Van Dyke was happy to report that she had lined up an exhibition for our new show, All Over the Map for early next year at the Keystone Art & Cultural Center  in Lancaster, PA.

Trudi also brought in a copy of the new magazine, Fiber Art Now. She wrote an article for the recent issue comparing fiber art groups on both the east and west coasts.

For those of us still mourning the slow death of FiberArts Magazine, it was great to see that the reins have been picked up. As soon as I got back home, I subscribed online. I'm looking forward to getting my first copy!


  1. It's getting better with each issue. Still...it's not FiberArts. Well, that's just my opinion. Hopefully, one issue soon, it will reach the same caliber.

    1. But remember that FiberArts had been around since the 1970s. In it's last incarnation it seemed to be getting more how-to and commercial. Have you had anymore takers for Roy?

    2. Nope to Roy. Just the 2. I have a feeling that people will join once we've posted a bit.

      And you're totally right about FiberArts. Given that Marcie...Dade, is it?...was the last editor of FA and is now the new editor at Surface Design...well, let's just say I was a bit dismayed to hear the news.

    3. Nope, didn't know about Marcie. I'm sure that SD will remain a wonderful publication...probably too much pressure for it not to.
