Slowly Making Changes

Hello Readers:

We are slowly making changes around here. The projects we had hoped to get off the ground have taken on different forms and priority. As of this writing, Vintage Works Zine will be shelved. It's a great idea but we're a bit short staffed at the moment so we are unable to shape the project as it was originally envisioned.

We have decided to continue Mixed Remnants. The site's layout will be revised, the offerings will be expanded, and a schedule will be established for postings. Hey, we will even include some awesome vintage from time to time.

Fiber Art Calls for Entry (FACFE) is due for a makeover. The layout shall remain clean and simple but a pop of color and a few new features will be added to keep it fresh. Many of you have opted to stay abreast of the updates to the site via our newsletter (powered by Feedblitz); we are especially excited by the growing list of followers on Twitter. FACFE is reaching its intended audience.

We encourage you to stay in touch. We would like to know what’s happening in your fiber world. In fact, next week, we will conduct a VERY BRIEF survey to gain some feedback but there is no need to wait — you should always feel free to send comments and suggestions by way of our contact form.

Before we wrap up, I want to point you in the direction of Textile Artist, Dionne Swift. She has a “debate” raging on her website regarding studio vs. online workshops. Check it out and let her know what you think.

We will be back soon.
