There is a new international magazine focusing on the multitude of Fiber Arts… FIBER ART NOW premiered this past Fall and will be a quarterly magazine. Subscriptions and archival reports are available at www.FiberArtNow.net
Rug Hooking was predominate in the first issue with a review of the Beyond Rugs! exhibit at the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland Maine by co-curator Mildred Cole Peladeau covering two pages and including several images of the contemporary works.
TIGHR member Liz Alpert Fay was interviewed in her studio surrounded by work in progress and completed series. The article is titled Coming of Age, Contemporary Rug Hooking Gets Its Day, by editor Marcia Young.
Knowing the medium of our choice would be featured in the magazine, the TIGHR board placed an advertisement in the first two issues. We look forward to seeing fiber enthusiasts perhaps at the Australian conference in Strathalbyn this October.
