CNCHnet . . . The Textile Arts Webzine of the Conference of Northern California Handweavers

Spring 2013

Judy Fisher,Editor

Even though the last few months have seemed very dark and very cold to me, I know a change is coming. The days are getting noticeably longer and the narcissus and daffodils are starting to bloom.

This issue contains a selection of ways to make your fabric sing this spring.  Judith Ashley will talk you through designing and making a nuno felted scarf, Diana Liebe will set you up to print your own design on fabric, Darlene Barr will explain her techniques of making an art quilt and Georg Palmer will show and tell how she uses collage techniques to make very individual scarves.

We also have an article extolling Lydia van Gelder.  Lydia died in December and she will certainly be missed by all who knew her, took her classes and read her books.  She has been an icon in the fiber community for decades.

CNCH 2013 is quickly approaching, too.  If you haven’t signed up, do it now.  Squaw Valley in the spring is a lovely sight.

Now is the time to take a break and read this edition of CNCHnet. Then start working on one of those projects you’ve been thinking about for awhile.

Please let me know if there are subjects and/or techniques you would like to see written about in CNCHnet and I’m always looking for authors to publish in CNCHnet!
