Until recently I liked to indulge in the slightly subversive activity of visiting a branch of Borders and taking magazines up to read in Starbucks . Only now I can't because I visited one store where they put a sign up saying, "In order to help us keep our store tidy please only take a maximum of five magazines into Starbucks'. So now it appears it is not at all subversive. Ah well. I still do it.
Here are some web links I discovered during my browsing yesterday.
Upfront - see their altered bras. Two members of this textile group with their own websites are: Corrine Phillips and Gilly Mound
From one of those sites I found a link to textile artists Jo Dewar
Fiberart Wales has artist pages with lots of images from artists working with fibre in many different ways.
The Beetroot Tree looks like a place I will have to try to visit.
