Well, months after first thinking I should start a blog dedicated to all things fiber-ous, I’m finally getting started!

I’d like the site to be a virtual portfolio of visual references, associations and ideas, all tied loosely together under the broad category of “fiber”. Why? Because more than any other artistic medium I’m viscerally attracted to textiles. They wrap up so many things: craft, texture, tradition, artistry, innovation, warmth, etc….
