Bring it on.....
Just when I thought that 2021 was going to be my year of retirement… well that turned itself on its head, didn’t it… instead I refocused on bringing Fibre Arts Australia back to life with new website, new commentary on all thing’s fibre/textile related and to bring on board a young vibrant team to help move what we do, into a new stratosphere!
Although we had to cancel the July and September events it did not stop you from wanting more to sink your needle into, more of what was going on and with the blogs and the Studio Spaces making a huge hit… in fact more than 50,000 hits… it just goes to prove that you wanted more of what is going on out there!
Something worth saying repeatedly is this: we are more than grateful you stayed with us throughout it all.
Our face-to-face workshops will continue to be our focus. Learning from the best in the world is the best way to bring more excitement into your work!
Hands on and asking questions to the tutor in a workshop is a much-preferred way of learning.
Trying to earn a living as an events coordinator/artist has been harder than ever for many of us over the last 2 years, but in saying that, these years have ‘cemented’ the bond between our Fibre Arts Tribe, just proving that being connected keeps us all on the same artistic path.
It makes the Fibre Arts Team happy to know our hard work translates into a year of bringing amazing tutors to the events in 2022 and extending our knowledge to encourage you to be who you are as an artist.
We wish you a happy, fruitful, and fulfilling New Year!
May 2022 be full of amazing things for you and those around you!
May it be the best year yet!
Happy New Year!!
Belinda, Ginnie, Zoe, Tessa, Kay, and Serena

Dear Glenys, my heartfelt thanks to you for putting your retirement on hold to keep Fibre Arts going, and particularly the Fibre Art events. I can imagine how close Fibre Arts is to your heart but there must have been a sinking feeling when you had to decide between it and your retirement.

Yeah. Go you!!!!!!!

My very, very good wishes to you, Glenys and the Team for a successful and fulfilling 2022. We live in strange times where we don't know what is going to be thrown at us from week to week.

Thank you so much for enriching our lives! Today's issue was particularly moving and really beautiful.

May 2022 be an absolute smasher of a year for Fibre arts Australia! Glenys, you are amazing, your positive power, and energy are just the best. Please wish the whole wonderful team a fabulous NY, I'm looking forward to teaching at the Ballarat event in July 2022.

Happy New Year wishes and blessings back at all of you! I was reflecting today that while Covid has brought out the worst in so much, it has also offered many of us a chance to seek internal quiet, reflect and appreciate the blessings that we have in our lives. It certainly has created far more online tribes - and things like your Studio Spaces links us across km and media genres. It might be a different Fibre Arts tribe and forum from what was anticipated - but oh, the richness, the links, the inspirations! Well done to all of you and may 2022 bring us all peace, happiness and many creative moments. Stay safe.

Happy New Year from Canada: I have been really enjoying your studio series: have spent part of this holiday week tackling the rearrangement of my studio which is the top floor of our big old house, overlooking the snow, the lake and the creek. It can be pretty chilly in the winter (now) and too hot in mid-summer, but it's my favourite place.

I always love seeing something from fibrearts in my inbox - thankyou Glenys and all your team for keeping us up to date and inspired through the newsletters and the workshops, which to date I've never been able to attend, but one day ....

I do wish I was 20 years younger, but as I am not, all the best in 2022 and I will join in when I can. Love all you do. The mind is still alive but the body s failing I am afraid. Love xx

What a challenge these past 2 years have been. I am thankful that we has a craft we can focus on when locked down. I did Tara Axfords class at Ballarat Grammar in 2020 and it was a life saver. Hope more people access these events.
