The Fibre Spectrum
Today I visited The Fibre Spectrum, a co-operative of fibre aritsts from the area. I was amazed at the beautiful works on display and for sale. There was a huge variety of crafts to see, from painting, weaving, knitting, crochet, felting, and so much more. I particularly liked the felting works of Mary Andrews and the patchwork of Karen Brodersby. (Sadly no website). A very simple design, easily machine quilted by Karen caught my eye - do take a look and be inspired.

Mary's felting was also very inspiring and she had many articles on display and for sale. She is a local artist who specialises in felting and weaving and also gives tuition at her Spiral Studio in town. Do take a look at her website. I think I may have to give felting another try!
Felting and fibre arts have come a long way in terms of colours and designs and now have a very contemporary feel. Another interesting craft to pursue!
