I've had the pleasure of becoming a member of HandEye Magazine, edited by Keith Recker.
Rachel Biel of TAFA list sent out a blurb on it... so I click on and am blown away by the articles that cover so many different ideas, history, techniques--permuations of thought that stretch your imagination. Thank you Keith for bringing this to us!
All textile addicts, please go to HandEye now! You will not be disappointed. It's a new way of life, a new beginning for yourself and our planet. If you enjoy Selvedge, you will love HandEye.
An example of how valuable the articles are--Michele Wipplinger of Earthues shares her secrets of dyeing with indigo. I studied with Michele for 10 years.... this is a fantastic article, brought to you by HandEye.
Energy and excitement from discovering talented, caring humans... just got to keep myself plowed with energy drinks so that I can keep focusing on actually DOING something versus thinking about new ways to do things.
Couldn't resist sharing some of the NUNO fabrics that I have collected over the years...see the lead story of Handeye. There is an exhibit of their fabrics at The Textile Museum in Washington, DC.
