Textile Fibre Forum

We have just subscribed to Textile Fibre Forum magazine and the latest issue will be in our library this Friday.

It will give us an insight into all that's best in Australian textile arts and will be an excellent resource. 

It's not for borrowing and has to stay in the library but make sure you have a good look through it on our meeting days.  If you do want to spend more time reading it then get your own subscription by clicking here or look for it in the newsagents.  It's a first rate publication and we really should help to support it.
