Hi, lovely readers - sorry I haven't been posting - this blog, and me personally, became the target of an ugly hate thread on a big fiber arts community forum a few weeks ago, and it put me off posting for a bit. I'm fine, though disappointed that anyone in the fiber arts community (and some very well-known textile artists) would be so destructive, misinformed, ugly, vitriolic, and hateful. I guess it's the way of the world these days. I'm not sure how much to say about it -- for now, know that I appreciate everyone who comes to this blog and enjoys what they read, or at least finds it provocative or interesting (I didn't love the hundreds of vultures who came just to attack and rubberneck and stalk and slander, but they seem to be gone for the most part).
I believe that most people who work with textiles have tremendous integrity and are generally wonderful people, and I'll continue to believe that and focus on that. I hope you've all had a wonderful, creative summer, and that all is well. More soon!
