Highlights for 2013 Fibre Artist Network
The collective was established to
promote art and design with a focus
on textile and fibre, while fostering

of original art by its members. They
operate as a non-profit organisation,
so that all proceeds go directly to the
artists. The collective does not have
paid staff, which means that all local
members work as volunteers.
