Hi Everyone,

Happy Canada Day!
This spring has been another busy one for me. I have left London and have moved to the small city of Chichester, UK which is located on the south coast of England. Chichester is famous for its cathedral spire which towers over the landscape.

Chichester
has quite a nice fabric and knitting store that is filled with lovely knitting yarns, sewing fabrics, needles and notions.

C and H Fabrics

There is also another sewing store that specializes in its own unique designs and patterns and is located just down the street from where I live.

On my loom:
My loom is now unpacked and dressed again – this time with a hemp warp for making a Rya tapestry.

I am also busily working away at updating the Allfiberarts website to WordPress. Many links still need to be checked as old pages are being converted to the new format.

There is a new Events Calendar where you can add your upcoming Fiber Events.
