Geoff UrwinA tablecloth and napkin set valued at £248!? Really? If one is prepared to pay one quarter of a thousand pounds on a tablecloth (and napkins), no matter how undoubtedly beautiful, one really needs to reassess one's priorities in life. Good grief.

Sonya Clark: “I was born in Washington, DC, to a psychiatrist from Trinidad, and a nurse from Jamaica. I gained an appreciation for craft and the value of the handmade primarily from my maternal grandmother, who was a professional tailor. Many of my family members taught me the value of a well-told story, and so it is that I value the stories held in objects.”

As a featured speaker at the Present Tense conference, Sonya Clark will talk about a series of artworks and projects that invoke ancestral ties, evoke historical legacies, and address contemporary relationships through crafted materials and collaborative actions. Register to join us for it at craftcouncil.org/conference.

Stung Treng Women's Development Centre (STWD), and its income-generating program, Mekong Blue, are positively changing hundreds of lives in rural north-east Cambodia through monumental sales of its traditional ikat silk weaving and kmer style textiles.
.
Chantha Nguon, founder of STWD, is breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy by empowering, educating, and employing women in her home community. In the Stung Treng province where STWD is located, socially and environmentally damaging activities like illegal fishing, drug trafficking, and human trafficking are prevalent in this region. To change this paradigm, Chantha is creating dignified livelihoods by producing and selling high-quality folk art and empowering women to affect positive social change for themselves and for their families. She is a champion social entrepreneur, and is an inspiration to us all.
.
IFAA honors these artists for their excellence in community impact through folk art and are finalists of the 2016 IFAA Community Impact Award. This artist cooperative and social enterprise embodies what IFAA celebrates.

    Woven shibori, fresh off the loom.Last Thursday or so, another woven shibori scarf finally came off the loom.  I also found another, in a plastic bag, which had a pattern row treadling error.   The offending thread was removed, and a new plain weave row was needle-woven in.  Thank goodness for my Ott floor lamp with magnifier!  Cataracts are making themselves known and without the magnifier, I would not have been able to see well enough to replace that row.  Both were now ready for the next step in the woven shibori process.
