Exploring Fiber and Film

I don't know whether it is a good idea or not to add something else to my plate but too many things regarding fiber and film have caught my attention lately so I am feeling a need to research how and where these to things collide. This will be the place where I will post my findings. It is a method of collecting all the stuff I want to see in one place. It is my media journal. I will give it the tag, Fiber and Film so if you ever want to find and see all the items I've collected it will be right there at the touch of a button!

So keep in mind that it will be a totally random collection at first. After a time I will probably come back and try to organize it in some way. Warning: I am not a very organized thinker so dont expect too much.

This is a link to a podcast I just found today called, filmandfiber's Podcast
Another great podcast hosted by

This is a good article on photographing fiber in Fiber Arts magazine. If any of you have tried doing this you will know that it tends to be very difficult. I would suppose this is especially if you are not a trained photographer.

Oh, and please note the new change in design. Blogger is getting up to speed on a few things it seems. Also notice the important link buttons at the bottom of each post. You can mail things or link to Facebook etc! Use them, they are fun!!!

Well, I am out of time today. Hopefully, I will have some images for you next time.
