From time to time we have last minute news and workshop dates that could not make it in time for the printers. Or we have REALLY exciting news, such as...from June 2012 onwards Yarn, Felt, Embellish, Vintage Made and Textile Fibre Forum (TFF has been published by ArtWear instead of TAFTA since the Nov 2011 issue) magazines will be available digitally as well as in the traditional paper format!

Here is your chance to support your local yarn store, small independent retailer, or cottage industry farm-gate seller. If you are not a current subscriber, the next best thing you can do to support Australian retailers (designers, technical and sub-editors, local artisans, manufacturers etc) is to purchase your copy of Yarn, Felt, Embellish or Textile (Fibre Forum) from one of our stockists. Please keep in mind that not all of our stockists will stock all four of our titles.
The few dollars you spend on your copy will be injected back into the economy and help provide support and encouragement for the unique, boutique craft industry that we currently sustain.
