!cid_5D6618A3-289A-43D6-AA78-1F342A1A140E@lan.jpgVariety is the spice of life - as we compile the content of your Journal, members of the Editorial Committee seek to encourage exploration beyond conventional practices and traditions. Turn to page 32 for Jennie Parry's exquisite woven paper yarn suspended sculptures and page 41 for Electronics in Textiles and Clothing, a new cutting edge book explaining how science and art can be blended.   

In our regular feature articles, Janet Phillips provides practical advice on Cloth Finishing, while Debbie Bamford explains the fascinating history of Turkey Red. Ideas for collaborative guild study groups will be inspired by the Cambridgeshire Guild's Peruvian Textile Study Group. Berry Cutler's achievements show that our younger guild members are taking delight in producing wearable textiles - turn to our Correspondence pages for some more ideas. Explore the different effects at the fingertips of weavers who also spin and dye their own fibres. Or sit back to read a fascinating account of traditional textile production on the Outer Hebrides.
