Two weeks ago I drove up to Cambridge for the opening of Selections from the Fibre Art Collection at Design at Riverside, 7 Melville St. S, which will run until February 25. This exhibition is just as it says a selection, a selection that has been building over the years with the purchase of work that was elected for their biannual Fibreworks exhibition. This collection can bee seen on-line at there website and is just one of the numerous textile and textile arts collection that is now available at a click as you explore the world wide web. There will be about this amazing (there is no better word for it) phenomena in the up coming issue of fibreQUARTERLY in the new improved velvethighway website at the end of February.

In the meantime I recommend the drive or click to Cambridge Galleries to
