excuse me?

shortly after registering my attendance at the Watermarks Paper conference this evening i was slightly stunned to see this


on pp 42 of CAN Journal, Cleveland.

for the record
i am not an employee of the University of South Australia [nor do i receive or desire any financial support from them]

and i would not describe myself [professionally] as a blogger

i maintain a blog principally for the benefit of past [and future] students and friends who want to keep up with developments without having to exchange emails

presently my income is derived from teaching, writing [books and magazine articles], costume design, exhibition work and  commissions. while that may change, professional blogging is not on the bucket list.

    2. dear Linda

      i would have replied privately but your email was not available. Procion dyes are toxic and to me incompatible with the philosophy of ecologically sustainable dyeing.

      warmly

  3. This reporter definitely didn't do their homework and in the meantime, made a tremendous snafu. We all know you are our rock star. Thank you for a wonderful workshop and I am coveting my beautiful book that came from these past two days.
