Madeleine is the co-editor of the Canadian Tapestry Network newsletter. Recently she moved back to Ontario from British Columbia. She writes: "Joe Lewis wrote a nice article about in his fibreQuarterly blog. You can click on the link below to see it.

Agota Dolinay created these shapes. She says " There is some Canadian summer woven into these little shapes....sunshine, dragonfly buzzes, loon calls and the scents of the river....I wove them at the cottage this  one sunny day on a tiny loon I made from scraps of wood lying around, waiting to be sued for something lovely. The yarn was leftover from my rabbit tapestry series which are presently at the cottage." Agota will be going to Peru through Puchka Tours and will study tapestry weaving with Maximo Laura.
