I started Fiber Focus as an attempt to address cultural issues through art. My personal interest lies in finding common ground among people from many different cultural and religious backgrounds and in looking at contemporary craft production as a means of economic development. I also want the blog to reflect many other voices besides my own and have invited fiber artists, designers and sellers to write about their work. This has kept the blogging experience interesting to me. I've had guests from other countries and peer sellers on Etsy come on. Four guests contribute regularly, a California quilter, a Wisconsin knitter and two Etsy sellers, one living in Turkey and the other in Guatemala. I would like to have more. Take a look at the blog and if you are interested in submitting articles, please do contact me. I've been pleased with how diverse it has become and envision it continuing to grow in that direction.
