MISCELLANEOUS: always has fascinating and pertinent information about "being" an artist, in addition to wonderful interviews with fibre artists, and reviews of books and materials. As we are present online so much, this is a great resource for your own personal development online :) The latest goodie is "Internet Marketing for Artists." 

Resource materials abound on several open library type sites, i'm currently in love with this one. Check out OpenLibrary, Gutenberg books or Online Books. There are also some fascinating emagazines available at ISSUU in a variety of topics and styles. (Some very startling as well!)

Thinking your doing yourself a favour by donating art, even to worthy causes?

Artist Spotlights at the Alberta Craft Council website include this month SDA member Margie Davidson and previously in August 2013, another "August" textiles artist, Matt Gould.
