  1. So we need all the information you can give us re your fibre arts practice . Tell us who you are, what and what with you make. Its size , medium and when. All this will serve as a resource base for us.

  2. In Kojunup, the wheat belt herein WA , there is a project running to save the phascogale, a tiny mammal almost extinct. The project supplies nesting boxes for these tiny animals.. Inside the box is a manmade nest using alpaca wool. The smell of the wool does not disturb the phascogale , two tiny babies have recently been born in a alpaca nest…..now thats a basket of a different sort but quite valid.
