Australia's biggest Art Cloth Swap

Australia's biggest Art Cloth Swap is to be hosted by ArtWear Publications, in conjunction with the Textile Art Festival in Brisbane.

Here's how it works:  decorate a 70cm square of silk and send it with your details to the girls at Embellish magazine - including a brief description about what you have done with the cloth and a stamped, self-addressed envelope for the return of a different piece of decorated silk the same size. Your Art Cloth and description will be displayed at the Textile Art Festival, to be held June 11-13, 2011.
After the event, you will be sent a silk piece created by someone else - so that everyone who enters receives a surprise piece of Art Cloth from a total stranger. The swap is meant to be fun, challenging and a great way to gain publicity, while showcasing the diversity and creativity of Art Cloth enthusiasts.

What better way to enhance your silk collection and exhibit your skills at the same time? Email for the entry form and sign-on details. 
The Festival will feature specialist textile art retailers, great displays, artists at work to watch and learn from, and workshops to join.  Visit for more details.
And this year - it runs alongside the Scrapbook Expo and one ticket gets you in to both events! Brisbane is the place to b e if you love textile art or papercraft.
