CNCHNET The Conference of Northern California Handweavers (CNCH) has been publishing a quarterly on-line magazine for by and about textile arts and artists since mid- 2010. CNCHnet, The Textile Arts Webzine of the Conference of Northern California Handweavers, was originally conceived as a way to celebrate the art and the artists who are members of CNCH and to promote community and communication within and between the twenty-nine Guilds under the CNCH umbrella. It is now time to expand that vision and reach out to the greater community of Textile Artists. We are sending you a link to CNCHnet. http://www.cnch.org/cnchnet/ and we invite you to share your ideas and articles with this project.
