Leah Wishnia in MRR

Couldn't resist posting here about this recent interview with Fear of Punk//Fear of Art exhibitor and comic artist/champion extraordinnaire, Leah Wishnia.  Lots of great mention of the Fear of Punk exhibition, and we are thrilled that MRR learned of her work through us-- pretty unbelieveable.

Check out more of Leah's amazing work here.  Also keep an eye out for her interview with me and School Jerks in her comics anthology Happiness this June.

Tea, Talk and Tell at Needlework

At long last, Pulling Strings' next event is on the horizon.  After an incredible month of guest blog posts about essential textile-related publications, PS is launching it's latest initiative-- a textile book reference library-- with a reading and breakfast event at Needlework.  Textile artists Grant Heaps and Kate Jackson, Hamilton-based craft producer and maker Anna Zygowski and past Director of the TMC and lovely local Jennifer Kaye will talk about their favourite textile books in a casual show-and-tell/roundtable discussion.  There will be time to peruse the brand-new reference library's rich (and growing) collection as well, and we will be serving up tasty homemade scones.  Don't miss it!
