What a year this has turned out to be for everyone.
It has certainly tested the resolve of your team here. The closedown came at virtually the same time we received delivery of our eighth issue from the printer. We took the inevitable decision to delay issue nine until there was more certainty in the community.
Fortunately, Western Australia has fared better than most states in terms of the outbreak, but shutdown has affected the community in the same way.
We trust that you, the Fabric Quarterly community, have been able to stay safe.
In this issue we are excited to introduce some new writers. The content for our ninth issue is as strong as—or better than—ever.
A must-read is the delightfully written story on the artist Sonia Kurarra, a Walmajarri woman in Fitzroy Crossing.
The glossy leaves follow the burgeoning career of Bradley Pinkerton, a Melbourne-based graphic designer who hails from Perth. His list of clients reads like the proverbial Who’s Who.
In the spirit of supporting local enterprises as they brace the impact of border closures, we are developing a listing at the back of the magazine to draw attention to great places to experience the excitement of WA. This will be continually expanded as we go forward.
We here at FQ wish all a Merry Christmas and a healthy happy and prosperous 2021
