A mutual love of textiles is the common thread for three long-time friends and artists, Helen McIntosh, Sybil Orr and Cathy Moon who showcase their talents in a new fibre exhibition, Partners in Textile which will be a kaleidoscope of colourful artworks and jewellery at the Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre in the Noosa hinterland.

At the grand opening on Saturday 12 August from 10am to 3pm there will be artists' market stalls, meet and chat with the three artists, light lunch and refreshments from noon. Sybil Orr will give an Artist Talk on textiles and texture at 11.30am, followed by guest speaker Janet De Boer at 1pm.

Artists' stalls will include Icon Ladies, cards, tea cosies, jewellery, clothing, tableware, scarves, miniatures, fabric, woodwork, sculpture, pens, silks - buy something unique!

A free art raffle will be drawn on Opening Day with the winner receiving a piece of art by Helen McIntosh.

Brisbane-based Helen McIntosh's work is constantly evolving, exploratory and experimental, including textile-based work, mixed media paintings, mosaics, jewellery, sculptural pieces and
tapestries.

Sybil Orr is producing plant-dyed, stained and reductive-dyed fabrics, while reflecting an interest in conservation and mending fragile, found and recycled fabrics.

Cathy Moon creates unique Shibori fine-art and apparel by interpreting and adapting traditional shibori techniques on varieties of natural fibres.
