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.

VISIT NOOSA

Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!

The Global Goddess

Some days you just have to let the world come to you. I was recently back in beautiful Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. I’ve been up there a lot lately, more by default than design, and what’s really cool is that every time I’m there, I discover a host of new things. On this trip, I stumbled across some cool international experiences in which you can indulge. Here are five of my favourites.
