I am glad to see a magazine like this, as I consider myself a fiber artist rather than a quilter.. Looking forward to seeing your premier issue.
thank you – i am standing by!
If Phillippa is subscribing, then I will. I hope it is worth the investment!
You’re going to love it, but if you don’t, let us know and we’ll refund your investment. We want happy fiber lovers!
Geez, I waited until January so I could send a gift subscription online, however, I see no mechanism for sending a gift
Sorry for the inconvenience, SL Bentley. We'll email you directly to handle the gift subscription. Thanks!
I was very upset that Interweave Publications dropped their Magazine Fiberarts. I am a Fiber artist and do not want “recipies” I want news about quality work and artists. I am very hopeful that Fiberartnow will fill this void. Thank you
Thanks for your note, Elisabeth. Yes, it was sad to see Fiberarts Magazine go. If you click on the Subscribe button here, you can download a sample of the current issue, to help you learn about Fiber Art Now, and the kinds of stories we’ll be bringing to readers.
thank you for this magazine…as a felter (paper and wool), there is so little out there for me…i wasn’t happy to lose fiberarts magazine, either…i want to keep in touch with creative people of like mind, but it is very difficult in this small rural area…best wishes to you…glad to subscribe
Thank you for subscribing! We hope you’ll find inspiration and connection with other fiber artists through Fiber Art Now.
Just subscribed to your publication. I enjoy all types of fiberart. Looking forward to more inspiration.
Welcome to the community!
Glad to have you aboard!
Recently had the opportunity to browse through the current issue and am very excited about this new magazine. Great breadth and depth–thanks, Marcia Young!
Just wondering if my subscription is coming toward renewal? Cheerio!
Joan, We’ll send out either emails or post cards about renewal, probably later this summer. Thanks for checking!
Wonderful – standing by; thanks!!!
Do you have distribution at any Canadian book or magazine stores? I checked your subscription rates, and a $25 extra charge for shipping 4 issues to Canada is really high! This stopped me from subscribing at this point, but I would very much like to be able to see an issue.
Carol, Let me just say that I feel your pain. The extra charge for ‘international’ mailing actually doesn’t even cover our own mailing costs, but we’re committed to fostering an international community, so we split the difference. It’s a harsh reality of worldwide mailing costs. But please take heart-we’re working on an online version, and we’re expanding retail sales. Now is the time to let us know where in Canada it would be most effective to be placed. Please share, and we’ll contact them, send them a sample, and try to get you set up with a local source!
Thanks for your quick response! I live in Toronto, and buy my arts magazines at Indigo and Chapters (two different names, but the same company) — Canada’s Barnes and Nobel. They stock fine art as well as crafting magazines, European, Australian, American, Canadian, even Japanese, and are a nationwide chain. I know several of the other magazines I subscribe to (Handwoven, Spin-off, Interweave Knits) or used to subscribe to (Quilting Arts, the now defunct FiberArts) offer a Canadian postage rate that is more than their domestic rate, but less than shipping elsewhere in the world.
An on-line edition would be great — but I love the look and feel of the “real thing” in my hands! Best of luck!
Sorry, it’s me again – having read the correspondence above and with postage being so expensive, I will wait for a downloadable version of the magazine. What a shame. Will you let me know if and when you plan to produce one please?
Ingrid, Thanks for reaching out again. We’re working on an electronic version, and it will likely be rolled out in the fall or winter issue. In the meantime, you also can purchase it at Maiwa in Vancouver. Please call ahead to make sure they still have copies. Thanks, Fiber Art Now
I live in Brooks, Alberta, Canada and would love to add your magazine to our library. Could they have a discount on mailing or online? Sarah McCormack, our Head Librarian is very pro-electronic.
Hi, Sarah. Thank you for the note! We have just started offering a library discount and we are working on the digital version right now. Let’s take this conversation to email. I’ll contact you regarding details. Best, FAN
I am very excited to see my paper and stitch sculpture, Twasser’s Rose Vase, in the Gail Harker Creative Studies Article. I have been studying with Gail for about 9 years, and her school is very deserving of your attention! Also glad to see the article on Lanny Bergner! I am looking forward to receiving this edition soon! Thank You!
Susan, We LOVE your work and were so excited to put it in the summer issue. FAN is on 300 newsstands now, too.
I paid to get the back issues in June but have not received them yet. Can you tell me when I will receive them?
Deborah, Please give us a call directly so we can straighten this out: 413-222-0720.
Best, Fiber Art Now
Deborah, We apologize for your wait and want to get this straightened out right away. We will email you directly.
Impressive publication. I’ll do a year and look forward to a comprehensive illustration of fiber art. Glad it’s in B&N, so the wider public can be exposed to the incredible diversity of our artistic expression.
It will be a good source to discover the fiber artists’ s magical world
Thank you for joining our community!
Hi – just wondering what the progress is on getting this also in digital form? I stopped subscribing to Selvedge because the issues never survived my mail service very well and was delighted when I found their digital subscription via Exact Editions. I also get some of my art magazines through Zinio. Might I see Fiber Art Now in either of those service or another anytime soon? Thanks!
A resounding YES, Elizabeth! As a matter of fact, we’re testing it right now. Look for it by the time the Summer issue is released. It will be included in regular paper subscriptions, and then we’ll have a digital-only subscription rate. Best, FAN
Looking forward to the digital copy! So easy to take my ipad along with me everywhere I go.
Renewed the other day.
I am looking forward to the digital edition too! Mail delivery in my area is just terrible!
Any news yet on digital subscriptions?!
Yes, as a matter of fact, it’s in production right now and we were hoping to roll it out to everyone by July, but it will be later in the Summer. Stay tuned, it’s on the way!!

Just renewed — thanks for the fabulous renewal rate!
I think this publication has been a fine replacement for the defunct FiberArts magazine. It has gotten better with each issue. The latest issue-Summer 2013 was a real treat because my work was featured in the article Unearthing Eco Dyes. Truly eye candy from cover to cover.
I do have two concerns however. The summer issue arrived with the warning that my subscription expired with that issue and because I’ve been a subscriber since the very first issue in 2011–I thought my subscription would end with the Fall 2013 issue.
My 2nd concern is the trouble I had finding a store that carried FAN in my area so family and friends who wanted the summer issue could find it. None were in my immediate southwestern Illinois region. No Books A Million stores carried it here or in St. Louis and I found only two Barnes and Noble across the river in St. Louis who carried it–but had to call them numerous times to see if the issue had arrived. All the stores told me they had no control over selecting which magazines they carry–that’s a decision made by headquarters, so I could not request they carry it. And both stores where I eventually found it did not have the issue in their stores until July.
Thanks for your thoughtful note. We are grateful to have such a passionate community surrounding FAN. The cover wrap is put on magazines for subscribers that have one issue remaining, so they don’t end up with a gap in their subscription. It is a typical way for magazines to remind subscribers of their upcoming renewal. At the same time, we have decided not to continue using them, mostly because they damage the cover of the magazine when they are torn off. Still, in the future subscribers will receive some other form of renewal message, before their subscription has completely run out.
With regard to newsstand locations, FAN, like many magazines, is strategically placed in stores where we are most likely to have good sales. If we didn’t do this, there would be stores where none of them sell, and we would eventually go out of business, because we had not managed our circulation strategy. Still, I realize that when we say we are carried in over 400 Barnes and Noble stores, it seems like that must include most of them. In reality, there are about 675 Barnes and Noble stores in the US, so for a baby that just celebrated its second birthday, we’re pretty proud to appear in 400 of them.
Thank you again for taking the time to share your ideas and concerns. Having an engaged community has helped us grow and shape Fiber Art Now, and we are grateful for the collaboration for everyone. Best, FAN
