This includes the cover story by Alice Scherer on the "contemporary beadwork as an art form" movement, which came out in time for the release of The New Beadwork. Four artists are covered in her story: Jacqueline Lillie of Vienna, Austria, Ed Derwent of Chicago, Carlos Cobos of New Mexico, and Jeanne Leffingwell of Moscow, Idaho. The work ranges from delicate jewelry to wall pieces, and up to huge wall and ceiling sculptures. A generous sampling of photographs clearly illustrate the various artists' work. Additionally, a portfolio of contemporary beadwork followed this article and included the work of Elizabeth Bertuccio, Peggy Kendellen, Valerie Hector, Joyce Scott, Joanne Laessig, Lindsay Obermeyer, Sherry Hart, Mimi Holmes, Jeanette Ahlgren, Eve and Dan King-Lehman, Jeannine Goreski, and Caroline Prince Batchelor. And finally, the contemporary beadwork articles are followed by an article on Beaded Moccasins of the Plateau Tribes, by Benson Lanford. Definitely more beadwork in one issue of Fiberarts than was seen before or since!

This includes Alice Scherer's article Jeanette Ahlgren: Explorations in Color. Ahlgren's luminous use of clear and opaque seed beads shows a masterful control of both the benefits of glass beads and the difficulties inherent in using them. Her loom-woven basket forms are strong, magical, and utterly inspiring.
