How do I use values from objects on Form A with objects on Form B?

I have a Form, say Form A with many objects(textboxes, grids, menus, etc). A menu item from Form A calls Form B. I need to have Form B know about, say, a textbox text from Form A AND I need to have Form A know about, say, a variable value from form B. In other words, both forms need access to any object from the other form. Do you have some code examples of how to make the two forms share information?  Does this interest anyone? Thank you for your assistance.

on formA put the following code:

Public f2 As FormB

then do the following
        Dim tb As TextBox
        tb = f2.TextBox1()

Do something like...

Public Class FormA
    ...

    Private frmB As FormB

    Private Sub Button1_Click(...)
        frmB = New FormB
        frmB.frmA = Me
        frmB.Show()
    End Sub

    Private Sub Foo()
        If Not (frmB Is Nothing) Then
            frmB.TextBox1.Text = "Hello from FormA"
        End If
    End Sub

End Class

Public Class FormB
    ...

    Public frmA As FormA

    Private Sub Foo()
        If Not (frmA Is Nothing) Then
            frmA.TextBox1.Text = "Hello from FormB"
        End If
    End Sub

End Class

YZlat's solution  was interesting in that I learned how to assign a textbox to a new textbox. But Idle_Mind's solution pretty much does what I was looking for. I will split the points because I can use both solutions in my application. Thank you for your expertise.
