(Event) Square Foot Fiber Art Pin Up Show

(Event) Square Foot Fiber Art Pin Up Show

The Square Foot Fiber Art Pin Up Show for 2016 opened with a reception at the SEFAA Center, and the entries are spectacular!

Every year the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance hosts this exhibition.  It is free to enter, un-juried, and open to everyone regardless of age, skill level, location, or SEFAA membership.  The rules for submission are that each entry must be 12″ x 12″ or smaller and must include at least one fiber technique.  Also, only one entry is allowed per person.

The show is available for viewing until the closing on May 7th on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 2 pm.  The exhibition can also be viewed by appointment.  Call 678-235-4328 if interested in seeing the show during other hours.

I didn’t have an entry this year.  My project just didn’t come together in time.  Next year …  Here are some of the photos I took from the exhibition.  There are more photos from the show and also last year’s show on my Instagram account.

(Event) Celebrate National Crochet Month

(Event) Celebrate National Crochet Month

March is National Crochet Month:  How are you celebrating?

Is anyone doing a crochet challenge or working on a special project for National Crochet Month?

I want to join the CGOA’s Across the Board Crochet-Along, but I’m already in the middle of another afghan. My plan is to at least start crocheting the afghan before NatCroMo ends.

Visit facebook.thisiscrochet.com and let us know you are celebrating with crochet.

Happy NatCroMo!

Happy National Crochet Month
