We are sharing photos of a past event to entice you to come to an event in the future! Fiber artist Bonnie Melzer is putting on another “Crochet Out” in Hood River on October 20th. Participants are free to join in for as long as they want to, all working together to create a free-form crochet sculpture.
The event is FREE but you must register here: Register for the crochet-out
When it was held in Vancouver, Washington, writer Karen Madsen had this to say about the event in the Arts of Clark County Newsletter:
Artist Bonnie Meltzer wrangled and guided 30 people as they made a truly unique work of art. Starting with just a 75-foot core of Pendleton blanket selvage, participants took the brightly colored balls of wool and joined in, working alongside each other, crocheting and connecting one strand of yarn to another. As artists shared their ideas and helped each other form the composition from a wild and unruly bundle, a common idea emerged and a singular work was created. It was kind of magical and wonderful.
The new Hood River Event is OCTOBER 20 – see link below. We have donated selvage for the event, which promises to be wonderful fun.
According to artist and organizer Bonnie Melzer:
I had such a good time in Vancouver and all the participants loved [Pendleton’s] big fat material to work with. The size of it enabled us to get a finished piece done in a day. Hooray for Pendleton! Thank you for your generosity and support. I am looking forwards to the Hood River Crochet Out. Every place I do this the results are different but always exciting.
So come join the fun! More information and FREE registration at this link: REGISTER
