Retour en 2014 there was an amazing gallery exhibit of crochet from Tuvalu and people began to pay attention to the history and art of the craft in that region. Depuis ce temps, not much has been published online, but it’s worth a look back at that exhibit to get some inspiration!
Do something special for yourself in 2017. Take the time to go on a crochet vacation. Take a trip to a crochet retreat, book yourself on a crochet cruise or attend a crochet workshop / convention in an interesting area. Here are some of the best options for 2017 crochet de voyage.

I’ve been enjoying watching Creators of Tomorrow, a ten episode documentary show available on Vimeo that follows the journeys of three social enterprises that are trying to better the world. Spécifiquement, I’ve been interested in the story of Haiti Babi, a fair trade knit and crochet organization started by two Seattle women that employs mothers in Haiti to help keep their children out of orphanages.
Mandalas for Marinke is a collaborative crochet art project.

Here’s a roundup of the posts that went live on the blog in December and January, in case you missed any … or just want to enjoy seeing them all in one place!
