I am thrilled to share this post with you today about fiber artist Suzann Thompson who uses a technique called TextileFusion, which combines crochet with knitting, quilting, and embellishment. Her upcoming exhibit Celebrate Doilies! “honors doily crocheters through photos of family heirlooms, and stories about crocheters, past and present.” It includes truly beautiful art quilts by Suzann as well as works by Texas poet Sandi Horton.
I previously shared an announcement about the documentary YARN by Una Lorenzen, a film that looks at four different knitting and crochet artists (including Olek) with an eye towards all of the cutting-edge things that yarn crafting can do. Today I have an interview with the film’s co-director and producer Heather Millard, who shares, “I want people to enjoy the film, to lose themselves in yarn for a little while, to feel inspired by what yarn can create and represent.”
I am always astounded by what people are doing in crochet art, taking their skills with crochet and applying original ideas to create the most unique items!
Una Lorenzen’s documentary titled “yarn” takes a look at knitting and crochet artists around the world and the interesting work that they are doing with needles, hooks and yarn. The film debuted at SXSW to mixed reviews but looks worth a watch to me.
