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.
The Yarnbombing Los Angeles crochet art exhibit that I contributed to (along with many, many others) has its opening reception in Los Angeles tomorrow.
I promised you that when I went to the Gaultier exhibit at the De Young Museum I’d take photos of the crochet there to share with you. Well, I just went and here are those images.
It’s a geeky fun science themed textile are exhibit. The month-long exhibit kicked off yesterday with a yarnbombing event.
Did you know that crochet was “an integral part of the life on a working narrowboat”? I didn’t until recently when I read about a new crochet exhibition that has opened up at the National Waterways Museum in the UK’s Ellesmere Port.
