Andrea (Andy) of O&Y Studio is a North Carolina fiber artist who creates one-of-a-kind wool floral art. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching as her work develops into a signature style; she fills embroidery hoops with a crocheted background and then adds freehand, textured, organic embroidery atop the crochet to create inspiring works of art. She also combines crochet with driftwood for original wall hangings that would add cozy fun style to just about any home. I was thrilled when she agreed to an interview for the blog.
Lisa Anderson Shaffer is a textile artist who creates crochet art pieces and also has a line of fiber art jewelry called Zelma Rose. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to interview her about her work, her history with crochet and how crafting has offered benefits in her life as well as the life of her grandmother.
Yarnbombing Los Angeles has put out a call for entries for a collaborative fiber art project themed “California Landscapes”.
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!

I want to encourage you to check out the many works of crochet art by the artists who are members of the Surface Design Association.
Some of my favorite crochet quotes are words written some time ago that sound as though they could have been written today.
