Me... An Artist in Residence?

Who knew when I decided to spend more time focusing on my career as a Fiber Artist, Certified Knit & Crochet Teacher and business owner that I would have the opportunities that I have had!

On Saturday, February 27th, I was asked to give an artist demonstration as part of Black History Month at the Indiana State Museum.   I offered Cardboard Weaving and Finger Crocheting. 

I met some really nice people who took the time to talk with me and create some unique art pieces.  From the father who said he looks for activities for his children that don't involve electronics, to the women who said they could never learn how to crochet, a good time was had by all!  I even saw some people that I knew who were visiting the museum and the Imax theater. 
What's next?
I am one of the artists in the Hoosier Women in Art exhibition that opens on March 5th at the Garfield Park Arts Center. The theme is Avant Garde so I created some Hyperbolic Crochet pieces.

Some other events are in the discussion stage, but I've learned not to talk about them until all of the details have been worked out.

I am very thankful for ALL that I have the opportunity to do each day and for the people who continue to support me.  Thank you!
