New input for the exhibition
Yesterday I met with Sharleen Greer from Warkworth. Wow! - in every sense of the word. Sharleen has had crocheted and sewn articles accepted for local and national competitions, with her Barbie dress that was in the WOW - World of Wearable art awards being a special highlight. She has been teaching freeform crochet, especially the Pru Mapstone-style bagmaking, and she co-ordinates local knitting, crochet and yarnbombing groups. So exciting! We 'clicked' immediately - kindred spirits! She is going to be involved in 'Knitcetera' and is also going to carry the message to her group next week, so they can plan some items to include too. The most exciting part of the discussion was that she will allow her range of knitted and crocheted wearable art to feature. Fantastic.
