On this episode of YarnCraft, Zontee and Michelle discuss some of the wonderful fiber art installations and exhibits happening all over the world.
Listener Cami points us to an exhibit at MASS MoCA called “New Work” by Anna Betbeze.
Michelle shares her experiences with a piece at Crystal Bridges Museum.
Then Zontee interviews Magda Sayeg, artist and yarn bomber, about her work, her inspiration, and how she handles color.
On Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life, we check in with our 2012 goals. How are you coming along with the goals you set at the beginning of this year for your crafting? Leave a comment and let us know!
We also share advice for those who are looking for new goals, having powered through their first set already, as well as words of encouragement for those who are in need of a little motivation to get moving on their to-do list.
