Yarn-graffiti a store!
He will provide some materials and some instruction and we will take over the whole front of a building!!
He has all the afghans and granny squares he could find at all the area Goodwills and materials you can use to make your own squares to add or embroider your name or images or anything you want [within reason] to the wall of this building.
He’s even bringing the pattern to make some space invaders out of squares.
8-bit graffiti! He’ll bring patterns for Marios and other game figures for the more adventurous.
Come down and meet other stitchers or bring all your friends!!

Three members of Surface Design Association (Washington), Lynne Rigby, Kristine Service and Mary Berdan, along with Mary Lewis and Deborah Jaffe, meet as a small group weekly to study art history. Referring to themselves as the Thursday Art Group (TAG-5), they have been meeting faithfully for about three years.
An article regarding these artists, their art, and art studies has been published in the August/September 2012 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. The article is titled Replenishing Your Creative Well: Fiber Art Groups by Lynn Krawczyk.
The group also has a blog which chronicles their art history journey. http://arthistorygroup.blogspot.com/ Their blog states: “Our intention is to inspire each of our blog readers as we share some of our art history studies with you.”
