Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Good Morning Everyone,

It is a beautiful sun shiny day in New York, and as usual I have a full day planned. I wanted to get in a blog post this morning because a lot of things going on this week.

On Thursday, I will be at the Lion Brand Studio in New York City for a book signing for my new book THE COMPLETE PHOTO GUIDE TO CROCHET, and I will be back on Sunday for a Master Class - Finishing Like a Pro -, I hope that I will get to see some of you who live in the area. My Companion Book THE COMPLETE PHOTO GUIDE TO KNITTING, will be out July 1st and is available for pre-order. The other photos are of the beautiful Lion Brand Studio in New York City, and a great photo of the happy students at my last class at Lion Brand Studio.

As some of you know, I love to Free Form and I belong to The International Free Form Group. For the past few years we have participated in a group challenge, to create a free form piece for a set theme. The 2010 International Freeform Fiberarts Guild show, "Somewhere in My World", includes 61 freeform fiber artists from all around the globe.
 The artists were given the choice of creating one freeform piece interpreting the theme any way they chose using any materials and any techniques.

The artists were not restricted to scrumbles and many of the pieces are wearable art and sculptural as well. None of the artists saw each other's pieces until the online show was published.

For several years, one of our moderators, Myra Wood,
has put together a book of our creations. The newest book for this years challenge is available now. All proceeds from the book go to charities helping women in third world countries. Thanks to Myra, who works so hard getting all our photos and text in beautiful order, another great book is available for all to see.
There is a preview of the entire book on Blurb so you can see every page before ordering

Have a great weekend

I recently purchased "The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet" and "Plus Size Crochet" as a birthday treat for myself. I love them! I have been a fan ever since I purchased your book "One Piece Knits that Fit". I find your books to be user friendly and easy to understand. Thank you!
