On Sunday, May 28, at 12:30 p.m. Central Time, I will launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to cover the remaining expenses of the Celebrate Doilies! exhibit you’ve been reading about on this blog.
Donation levels start at just $5.00, and there are rewards for each level. The more you donate, the better the rewards.
Please visit my Kickstarter page, and donate for art, for poetry, for heritage!
Celebrate Doilies! is a three-part exhibit. First there are doily-inspired art quilts by me. Here’s one called Winter Blues.
Part two of Celebrate Doilies! is poetry by Sandi Horton. She was inspired by the crochet-work of her mother and grandmothers. Read her poem about this pretty green and white doily here (scroll down a bit).
The third section of Celebrate Doilies! includes stories and photos of doily crocheters past and present, and their work. Here’s one of the stories that will be in the show:
The show will be beautiful, and your contribution will ensure that all the heritage posters and poems are printed and hung, and more.
I appreciate your support, and I look forward to sending your rewards!
