"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers
connect us with our fellow men." --Herman Melville
The Emanuel Congregation Sewing Ladies were by far our biggest contributor having made several hundred flowers, but even those who had never knitted or crocheted contributed allium and dandelion puffs.
One gentelman at the Howard Area Community Center contributed a large red crocheted banner. It became the base for what I call the "pole of wishing flags." We had a number of rectangular contributions that didn't quite fit the garden theme, but look lovely as flags!
October 6th is the official Chicago Artists Month tour of the Rogers Park yarn bombings. Hope to see you at the mini yarn bombing event hosted by the Rogers Park Business Alliance at 2pm!
