I’m a member of the New York City Crochet Guild. The group is made up of area crocheters; some professional; some hobbyists; all passionate. We meet monthly in the basement of a church in the East 30’s in Manhattan. For anyone who equates crochet with quiet little old ladies making granny squares or serenely expectant mothers making booties; the meetings would be a revelation. These gatherings are raucous affairs. The monthly meeting is a place to learn, laugh (loudly and often), share and show off. It’s great fun.
Between meetings we maintain the lively discussions on-line. We have a very active private yahoo discussion group. At any given time there can be several “conversations” going full force; and because the pace can be so fast and furious, I usually have a back log of the messages in a dedicated e-mail account.
This morning I decide to catch up with the discussion group. Recently, Lily Chin (yes the Lily Chin – she’s a wonderfully chatty member) posted a link to an architectural firm in the Netherlands called DUS Architects Amsterdam. The firm specializes in public architecture/public art (an interest of mine). The firm created a wedding chapel that gives the saying “tying the knot” a little twist.
