The event “Hand to Heart Vol.3” in Sapporo seems to be a great success. People joint and made over 50 beautiful motifs in many different colors. Thank you Ohira-san for organizing it and making more motifs. I hope one day I can join you for another event in Hokkaido.
Here are some pictures from the event. You can read a report (Japanese) and see more pictures at this link.
札幌のイベント“Hand to Heart Vol.3”大成功であると思われます。多くの人々は集まって、美しいモチーフ50枚以上を作り出した。大平ーさん本当にありがとうございます。たくさんのモチーフも作るためにありがとうございます。私はある日、北海道のイベントに皆さんと参加することができます願っています。
The other day I received a large box from Iwate-ken. A kind lady there has made and sent me 88 beautiful Granny Squares. Each made with such precision and details, like small pieces of art. Thank you Hiroko-san.
Visitors will also be treated with European food and drinks and small European giftware on sale at different booths and stalls. The choice of products includes beer (Irish pub and Belgian bar), softdrinks, Hungarian food and wine, Austrian food and drinks and small giftware, Portuguese food and wine, Belgian “Liège” style waffles, French and Portuguese wine and Swedish wood-craft. There will also be 2 showcases: yarn knitting and needlepoint and a show of Polish traditional costumes with photo opportunity.
Today, I hit the mark for more than 2,000 Granny Squares. Thank you all for making this possible. Take a look at all those beautiful motifs. A mother and her daughter have send me Granny’s for the 2nd time. Thanks Noriko and Tomoko. A dear friend made me enough for a blanket and more parcels arrived today.
My presentation at PechaKucha Tokyo from last week is featured today as ‘Presentation of the Day‘ on the PK webpage. A big ‘Thank You’ to the PechaKucha team supporting ‘The Granny Square Project’. PechaKucha is currently running event in 643 cities. If each city would just send me 10 Granny Squares, I would have enough to make the world record and helping many people in Tohoku.
During the event a lady from the audience had prepared several motifs and kindly brought them over during the presentation. Thank you very much for the motifs.
If you have not yet attended a PechaKucha night, I would highly recommend you to do so. Each time I attended I met very interesting people and leant something new. Please see the PechaKucha calendar for an event near you.
