I still have a number of motifs, that needs to be connected. If you live in Japan and can help me with this, please get in touch. I can send you the motifs by delivery service. At the moment, I have enough motifs. Just looking for help connecting them.
On February 21. and 22. I will hold a ‘Granny Square Assemble’ workshop at the Yomiuri Culture – Handcraft Fair in Hamamatsucho. I hope many of you can join and help us connecting Granny Squares into many warm and colorful blankets. Entrance is free and you can see many other interesting craftspeople.
For those who are busy, please take some Granny Squares home to make a blanket with your family or friends. I would also be happy to hear from crochet clubs to help us make more blankets. Please visit the following link for detailed information.
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.
This week Friday, I will be again live on TV Kanagawa at their program ‘Arigato’ to present on “The Granny Square Project”. I will bring many of your beautiful squares to show on the program, so you might see your motif on TV.
More squares arrived here at my place over the past days. Little by little the numbers are increasing. As I have quite an amount together I am now starting to look for people helping me to crochet them together.
The Ravelry group ‘Monthly crochet for charity‘ has kindly volunteered and sent me 2 large envelopes with 68 beautifully designed Granny Squares. What a unique idea to crochet the Japanese national flag.
