Introducing Crochet-Arium: Charity Project for The Crochet Crowd
We are looking for your help to populate our incredible Crochet-Arium for Creativ Festival this October 2013.
We are looking for 1,000 creatures / decor and anything ‘under the sea’ themed for this show.
We’ve earned a reputation for showcasing yarn in a creative sense by pushing limits and boundaries. If I could truly convey how incredible our exhibits are and the reactions to up to 20,000 guests who view it first hand, I would gladly share that feeling with you.
Our 20′ x 30′ exhibit will appear as if we are at the bottom of the sea. Suspended characters and strategically placed characters crocheted by you. Can you imagine a yarn bombed boot or even an anchor?
While at the show, guests will be allowed to ‘fish’ from our aquarium with a minimum cash donation that will benefit Crafting For A Cure 100%. Guests can either purchase a character(s) and either take it with them and/or have us forward it to a child in a hospital.
I’m a strong believer of charity participation. Crafting For A Cure covers North America Wide in their reach. Just like The Crochet Crowd, they go beyond the local level.
If you have some extra yarn and would love to be on record for helping us make this exhibit, we would gladly love your help.
Each donation will be photographed and maintained for all to see on The Crochet Crowd Network. You can opt for us not to share your name if you wish.
Extra Giveaway Initiative
On top of that great feeling of participating, every donation that has a minimum of 5 Creatures for our Exhibit will be entered into a random draw. The winner will be able to choose which item they want. They can choose either the Furls Crochet Hook or the Crystal Bracelet.
The creatures need to be a gift you would give away to a child to make them feel special. This challenge is global in size, the draw is random and anyone on planet earth has an opportunity to win.
Below are some ideas, but don’t limit your creativity. As you know, under the sea is a world unto itself. People are inspired by crazy and imaginative ideas. So go crochet crazy with your ideas.
Most of them are super super cute! Happy clicking, these are really great!
