Choi + Shine Artist Talk
SPA is working with artist team Choi + Shine on a large scale crochet-based installation that will be installed in the canal at the Scottsdale Waterfront in November 2018. We are looking for experienced crochet artists to contribute to the work. Production begins now and runs through June. The artists will supply all materials and patterns. All volunteers will be credited and artists actually map the work so that you will be able to locate your contributions in the final installation! The artists will be speaking about this project next Friday, November 3, in the SMoCA Lounge, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Please join us at one of the artist talks and help spread the word tony enthusiastic crochet artists you know!

Mesa Art Fair December 9 and 10
Think “cool” — like December and the Mesa Art Fair! On December 9 and 10, 2017 we will again have a double booth display to sell all of the wonderful things our members make. For the last two years we have sold 184 and 188 items, respectively.
So, start thinking what you want to have in the booth to sell. As in previous years, each member who wants to sell items, pays $20 to help defray the booth fees and 15% of sales goes to Telarana; you keep 85%. This event is sponsored by Telarana as a service to our members and to educate the public. More details will come out in the fall, but we will be following the same procedures as previous years.
If you haven’t participated before and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Cindy Reynolds.
