The Tide Pool Project – Call For Entries.

CALL FOR ENTRIES: We are seeking submissions from textile and mixed-media artists from around the world to create a collaborative tide pool made up of textile stones, kelp, anemone, barnacles, octopi, crabs, shells and other related flora and fauna. Our goal is to create a textile tide pool that will bring awareness to the importance of our coastal waters and the delicate and critical balance they play in the health and future of our planet

Earthquake in Chile

Dear friends,

Sorry to interrupt your crocheting activities, but I just want to tell you that on Saturday 27th, 3.34 am, we received an unwanted guest. It was an 8.8 degrees (richter scale) earthquake that shook our country from 4th to 9th region. It's true that Chile is a country used to this kind of "tremors" but this time our buildings and little towns couldn't stand the strength of nature. On the other hand, some coastal towns were flooded by tsunamis. Those places, that were full of people enjoying their vacations, now do not exist.

Cities like Concepción, Cauquenes, Chillán and others don't have food, water and electricity. This situation have led thieves to strike into supermarkets and houses that were left by people due to damages in the structure.

I just want to ask for help. We are a great community and we are always willing to help each other.
I guess RED CROSS is a good way to help.

I added a link for you to know more details.

Thanks in advance to all of you.
