The 2020 International Freeform Fiberart Guild’s Annual Challenge gallery is live! My piece for the collection is called “The Fire Inside”:
The IFFFG is a collection of freeform crochet artists from around the world. We gather online to select a theme for our challenge each year. Members interpret the theme however they wish. Our theme for this year was Brilliance—the Fire Within.
This theme had me stumped for months. I was 100% sure I wasn’t going to participate in this year’s challenge because I just had no idea what I was going to make. As the deadline approached, I decided to give it one last shot.
I started with color. I pulled a bunch of fiery embroidery flosses from my stash and started crocheting. My original thought was to make a brooch because it would be small and at least I would have done something. My brooch quickly grew into something larger, and this necklace began to take shape.
I’ve never made a necklace like this before, and I must say, I am really happy with it.
Twenty-one artists from all over the world participated in this year’s challenge. View our online gallery here, or purchase a book of the works here.
Until next time,
