The International Fiber Collaborative is seeing crafters to participate in their upcoming project.
From the site:
The goal of the International Fiber Collaborative is to provide an opportunity for people who enjoy working with crafts, whether professional artists, hobbyists or students to come together from all over the world to express their concerns about their countries extreme dependency on oil for energy. Those who participate will crochet, knit, stitch, patch, or collage a 3 feet x 3 feet square fiber panel that will express each participants concern towards topic. By taking the step to create a panel with any design, and sending it in, in the larger picture, is expressing your concern towards this topic. Once all 800 panels are received, they will be sewn together to completely cover an abandoned gas station and gas pumps in central New York.
All submissions are due March 15, 2008. To find out how to participate, visit the International Fiber Collaborative web site here. Link.
