Harlem Needle Arts

Went to a presentation at Knitty City last night.  Harlem Needle Arts founder Michelle Bishop has a natural authority without being a show-off.  This woman can get things done! And what important and beautiful contributions.

I love this blue fabric. Its called Adire from the Yoruba in Nigeria.
This is one of the slides shown at the presentation.

This artist is now featured in an exhibit in Harlem that I plan to attend.

I think of the Japanese Blue that I have always loved called Yukata.
