Hearts: With Love, Lisa - Friday, August 23, 5:30-7:00 pm
Lisa Daehlin has been giving away the little crocheted hearts that she makes while riding the New York subway. Come hear how this random act of creative kindness has affected her life and the lives of the recipients. In Lisa's words:
As I travel through life and this world, I find more deeply the wisdom of a friend's words: "Life IS other people."
Sometimes, it's hard to connect with the people we meet. I'm a gal from a really small town (264 people), so, it wasn't all that often that I encountered a stranger.
Now, living in Manhattan, I am blessed with interactions among people new to me every single day. At times, the distance is comforting; other times, it's uncomfortable.
I'm not alone in having someone say, "Hey, lady! What are you making?" when I'm knitting/crocheting in public. Sometime around Valentine's Day 2016, I began making and giving away crocheted hearts on the subway and streets of New York. It's been quite the ice breaker.
Join me to hear some of those stories! As always, I see life through a knitted (and crocheted) lace lens, so there'll be a fair amount of that, too. This yarny-yammering-on includes a presentation of images to ponder, fabrics to pet, ideas, designs, and meanderings.
