UNE Maine Crochet Class brings Dean's from both Locations

Tuesday October 18th brought the last in a series of crochet classes to support participation in the Maine Crochet Reef Project to the UNE, Biddeford campus. Beginners and experienced crocheters participated with enthusiasm including some children, students, faculty members along with Dean's from both the Biddeford and Portland campuses.
It is a privilege to have UNE Biddeford on board and we are in process of organizing workshops for the Portland Campus. Check back for upcoming postings.
Thanks to Sarah Gorham for initiating and organizing  the crochet workshops. Sarah will also be organizing group "sit ins" for students faculty and friends to gather several times a month to create pieces for the reef now that they have learned to crochet. Watch for listings on our calendar as soon as they are announced.

UNE Biddeford has also announced that they will be a drop location for anyone who has pieces, yarn or hooks to donate. Donations of work and supplies can be dropped off at the Fine Arts Department to Sarah Gorham's attention.

Some happy students!

Here is the start of the UNE reef contributions! YEAH!

Let's help it grow! Happy creating!
