Yarn Bombing at Knit Stitch

This past weekend I had a fun time facilitating a yarn bombing of a bike at the Knit Stitch in London. I love that this type of activity can bring a community together and beautify!
In 2010 I facilitated a yarn bombing for the Textile Museum of Canada, got submissions from all over the world and we had several people volunteer to sew pieces together, again creating a wonderful community project.
The bike for Knit Stitch was created is for Gathering on the Green which is an arts festival that happens yearly in London.

Here are some pictures of the progress!

Toy Show at Meet Your Maker Gallery

Ten of my Animal Icons are currently in a show at Meet Your Maker Gallery and Gift Shop in Stratford. It's called, Show and Tell and will be up until the end of March. 
Gallery owner, Leigh Cooney wrote a lovely description of my work:

"Alisa McRonald is a fibre artist living and working in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. She has a certificate in jewelry design and has studied tapestry weaving under Ixchel Suarez, but it's her line of mixed media anthropomorphic art dolls that will be featured in this exhibition. Anyone who understand the nuances of neo-folk will fully appreciate the subtle genius conatined within each figure."

The opening was this past Saturday and I had a great time! Here is an article about the show and opening.
