MEET THE EXPERTS | 80 STITCHES TO THE INCH: THE MICROSCOPIC WORLD OF ALTHEA CROME

National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, Kansas City, MO

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 08, 2019 | 2 - 3 PM

Indiana-based Althea Crome is a self-taught fiber artist who has pioneered conceptual knitting in small scale. She makes her own knitting needles from surgical wire and uses fine silk sewing thread to achieve the tiny stitches that compose her work. As part of our Meet the Experts series, Crome will discuss how she developed her process, the challenges she faces in her work, and her career highlights, including the use of her miniature garments in the 2009 stop motion film Coraline. Included with admission. Free for members.
