Crochet Fun for All!

summer camp
We have been having tons of fun working on our crochet reef!  Last week we got to join the kids at the Utah Museum of Natural History and Great Salt Lake Institute summer camp.  What a great group of quick learners and fun kids these guys were!  They crocheted seaweed to add to the reef exhibit.

I've been told they had so much fun, that the next day some of the boys were asking for more yarn to keep crocheting!

crocheting boys are cool
These guys had some giant chains going!

Last night, we installed our mini reef at the Utah Arts Festival.  You can see the kids' seaweed in there, and draped in the bushes.

The mini reef is in flag pole circle, on the east side of the City and County Building, right along with all of the yarn bombing and Random Acts of Art presented by Utah Arts Festival and Art Access.

Stop by the Utah Arts Festival Thursday through Sunday (June 23-26).  The yarn bombers will be there knitting and crocheting each day, noon to 9pm.

We still need lots (LOTS!!) more crocheters to create our big reef that will be exhibited in October at the Meldrum Science Center at Westminster College.  We welcome all contributions to the reef, from one piece of coral to a school of crocheted amigarumi fish.   Email Bobbi at to contribute your creations!
