ArtPrize entry by JA FELT

There are many wonderful views of the Chroma Passage felt art exhibited by Janice Arnold at Grand Rapids ArtPrize. I have thoroughly enjoyed everyone's pictures yet I am sure all would agree, the work is so amazing it is impossible to capture the true beauty except in person. This view is at the far end of the passageway, Janice calls it the Petoskey Arch - note the formations of the piece in the upper center which resembles our petoskey stones. I wish everyone could see it in person.

I kept walking back and forth in the hallway to view new details of her work and wanted to share one with you. This is a detail of one of the four 34 ft. long pieces at either end of the passage. There are more detail pictures on the Marr Haven Wool Yarn Shop Facebook page

9 days left of Anniversary Specials and ONLY 2 weeks till FELT UNITED

Tomorrow, Friday the 17th, all knitting patterns are 25% off; then Saturday through the 24th all knitting needles and tools are 25% off. The final day, Sat. 25th, Marr Haven Yarn is 25% off.

It always seems to me that as the fall days shorten in daylight, the clocks go faster. This year especially, we went from Fiber Festival to 25th Anniversary for the shop and already it is just 2 weeks away from the International Day of Felt United event at the farm. The exhibits and demonstrations will be under cover in the tent or yurt in front of the shop so if it is cool that day, do bring a jacket. The shop will be open, of course, but the action will be outside. We do hope you come and bring a friend.
