From all of us at Lion Brand, Happy New Year!
Tell us about your knitting and crochet resolutions for 2015 in the comments below.
The World Amigurumi Exhibition is happening at Resobox, now through to February 28th, and I had the chance to stop by this past weekend.
Resobox is a Japanese cultural center in Long Island City and their mission is to share and celebrate Japanese influence in the arts. The World Amigurumi Exhibition features over 4,000 amigurumi contributed by over 140 artists from 32 different countries — and it’s something else.
Among my favorite finds – Star Wars Kewpie dolls, Frida Kahlo dolls and colorful ninjas!
I took my six year son and my husband and they both loved the show – there really is something for everyone – and because it’s all for sale, make plans to visit sooner rather than later!
p.s. If you’re going to be at Vogue Knitting Live in NYC this January, Resobox curators Takashi Ikezawa and Helen Moss are giving a FREE lecture on Sunday, January 18th at 11:15am–12:00 noon. I’m planning to be there – hope to see you too! I also understand that VKLive is hosting a pop-up shop – great news for those of you who can’t make it out to Queens.
Below is a selection of photos I took at the show – photography is encouraged at Resobox!
From our family to yours, have a safe and happy Christmas!
