Weaving Stories Exhibition, The Next Chapter!

In honor of Kuwait's National Day, we were asked by 360 mall to exhibit the Weaving Stories woven wall and interactive loom for 9 days! It was wonderful to be able to share the exhibition with even more people! 

The interactive loom was a real hit and many people of all ages stopped by to try their hand at weaving and write a little something that they wanted to share about themselves.

The loom filled up several times during the 9 days, and we now have a lovely collection of woven strips. We are brainstorming how to display them in the gallery.

Here are snippets of all of the crochet panels that were in the wall. Some wonderful techniques and stitches were represented: applique, filet crochet, interlocking crochet, freeform crochet, broomstick lace and crocheted motifs. It was wonderful to have another chance to photograph the wall again, as I was able to focus on specific elements this time, and take pictures in natural light! 






Soon, we are hoping to have a permanent location to display the wall for visitors to see for years to come!


  1. Nice! I wasn't able to visit as it was during the time we were in Sri Lanka. I hope you will find a permanent location so that others can enjoy all the creativity that went into the making of these panels.

  2. Thank you, Tammy! Sorry you weren't able to make it. I hope it will have a permanent home soon! :-)

  3. Wow! I saw this previously on your blog and I am enjoying it just as much if not more this time. I especially like the 'desert' scenes and the city skyline is amazing. I'm so glad you have more photos to share. I wonder what sorts of messages were conveyed on your collaborative weaving project. I love that the public were invited to participate in that way. :-)

  4. Thank you so much for your kind comment, Jodiebodie! If you would like to read what the artists wrote about their panels, there is a blog post about it on our Weaving Stories Blog:
