Celebrating Crochet with a Positive Spin

Crochet at SMW Part 2

on August 15, 2016

**Warning – the following post has lots of pictures, so please view on an appropriate device**

Last week I posted on the professional designs that were shown during the Vendor & Sponsor Fashion Show that took place on Friday night at Stitches Midwest. This post is going to be about the Student Banquet, which takes place on Saturday night.

The Student Banquet is probably my favorite event at Stitches. It is the last big event for the weekend, a bunch of prizes are given out, and everyone has lots of fun. What makes the Student Banquet special is the fashion show, because it is all volunteer models showing off the amazing things they have created.

This year at the Student Banquet, a total of 49 items were modeled. Today, with the permission of XRX, Inc. to use their pictures, I will share the 10 crocheted items that were shown.

This is a bonus to start us all off 😉 Every year, the amazing Lily Chin wears a new item that she created. This year, since this event quickly followed the CGOA conference, Lily wore the same outfit to both events, but I am not complaining. Lily created the pineapple dress using Tunisian crochet stitches, and crocheted the leaves that form the neckline. Just stunning work from the newest inductee into the Crochet Designer Hall of Fame.

Now, presented without comment because their skills speak for themselves, here are the Crocheters at Stitches Midwest.

I am in awe of these ladies, sharing the amazing work they do with crochet. It was fabulous to get to see these pieces in person, and I’m happy to share them here with you.

Have a good week!
