Help Wanted - Frida Flowers

Edited on 5/20/2020

Before the pandemic, Glen Ellyn was planning to host the Frida Kahlo exhibit this summer. This event has been rescheduled for next year.


We are still planning to fill our window (and neighborhood) with flowers this summer.  Please help by crocheting some Frida Roses for us with your leftover yarn. 

Any size yarn and corresponding hook will work. The thicker the yarn, the larger the flower. We will gladly accept all shapes, sizes and colors.

Please drop them off at String Theory (you can put them through the mail slot) by May 31. Thank you.

Here is Sharon's video tutorial:

Is there a due date for the flowers? When do you need them by?
