Crochet Challenge 2015

Join JadeRoseCrochet in participating in the 2015 Crochet Challenge,  Post War Blues, at the Booklyn Army Terminalby mixed media artist Isabelle Garbani..  This community based installation calls attention to the issue of the many innovations that occur as a result of war,  what happens after the conflict is resolved, and how we can work together to heal as a group.
