Meet Mochimochi Land Creator & Fiber Artist, Anna Hrachovec!
Sunday July 14, 2013: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Spend the afternoon with Anna Hrachovec - famous Brooklyn knitter, fiber artist and creator of the amazing Mochimochi Land world of tiny knitted toys, creatures and spectacular installations.
Anna will do a fun slideshow presentation, answer questions and talk about the amazing world of tiny knitting she has created.
Mochimochi Land was launched in 2007 as a place where knitted toys and people can live together in a spirit of tolerance. The characters that inhabit Mochimochi Land are Anna's original designs. Anna finds inspiration in Hello Kitty, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, and illustrators like Dr Seuss and Mary Blair. Anna's knitted toys have been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, all around the web, and in print. The mochimochiland.com website also features Anna's books, kits, and downloadable knitting and cross-stitch patterns. Printed Mochimochi Land patterns and kits are also available.
When she's not designing patterns to share with fellow crafters, Anna creates character-based fiber art, which has been exhibited throughout the US, Europe, and Asia. You can also see her art at annahrachovec.com.
Anna's three books will be on sale and she will be signing after her presentation. Players of the AADL summer game keep your eyes peeled for special MochiMochi badges, installations around town & more!
This event is for adults and teens (grade 6 and up).
