Welcome to PLY Miami
We have a new name, new members, new projects!
Our next meeting is August 24, 2019 at Pandoree Cafe at 2:00 because the following weekend is Labor Day weekend. Where has this year gone? I hope it has been a creative year for you so far.
One of our very successful projects over summer has been knitting and crocheting nests for the baby birds in rehab at Pelican Harbor Seabird Station. We love them because they are quick and easy and for a good pupose. The staff at Pelican Harbor is very happy to have them because Miami doesn’t have a set nesting season so birds are hatching and falling out of nests all year. The 3 on the left are by member Debbie. She hand spun her wool and then crocheted them! Lucky babies who get to live here, soooo soft. The bright orange one in the second photo was made by visiting artist Leisa Rich who came all the way from Atlanta just to make this nest. Thanks Leisa! It was great having you here! Ever prolific and talented member, Dana, crocheted the other 9 nests! Thanks everyone.
