I am sad to announce that my grandmother Cleopatra Trammell, the woman that taught me this wonderful art has passed away today. Sept 9th 2010 at 11:45 this morning in Boston Massachusetts. Rest in peace Nana. Van II. Thank you for this wonderful talent
Im a crochet artist that hails from Washington DC but was taught the art in Boston Massachusetts by my grandmother. I spent ten years in South Carolina. I make clothing for real people and models alike. The way i work is that you pick the color, the stitch, the length basically the entire design of the what ever and I become your hands. I make barefoot sandal, bikinis, kids booties, dresses, hats and scarves and more. Just stop by and ask and I love for my skills to be tested. Ive done seat covers for cars, placemat sets, his and her cotton knit towels, seriously just ask.
Other shows include:
Patapsco State park meet and greet X2
Slyhorse Studios annual meet and greet X2
Howard University Arts Center X2
Galesville MD meet and greet.
I have three different bikini versions.
V1 acrylic. Dries fast, very light weight, almost endless solid colors
V2 Cotton. hypoallergenic, pre shrunk, holds water so you stay cooler longer on hot days, limited colors and three tone blended colors
V3 Bamboo Silk. Lightweight, dries fast, stay cool while wet or dry due to wicking properties. Exotic colors like persimmon, gunmetal gray, sagebrush.
