Houston Holocaust Museum - Butterflies needed

Recommended Posts

Well, actually, since it says "Butterflies may be of any medium the artist chooses, but two-dimensional submissions are preferred" I'm sure those granny square butterflies would be accepted. They aren't hugely 3-D like the big butterfly our GS troop made. We're probably the reason they added that! :rofl That thing had to be hung - it wasn't displayable any other way. :devil In comparison, the granny-square butterflies are pretty flat!

I, too, think this is a great cause! I told my husband about it and he said "Oh, I guess now we'll be seeing butterflies everywhere in the house!" LOL!

I just pictured folks cranking out those cute granny butterflies only to notice later when they go to the link to get the address, that there are dimensional limitations! :)

What does that mean that they want two dimensional? No crochet?

No, it doesn't mean no crochet. See this quote:

It says any medium, and only that flat is preferred. I'll go call the museum right now and confirm that crocheted butterflies will be accepted just to set everybody's mind at ease. I'll be right back.

I just spoke to the museum. Crocheted butterflies would "definitely be welcome." So please don't stress over the "2-D preferred" thing. They will definitely be accepted, and would be most welcome.

Hi! New to the 'ville. This sounds like a great project. I will pass it on to the Crochet ladies at my church. I'm sure we can send some. Nice to have something I can work on between major projects -- or when I need a break from something.

Thanks for clearing that up for me! What if I had my son color a few, do you think that would be acceptable?

I was thinking today that I should ask people to post pictures. Did you see in the instructions that they'd like people to send pictures of their donations? The email addy is there.

I'm one of the WWII Hidden Children and was hidden with a Catholic family in Antwerp, Belgium.

I was fortunate that my father survived but my mother died at Auschwitz.

Although I've never crocheted butterfiles before, I will definitely give it a try.

Thank you very much Happy Stitcher for bringing this to our attention.

Hugs,

Your butterflies are beautiful. I won't be able to start mine until sometime in June.

Happy crocheting!

So, sorry for the loss of your mother. I will think of her when I crochet more butterflies. And thank you and everyone for saying my butterflies are pretty. I am up to 45 butterflies, but plan to crochet some more.
