Artist Althea Crome to Appear at Patrons Club Event!
I'm thrilled to introduce artist and IGMA Fellow Althea Crome as the featured guest at our next D. Thomas Miniatures Patrons Club event on Thursday, April 21 at 7pm ET. Althea is best known for her incredible micro-knit sweaters which double as masterful works of art. (Photo: Courtesy of Althea Crome).

Members will hear about Althea's journey as an artist and see some of her incredible work up close including her newest piece – a 1/12th scale hand-knit sweater (pictured at top) with over 50,000 individual stitches inspired by work by Vincent Van Gogh. The piece will make its formal debut at the upcoming Tom Bishop International Show in Chicago, later this month.
We'll also have a frank discussion about the continued struggle artists have to encourage folks to understand and acknowledge miniatures as works of fine art. This promises to be a wonderful event!
Current members can expect a link in the next few days. Not a member? Learn more about joining the D.
