Hello all.  After seeing several people respond to this project
 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231551.0 with comments about how the Mississippi River changes from top to bottom and some suggestions for collaboration on a river project it occurred to me that a craft-along that we work on together would be really cool.

It would be exciting to see what we could come up with given the common thread of the river.  Some ideas that have occurred to me are

  • A day/week along the river
  • literally using a common thread or material (such as river water or found objects or even the same kind of thread)

 
To make it potentially more interesting, I have a connection with a festival that takes place on the Missouri River near the confluence with the Mississippi in August (Hey we're all part of the same purchase here so lets include the MO and IL and the OH rivers so that everyone can play).  The festival and canoe and kayak races are designed to raise awareness of the rivers and raise funds for clean water projects in the St Louis area.  A project like this would certainly show how we are all connected to the river.  I can arrange for the work to be displayed at the festival.  (The theme of the festival is River Lore: Past and Present so fitting that in would make it a little easier to justify.)

The technical difficulty would be getting the art here and getting it returned to each artist (unless we could do things that could be donated and sold at the festival to support the Race for the Rivers). 

So... What do you all think?  Is anyone interested?  I am open to suggestions and ideas for how to make something like this happen.
