Behind the Scenes: What I’m Currently Doing with the Vines

Hello hello!!

Today, I’m going to be giving all of you a little peak into my studio at what I am doing with the vines as I am receiving them. The past week has been filled with lots of packages of beautiful vines! Also, I befriended the people who work at the post office because they will be seeing a lot of me for the next few weeks! Here is just a glimpse of what how I am cataloging the vines!

When each vine is received, I make a little tag for it with the name of the creator. If that person submitted more than one, the vines are numbered.

When each vine is received, I make a little tag for it with the name of the creator. If that person submitted more than one, the vines are numbered.

Whenever I get a new package, I create one of those little tags for it and input the information from the index card into a spreadsheet that details what each vine looks like, who made it and what city/state/country it is from. I am also going to be photographing each vine individually so that I can pair a picture of each vine with the person who made it, but until then they all have the names attached!


This is the tallest vine I have received so far! For reference, I am 5’2″. Over the next few weeks, I will be measuring each vine and recording that information in a spiffy little spreadsheet.

It has been pretty exciting to see the wide variety in lengths, colors, yarn weight and textures that each person has used to create a vine! I love opening each package and seeing a new, unique vine!

There has been a ton of variety in the vines!


All of the vines are currently hanging from my ceiling while I work through how I want to display them in the exhibition.

This is the equivalent of “sketching” as I am working through how to display the vines.


My lovely ladder because I lack the height to move the vines around without it

The index cards are currently being stored in a box until I find the right book to use to display them. This has been an exciting week! I can’t wait to see all of the new vines that will come in!

Over the past few weeks, I have been able to teach several friends and family how to crochet – which has been great! If you live in Richmond, keep your eyes open in the next few days because I will be announcing the date of a meet up where people in the city can learn to crochet! Look for announcement in the next week or so about that!
