When the cards are completed, they are displayed and sold at events and businesses throughout the area. The public will be able to see and purchase the cards inside Dewey’s Digs at today’s (Nov. 8) Second Saturday Art Walk from 3 to 6 p.m.


Crocheted animals keep Duarte busy

Ginger Duarte is covered in her creations, which also covers much of the available space in her home.

Ginger Duarte is in her house, surrounded by pigs and elephants and octopi and owls. Chickens roost on a counter, next to fat round fish, a round-eyed monkey and a five-segmented caterpillar — all of which she made by hand, stitch by crocheted stitch.

“I’ve always liked my owls,” she said when trying to pick a favorite. “But I like my chickens, and ‘Snake,’ and the trees. And my alien. And the pink elephant. Everyone, in their lifetime, should see at least one pink elephant.”

She will be among the artisans at the annual Community Christmas Bazaar, Nov. 15, at the Azalea Middle and Brookings-Harbor High schools.
