Originally MMMM was created over the spring and summer of 2009, through an ever-changing series of community events around Seattle, ultimately adding up to more than 30 crochet sessions around the city. This page was originally created to facilitate participation in those events, as they evolved.
Now that MMMM is an on-going project, moving to various communities around the country, the crochet events happen in and around when it is installed. If you want to keep track of when the project is installed and when you can crochet for the installation, follow MMMM on Twitter Follow @matermatrix
I keep this original text from 2009 up on the site as an archive of how the project was created!

My husband and I are possibly coming up your way toward the end of June, and if it all works out, I’d be interested in doing a workshop. We’ll only be there for a few days, so I’ll keep checking back to see if you’ve added a workshop between June 27 and July 3.
Otherwise, do you ever come to LA to do workshops or show your work? If so, you’re always welcome to stay at our house!
I will probably not be having many more events near the end of June, but I will be doing a residency in the park where the piece will be installed, and may as need be, invite people to come crochet with me there. I’ll be crocheting the river into the trees at that point. But lets be in touch about getting together!
