We are very blessed to have available the artistry of Elizabeth Bame, and her continued support of the efforts of The Beehive International. Elizabeth graduated from Andrews University with an Associate Degree in Commercial Art, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. Her career in graphic design brought her to Atlanta in 1990 where she accepted her continued position as Art Director for Soundview Publications. A few years after moving to Atlanta, Elizabeth began her studies with artist Chris DiDomizio at DiDomizio Old World Art Studio. She has been in numerous juried shows, won several awards, and was selected for the Red Cinder Artist-in-Residence program in 2003.

Crochet by Michelle Fontaine
I am the creator of this website and The Beehive Haiti newsletters, and have known the Euler family for 20+ years, and wanted to find ways to support them. I taught myself crochet last year purely to make shawls for the elderly. The shawls are particularly useful to those in wheelchairs, hospital and chemo patients. I was inspired by this comment on the page where I found my first pattern: “I’m blessed with a husband that is a cancer survivor, so I’m using your wonderful pattern to make some brightly colored wraps to wear during chemo. It gets really cold while you’re waiting, and this pattern doesn’t get in the way.” I hope you will purchase a shawl to support The Beehive, and I hope you will then gift it to someone in need. Thank you!
