That video is from Kickstarter.com, where West Seattle artist Claire Renaut is hoping to raise $2,500 for her tribute project, “9/11 Knit.” Even if you think you’ve seen and heard enough about art projects paying tribute – you probably haven’t seen/heard anything like this. We certainly haven’t. It’s worth a minute to take a look, whether you consider donating or not. It’s still a work in progress, and if all goes well, it will be displayed at a Seattle space this November. Claire’s husband Tom e-mailed the tip about what she’s working on; her studio is at their home in the California/Charlestown vicinity.
Also today, we have updates on the slate of West Seattle events planned for the anniversary on Sunday, starting with the 1,000-paper-cranes effort at Providence Mount St. Vincent:

Jessica Fletcher at The Mount says they’ve reached their goal: “Our Café is colorfully decorated with all the cranes and we will be presenting them at our Remembrance on Sunday at 1 pm in the Chapel followed by a reception with dessert.” Their event is part of the growing list that we have been updating here – including a new addition today: The Admiral Theater is offering free matinee admission on Sunday to police and firefighters and their families.
