Yarn Extravaganza 2016

Across Jefferson County

Yarn Extravaganza

Envision Jefferson County bursting with unexpected color as Tomorrow’s Hope, area Art Alliances and community organizations along with volunteer artisans yarn bomb their communities. Beginning in mid-July, trees lining Main Streets or other strategic locations will be decorated with lively knitted and crocheted wraps. Knitters or sponsors need to adopt their tree in advance.

Cost per tree is $100.

We plan to yarn bomb our communities on July 13, 2016, and the project will coincide with Hope Fest, July 15-16, 2016. Organizers hope to keep the tree installations up through October 10.

We are looking for donations of bright-colored yarn for the project – the brighter and more colorful, the better!

Sound like fun?
