And now for something completely different-

Very tasteful addition to a tree in Edinburgh

A different approach to a tree in Mussleburgh, complete with pom poms

Love the flowers on the tree trunk!

Yarn bombing in Edinburgh at the St. James’ Center and a slew of yarn bombs in Mussleburgh.

Thanks to Louisa and Marianne for the photos!

Yarn bombing in Wiesbaden, Germany.

Thank you Marianne, for this gorgeous photograph of a tree in Weisbaden, Germany. I think this would have to be a group effort as there is so much knitting, and over such a large area, beautifully done. An inspirational piece of art, that enlivens and brightens up the city street.

 

 

This is an  invite to everybody to send me any images they have of yarn bombing- and say if it’s something you have seen or done yourself! 

Next upcoming drop-in session-Thursday August 24th, 6-8 pm

On July 28th, we had our July drop-in session at the Revolution Mill for the Hirsch Wellness Network.

Many thanks to Clara for her weaving expertise, to Janice for her invaluable help with our knitters and to Nona who helped organize everyone!

The start of a miniature tapestry

Our next session will be on August 24th, in the evening. See you all there!

Looms available for those who want to join us!

We are starting drop-in monthly fiber art classes, starting on May 19, 1-3 pm, at the Historic Revolutionary Mill, suite 1250, in the Hirsch Wellness classroom 130 Revolutionary Mill Drive in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Many of our tapestry students enjoyed weaving alongside their fellow students at our personal tapestry weaving workshops, getting support, encouragement and inspiration from each other . However,we have found that once a year is a long time to wait between tapestry sessions, especially if you have any technical concerns and have no one to ask for help.

The drop-in sessions are designed to bridge the gap between the once a year tapestry workshop, to get friends together again, and to keep everyone motivated to complete projects and start new ones!

I will be available to help with tapestry weaving and knitting and tapestry looms, yarns and knitting needles are all provided by the Hirsch Wellness Network.

I love the idea of the drop-in classes ! It gives me the opportunity to meet up with everyone again, see everyone’s progress and I get to enjoy seeing some of the finished pieces!
