Remember the yarn bomb in downtown Yonkers from last summer?

More specifically this huge American yarn flag?

The Yonker’s Mayor’s Office loved the yarn flag installation we did last year so much, that they invited us back for the Fourth of July weekend!

Join the Hudson River Museum and myself on Sunday, June 28th from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM in Van Der Donck Park for a whirlwind morning yarn bomb! We’ll be weaving yarn through the bridge railings to recreate the American Flag from last year’s exhibit. No knitting or crochet skills required. If you have a friend that’s always wanted to join a yarn bomb, but doesn’t knit (yet), bring them along! We need lots of helping hands to weave yarn, tie knots, measure and, inevitably, detangle yarn, etc.

The Museum will be supplying the yarn. I recommend bringing sunscreen, a water bottle, and quarters for parking. We’re hoping that the rain will hold out until later in the afternoon. We’ll be working in Van Der Donck Park in downtown Yonkers. It’s a beautiful new park with the Saw Mill River running right through it. The closest street address is 5 Buena Vista Ave, Yonkers, NY which is the Metro North station. We’ll be working in the middle of the park on the pedestrian bring crossing the river.

Our raindate is on Monday, June 29th from 3:00-6:00 PM, but fingers-crossed that we don’t need it.

Please post here (or send me a message) if you’re interested in coming. I hope to see you there!
