POSTPONED! Due to thunderstorm activity in NYC today, the event in Union Square is cancelled. We will announce a rain date shortly.
If you’re in New York City on Sunday, June 28th, drop by Union Square between 11am-4pm and add a small swatch of knitting or crochet to our mystery yarnbomb! We’ll be there with world-famous yarnbomber London Kaye Crochet, who is delightful in the latest episode of Tea With Shira #5:

You can make your swatch before hand if you like — our StitchFinder has some great knit and crochet patterns for small blocks, flowers and motifs — OR you can knit or crochet a little something on the spot. We’ll have lots of yarn, hooks and needles for you to take advantage of.
Some ideas from StitchFinder:
|Knit Small Leaf||Crochet Octagon Motif|
Can’t knit or crochet? No problem! Representatives from Yarndevu, a community of knitters and crocheters who meet in person and learn from each other, will be on hand to teach you how! Eager to learn before then? Sign up on Yarndevu now and connect with a local knitter or crocheter eager to teach!
Who: You, London Kaye Crochet, Lion Brand Yarn and Brand Ambassador Shira Blumenthal will all be there!
What: We’re crowdsourcing a yarnbomb and we want you to contribute! Bring a small swatch of knitting or crochet, free-form or based on a pattern, and add it to our big yarnbomb!
