A yarn bombing is not usually something you announce before the fact in the local newspaper, but Bridgeton, N.J., knitter Carol Moore says she wants help beautifying her city’s downtown with yarn.
She participated in a yarn bombing for International Yarn Bombing Day, which was back in June, and in the time since the tree in front of her shop has become increasingly covered with knit and crocheted pieces.
She says she things more fiber art around downtown would improve the look of the area and give it something unique and special that hopefully would drive more visitors and customers to the area.
Moore has the blessing of mayor Albert Kelly, who called is an easy way to beautify the town that isn’t permanent (he also says it does no damage to the tree, but it can if left on long-term).
