Today was the first “Stitch-in” in preparation for the upcoming Yarn Bombing in June in Downtown Salt Lake, sponsored by the Utah Arts Festival (uaf.org).
Many generous, kind souls donated yarn, needles, and even a knitting machine! How awesome is that?!
There also was a table full of delicious goodies from some of the best local bakeries and even handmade yumminess from the stitchers themselves. There was also a news crew filming us for a story for tonight’s news program and the newspaper was there taking photos for the paper.
Many new friends and projects were made today thanks to the efforts of the UAF putting together this event. It was fabulous! There will be a Stitch-in once a month every month until the Yarn Bombing in June. Locations, dates, and times will be announced.
