You too can be part of this great Arts & Crafts Festival in Lincolnshire. I’ll be hooking up some stripes this weekend. Why not join us?!

‘Plank 2013’ Yarnbomb installation – Market Rasen MR BIG Arts & Crafts Festival 2 Feb-2 March.

Below is an introduction to the Festival.   I’m hoping to create a colourful knitted display in the town centre.  MR BIG has done amazing work to bring the community of Market Rasen together.

The kinds of things that will be available to be decorated are: lamposts, bench seats, bollards, images and measurements available if you email me.  Anything with stripes would be fantastic.   Oh and in case you’re wondering, the ‘Rasen’ of Market Rasen comes from an Anglo Saxon word meaning ‘planks’ hence the title of the festival!

If you would rather go ‘off piste’, there’s a tree to hang things from and countless shop door handles that would love to be adorned with knitted treasures!

Finally….thanks so much for taking part and please…
