As anyone who has driven along Foster Street in downtown Peabody the last few months can attest, we are really fiber crazy around here! The installation of our yarnbombing project (check out this video--http://vimeo.com/38590407), brought a new interest in knitting from a couple of very lovely young ladies. We took that inspiration, and developed a full week of textile related fun! Here is the info:
