Come see the Graffiti Knitting at the library (and around town)!

Come see the knit graffiti around Newfields – check out displays at the library, Main Street Art, the Country Store, and the elementary school! More information about Womenade is available in the library. “The Mitten” by Jan Brett inspired the knitting for our town.

What is this all about? Here is the press release:

Exeter, NH, March 28th, 2014 – It’s a craze called graffiti knitting and ‘tag’it for Womenade is striking again on April 1.For the last few months, women and men from all over have been busy crocheting and knitting getting ready to “tag” the public libraries in SAU 16.

“It is street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn on things like trees, street signs, railings and even library book return boxes,” explained Kari Lazerowich, Womenade Board Member. Volunteers are coming out on the morning of April 1st to decorate the local public libraries with their handiwork. The library knitting groups at each library took inspiration from a children’s book and created imaginative yarn graffiti to decorate each building. In addition to adorning the libraries Womenade has also created ‘tag’it passports for kids (and kids at heart) to pick up at their local library.  The passports are then stamped for visiting the libraries, viewing the knit-graffiti and reading the books that inspired the knit-graffiti.
