  3. It was on a old morning too, so I'm sure he appreciated the scarf - for the half an hour it was on before it was stolen.

  4. \i really like this idea of yarn bombing. but a thought that keeps me from joining is money wastage. Is it really responsible of us to spend money and time on yarn bombs when the same money and time could be spent on making sweaters for the homeless or orphaned children? I cant say I wont smile when I see a street lamp yarn bombed, but I do think one with such beautiful talent and creativity is probably an intelligent enough person to use their talents in a earth and humanity friendly way.

  5. I can understand where you're coming from but actually yarn bombing is a creative street art and not a waste of time or money. I can't speak for other yarn bombers but for Yarn Corner [which is the world's largest yarn bombing group that I founded last year] - we donate a percentage of our commission project profits to a crafts based charity for those in need, called KOGO, which you can learn about here: http://www.knitonegiveone.org/kogo.php?page=aboutus

  6. We're combining our work into a charity fundraiser for two amazing causes at this end.

    Obviously, we had to get prior permission of the building in question's manager, as it would be unethical to ask people to do something knowing it to be technically illegal, but having got permission puts it above board.

    In our case, the work will come down again at the end of the day and at this point, will either be converted into small gift items and auctioned (again in aid of our two charities) or held over to be displayed once more elsewhere, before the auctioning phase.

    By diversifying projects there's really no need for any waste or negative impact of any kind really - makes it win-win all round.

  8. Experience the thrill of outdoor laser tag skirmish in a new and exciting way.
    It’s an ideal activity for kids and teenagers birthday parties!
    Our Crew will arrive at least 15 minutes before your party starts to establish
    the playing area and set up the equipment.
