International Yarn Bombing Day [Australia] - with Lights In Winter festival

Saturday, June 11 2011 · 12:00pm - 3:00pm
Federation Square, Melbourne, Australia
Cnr Flinders Street & Swanston Street
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Federation Square will play host to the 'Lights In Winter' festival for the month of June. A giant structure incorporating lights, lanterns, snowflakes and yarn bombing will be set up for all to see. This will be up for the whole month.

But why not come along on June 11th for International Yarn Bombing Day and see yarn bombing in person. Bring your yarn and knitting needles/crochet hooks/knitting looms and meet others that love this hobby. Never done it before? Come and talk to yarn bombers in person including Bali of Twilight Taggers, and Dee and Aysen of Knit Wits.

In the event of rain, this get-together will meet inside the Time Out Cafe at Federation Square.

Feel free to bring your friends and family along. See you there!

If you would like to be a part of yarn bombing this structure, please leave a comment so I can give you the details or email


  1. Hi I have made a post about this on my blog too... can't wait to get started on something tomorrow.. I know I have some white or blue wool at home and will be out buying more on Saturday.♥

  2. Excellent thanks. Try and go more for the reds/oranges/yellows as Bruce wants more of that, but whites and blues are okay but not too much.

    Have fun making it!

  3. HI there! Sorry to post here, I couldn't find an email for you. You (among a few others) have totally inspired me to bomb! :) I put together a blog post that will go live tomorrow. I did borrow your yarn gun photo, I did link back to you along with a few other links to your site! I am totally stoked. If you'd rather me not use the photo please just let me know. My email is or you can see the blog tomorrow here:

  4. Hi. My email is in my profile [] but thanks for posting here. :)
    That's so great that you've decided to get into yarn bombing. It's such a fun thing to do. Did you read my "How To" guide?
    That yarn gun photo isn't mine. I think I found it on flickr? So yeah perhaps take the credit off your blog seeing as it's not really mine. Just in case the owner gets crabby.
    Good luck with all your yarn bombing and make sure you share photos on my facebook page [] if you have facebook. :)

  5. Thanks! I'll remove the link just in case :) I did read your How To, that's how I got the itch ;) Can't wait!

  6. Have fun but I warn you : it's addictive! :p
