2012 for Twilight Taggers and Yarn Corner

So... 24 days into the New Year and I finally have a moment to sit down, rearrange the blog and post something worthy of reading. This year I will try to update this thing more often than I did last year.


Things got very busy very quickly after International Yarn Bombing Day and the formation of Yarn Corner. To date, in less than 8 months, we went from starting the group with 3 whole people, to 207 members from all over the world! I just wanted a stitch and bitch group for yarn bombers in Melbourne. I had no idea what was in store for me. I didn't know that I would end up working 4 days with 10 hour shifts at my "professional job", so it meant I have three days off a week to manage YC. I didn't think that we'd be needing four admins to make sure YC ran smoothly. And I certainly didn't think we'd be pulling off such amazing projects like we have so far. Every day I'm pleasantly surprised by how well the group is doing, the recognition it's getting but mostly how much fun everyone is having with their yarn bombing.

If you want to join Yarn Corner, then please go here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/157893757611209/ and request to join. We'll accept your request generally within a few hours. Or to see what we've been up to then go here: http://www.facebook.com/yarncorner .


My own yarn bombing works [Twilight Taggers] got put on the back foot while we were establishing Yarn Corner but in February I'll be taking holidays from work and traveling to Sydney and Brisbane to do some personal yarn bombing for an event I'm calling the East Coast Yarn Storm. You'll be able to follow my progress here on my blog or on my Twilight Taggers facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/twilighttaggers and you can see the event details here: http://www.facebook.com/events/208579362554405/ .

So bring on 2012! It's going to be a stellar year!

Luv Bali.
