Yarn bombing with wool and words in Kyogle
Kyogle's first Yarn Bombing Extravaganza organised by Graeme Gibson was a weaving of wool and words.
Starting at the Sugarbowl Cafe, residents performed poetry and stories surrounded by knitted installations on the trees and palms.
Further down Stratheden St, more textile installations delighted the crowds shopping at the farmer's market. The spinners at on the verandah of the library, spinning wool and discussing the government's postal plebiscite on same sex marriage.
CWA Kyogle Evening Branch invited onlookers including Kyogle Mayor Danielle Mulholland to knit one, purl one and add to the year-long community scarf they are creating.
Teresa Mason installed a Curtain of Tears textile art work to commemorate the Lismore floods.
With food, music by Peter Seagrave, activities for children, the park outside Kyogle Council Chambers was not only yarn bombed, the first speakers corner saw Ruth Haig give her rant about nuclear power.
