Yarn-fest at HedFest – Knitters wanted!

Yarn bombed tree-001

Yarn-Fest on Market Hill, Hedon during HedFest last year.

“A PRETTY TOWN!” will be the lasting impression of Hedon that first-time visitors will get after taking part in HedFest16 in the summer.

Hedon is a beautiful place regardless, but during the Hedon Festival 2016, on the Friday evening 12th August and Saturday 13th August, it will be decorated in brightly coloured wool and cloth bunting. Trees, lamp posts, railings and the streets will be ‘dressed’ splendidly for the occasion.

But if we are to achieve the desired look for the town, we will need more volunteer knitters to make the wool squares, triangles, shapes and pom poms – and people who can sew all the creations together.

If you can knit, crochet or sew and would like to volunteer to help us with this yarn-fest, then please leave your details below (contact form, emailed privately) and we will contact you with more information.

Some volunteers are already busy knitting and your completed work can be left with Camille at the Yorkshire Mobility Shop, 22 New Road, Hedon.
