Yarn Bombing: ‘Maker Day’ at Bill Library

Artisans, crafters and hobbyists demostrated their skills during a Maker Day event at the Bill Library, Saturday, July 22, in Ledyard, Conn. The library started its maker program about two years ago and holds monthly hands-on classes.

One of the tables at Saturday’s event raised awareness of yarn-bombing, which part-time library employee Marilyn Baseler of Ledyard described as “urban art ... like graffiti.”

Baesler told local newspaper, The Day, that this year the library collected “miles and miles of knit strips people made and brought in, then wound them around benches and columns in town.” Saturday’s event, Baseler told The Day, was a chance to get even more people involved.
