The Prairie YarnStormers are the artists for Yarnover Enid. Their mission is to create public art from yarn and to delight the community.
We chose to be YarnStormers instead of YarnBombers. Even though Oklahoma did have a terrible bombing event on April 19, 1995, she is far more noted for storms. And even though some of those are also terrible, the storms created by this group will be whirlwinds of color, not devastation! The results are the same regardless of what it is called!
“As knitting has become more fashionable, yarn bombing has weaved its way around the world.” reported the BBC in August of 2012. One onlooker said, “It brightens up everybody’s day and it shows knitting and crocheting to be a different kind of craft than your granny did.” Another quipped, “I think it is grand, it brings a bit of life, something a bit different. Mind you there is plenty of spice anyway here, but this is grand.”
