Ten Years of Yarn Bombing

A new edition of yarnarchy launches this fall.

I’m pleased to announce that Mandy Moore and I have once again joined forces with Arsenal Pulp Press on Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti. (2009 and 2019)

In celebration of Yarn Bombing‘s 10th birthday and the fourth (!!!) printing of our book, Mandy and I have added a new foreword and chapter to the book in which we looked at what has transpired over the last ten years. You’ll find examples of work that we think demonstrates where the movement has gone, and interviews with new artists on where they think that the movement is going next. If you are a fan of the first edition, we hope that you’ll enjoy this second look at the movement.

The revised edition will be in bookstores on October 15, 2019. Ask your local indie bookstore to order it for you from our publisher, or if you can’t wait to see it and want to help us boost our pre-sales, you can pre-order from Amazon now.

For those of you in the Vancouver area, we’ll definitely be holding another party to celebrate! We hope that you’ll come knit, crochet and rejoice with us.
