The Remembering Tree – Yarn Bombing Stratford on Avon
I learned of this lovely project back in October and have been eagerly awaiting the ‘yarnbomb’ appearing today, the 1st December. It looks amazing in the centre of the Bancroft Gardens in Stratford upon Avon.
Described as ‘A place to reflect on all the colours of life – a focal celebration of the ones we love’. The project is an initiative of GAGA UK – Goodwill & Growth for Africa UK
The tree has been wrapped with 1500 granny squares made by women in South Africa from poor communities. The idea is to get sponsorship for each square for which you can also dedicate the square to someone special.
