The Clintonville Yarn Bomber (CYB) started sprucing up their neighborhood with colorful ‘fiber art’ installations in 2016. Since then, the artist’s work has garnered city-wide attention and the bomber, who prefers to remain anonymous, has a growing community of fans and admirers who commission works for their own homes and businesses.

The CYB now wants to bring the whole neighborhood in on the fun with Clintonville Stitchmas! This new holiday-themed project will be a community yarn bomb created from simple granny squares contributed by anyone and everyone who wants to help. No experience is necessary and all are welcome to participate. If you are interested in participating, please complete this brief interest form so we know how to get in touch, and we’ll keep you updated on the project. This project is not limited to Clintonville, so please feel free to share this info far and wide so everyone can join in on the fun!


I am interested in participating!
