Here is information about the Piano Knit Bombing that Annette is putting together!! We are collecting ANY PINK yarn at the shop. Also, if you want to help you can join them on the dates below.
Here is the info about the piano the Yarnburners are going to be covering:
The Yarnburners are a group of central Indiana knit graffiti (“yarnbombing”) artists. We enjoy beautifying and bringing attention to the beauty in everyday objects by dressing them in knit, crochet, and weaved yarns.
We will be fitting an upright piano with a custom-made yarn wrap for the Women’s Fund of Central Indiana’s GO Ahead & Play pop-up pianos public art project http://www.womensfund.org/go-ahead-play .
The overall theme of our installation will be “Tickled Pink, Tickling the Ivories,” and the main colors of the knitted/crocheted work will be various joyous shades of pink! The choice of colors was made to symbolize women and honor their vibrancy and strength, while at the same time inviting passersby to smile, gather together, and maybe even sit and play for a while!
We have three workshop times set up in the next couple of weeks:
TODAY: Tuesday April 30 from 5-7 pm
Thursday May 9 from 6-8 pm
Saturday May 11 from 10 am-3 pm
Bring: knitting needles or crochet hooks and a folding chair. We have some yarn, but bring any stash you want to contribute and/or knit with.
Completed pianos will be placed around Indianapolis in August, for the public to enjoy and interact with.
The workspace where the piano is being housed is at 5358 W 38th St, Indianapolis (in Honey Creek Plaza at 38th and Moller Rd.). The space has been donated, so when you see a “for lease” sign and white-papered windows, you’ll know you’re in the right place! It’s between Machu Picchu and the tepanaki place.

Thanks for helping spread the word! I’m attaching a picture of our piano as it looks right now.
P.S. The Trusted Mentors house is coming along nicely. We are almost to our desired number of siding (4″x4′) and we just need a few more of the shingles (6″x6″). Thanks again for all your contributions. If you still want to help, just come by the shop, get some yarn and knit or crochet a square!
