The Yarnbombers will begin working at the 100 block of State Street installation Friday, April 26, around noon. The art will be ready by the following day for Kinetic Derby Day.

The group will also be a part of the Jasper Project Artisan Village on State Street the day of the festival from 11 a.m to 3 p.m. Members of the group will teach participants how to crochet and knit simple items like pom poms.
