What does this cost and who is helping?

It all began with Amanda our outreach coordinator for Fiberart International 2013 produced by the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh.  Amanda had this idea to “yarn-bomb” the Warhol Bridge and Knit the Bridge was born.  As  our technical adviser Norman Beck says, “this is an industrial project”;  so it takes time to plan in order to ensure […]
