Anonymous asked:We are a non profit interested in a "Yarn Bombing" event to promote awareness of our cause. Some questions asked: What happens when it rains? How long do they stay up? Have there been issues with town government? Thanks for any info/input/ help you can offer. J
The tags eventually get a little gross in the rain/ snow, but we’ve found using non-natural fibers helps the colors stay brighter for longer ( like acrylic yarn). We haven’t had much trouble in our area. In fact many people have stopped to thank us for what we do. That being said, even in our very accepting community we’ve had our work taken down. That’s just part of the risk with public art. Our little calling cards are also taken a lot. We make cards with card stock and packing tape then zip tie them to our pieces and they still get taken almost every time. We’ve thought about making fabric calling cards and just sewing them onto the piece to prevent this.
What is your non-profit? What area are you based in?
Hope that helps!
