Submit by August 23, 2024

Fiber artists, share in the magic of making as we create an enchanted forest of handcrafted art. Classes and meetups will be available to help collaborate on pieces from suggested patterns. Contributors are also encouraged to submit creations of their own design.

Yarnfiti is an annual community-created art installation. This year, in addition to knitting and crochet, contributors are invited to submit projects from a variety of crafts including, sewing, embroidery, weaving and more! All submissions must be accompanied by a submission form. Projects must be received at an Orange County Library System location by closing on August 23, 2024 or brought to the Yarnfiti Installation Party on September 12, 2024 from 3p.m. to 6 p.m.
