Mobile-Sewing-Unit

At August 5th the Light Rider had yet another chance to prove its awesomeness even without light. Thea (näh & werk studio) and C3MY (yarn throwies) loaded the Light Rider with a sewing machine, chairs, mats and materials and rode it to Alexanderplatz. At the spot we set up our small open air sewing workshop including an old Singer sewing machine powered by the Light Riders batteries. Accompanied by music from the bikes sound system a dozen kids and grown-ups joined in in sewing mushroom and monster shaped yarn throwies for the rest of the afternoon.

International Yarn Bombing Day

A shout-out to all our yarn bombing friends out there.  We celebrated the day with some local Berlin knitters, decorating the street architecture in Kreuzberg, close to Kottbusser Tor.

GRL Germany member C3MY even invented the ‘Yarn Bomb Throwie’ for the occasion … instructable to follow.  More Pics
