Saugerties is rolling out the Red Carpet to welcome NYS S&W visitors when they kick off the weekend at the Indie Untangled Trunk Show at SPAF on Friday, October 19.

To help provide a colorful welcome to the Village we invite you to join us in yarn bombing all the parking meters in Saugerties!  Installation of yarn décor will begin on the 1st Friday of October.

There are plenty of poles for everyone to participate! Pole number assignments will be given out from the Shop; please call  (845) 246-2876 to reserve yours.

The parking meter poles are all 9 ¼ inches around and the poles are between 34 and 36 inches from the ground to the working parts of the parking meter.  The working parts of the meters must remain visible and accessible.

There are no rules~ designs may be simple, complex or whatever, just have fun! (Acrylic yarn is recommended, as these installations will be subject to the weather.)

So Get Busy! And stay tuned as we assemble our our squadron of yarn artists!

All yarn bombing will be removed by end of October.

For additional inspiration, we invite you to take a stroll down memory lane and revisit our community yarn bombing efforts at Clermont~ click Here. Or Here for more photos of yarn bombed trees and poles, and Here for a Yarn Bombing demonstration.
