Wanderlove: A Stitch in Time
The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History has teamed up with the Massey Cancer Center, Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce, Danville Parks and Rec, the River District Association, the Dan River Basin Association as well as many other civic organizations, on one of the largest and most ambitious community knit projects in the region.
This fiber, knitting & crocheting collaboration by the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History, recognizes the building of community found within the age-old practice of gathering to assemble fabric and knitted pieces in small groups. This interactive winter community project, produced from January through June, celebrates and reflects people’s many different backgrounds and experiences. Participants are invited to collaborate in the making of a "Yarn Bombing" installation along the Danville Riverwalk, and share their COVID19 stories.
Visitors participating from home are invited to create their own assembled yarn covering, using materials you have on hand – T-shirt fabric, thread, and recycled sweaters! Knitted, crocheted and constructed fabric contributions will be added to our "WANDERLOVE: A Stitch in Time" Yarn Bomb installation in the summer months of July 4 – September 26, 2021 creating an assembled reflection of the community in bright, joyful colors.
