Greerton Village Yarn Bombing Competition

Register now for the Greerton Village Community Yarn Bombing 2020!

Theme: Aotearoa/New Zealand. What it means to you!

Open section and school section | win cash for your favourite charity | register now to secure your tree and order wool!

$2500 of prize money up for grabs!

This year the judges will take into consideration the number of people who have worked on a sleeve. Hopefully it will encourage groups to do more tree sleeves or people to create their own sleeve. We would really love to have 50 yarn bombed sleeves this year. Help us by encouraging friends and family who can knit, crochet and weave to create a tree.

There is also a school section 2020. Schools we would love to have you on board!
