​Yarn Harbor’s Warm Up the City Distribution Event

Yarn Harbor’s Warm Up the City event was held on February 4, 2017, to distribute donated hats, mittens, and scarves around Duluth. Modeled after a similar event in Edmonton, Canada, Warm Up the City makes warm clothing available to those in need by “yarn bombing” areas with colorful accessories. 

We distributed over 500 hats, scarves, and mittens all over Duluth! Check out the coverage on WDIO news and KBJR news.

Keep crafting for next year's event!
