Our first project is coming up. AspectOriginal and Knit 1 Oxford are yarn bombing the Boys and Girls Club of Oxford April 11th. We're gonna be wrapping trees, fences and poles around their facilities. There is a fundraiser tomorrow, March 30th, at the club, and such to help with costs for the organization and upcoming projects. AspectO will be there to help support and do some scouting for the yarn bomb project. It would be awesome to see some students there and any ideas for the April 11th project would be welcome and appreciated.
Other news, we have reserved the Union Pavilion April 28th for the "Elements of Oxford Festival". So far we have some of the guys from Bad Lieutenants playing and a number of others we're waiting to hear back from for music. Tables will be set up for local companies and organizations like our good friends at Knit 1 Oxford, and the Main Squeeze. I'm hoping to get in touch with others like Yokna Bottom Farms, Amelia's crafts store, Gone Fishing pet shop, and more. There will be crafts tables and product samples from all the stores, shops and restaurants. I'm really looking forward to the event. Should be fun. I'll post updates so check back.
