Knitting Us Together
A Mill Valley Community Project – Brought to you by the Mill Valley Arts Commission

Project Overview:
Knitting Us Together is back for 2022 by popular demand! The Mill Valley Arts Commission (MVAC) is launching a public art project on the Mill Valley Downtown Plaza in an effort to create public art that brings our entire community together.

Everyone can participate, everyone can enjoy the installation by walking through or driving by the Plaza. This will be a temporary installation and is commonly called “Urban Knitting.” It will involve temporarily, and safely, covering some of the trees in the plaza with knit or crocheted patches of yarn and flowers.

Activation Date:
We plan to launch the Art Installation on August 27, 2022. It will remain up through October.

How you can get involved:
We would love to involve all in the community who would like to participate. If you would like to become involved, please knit or crochet a 12 inch square or rectangle (rectangular pieces should not exceed 12 inches in height.) The color theme is to be International Orange, Marin Blue & Forest Green. However, if you don’t have those colors – make something anyway! Nothing will be turned away!

If you don’t like to knit or crochet – you can also finger crochet the flowers that will also be used in the project. Here, a smooth yarn works better than a furry one. Here is a video that shows you how to make one: How to Finger Crochet a Flower. Materials deadline extended to Monday, August 15th.

Easy drop-off at the Mill Valley Community Center:
A convenient drop box will be located inside the lobby of the Mill Valley Community Center, 180 Camino Alto, Mill Valley. You may drop off your knitted piece Monday – Friday between 8:30am – 5:00pm.
