Maidenhead Town Show is having a yarn bombing campaign, aiming to decorate the town with colourful knitted and crocheted items. Five GoodGymers rose to the challenge and got out their hooks, needles and spare yarn, and started creating! Claire, Hannah, Nicola, Gillian, Amanda and Sheila created sea creatures, a bucket and spade, granny squares, flowers and pom poms, which will all be used to decorate columns, railings and post boxes around the town centre, together with creations from other local knitting and crochet groups. For anyone who would like to help put up some of the creations, sign up for Wednesday's session here

What a creative and talented bunch you are! I bumped into Deborah's husband this morning and he was really touched to know that GoodGym are involved in the yarn bombing. Well done! x
