Every year between the end of November and early January we "yarnbomb" trees in the Bancroft Gardens and Holy Trinity churchyard in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, as we offer individuals and organisations the opportunity to celebrate the lives of their loved ones by dedicating a knitted or crochet square to a loved one's name. The squares are made into panels and the panels decorate the trees. The trees are not damaged by this and it provides a vibrant and eye-catching display in Stratford upon Avon's winter landscape. Each year the cut off date for inclusion in that year's project is 6th December.

Please don't forget to return to this page to add your bauble to your basket and check out in the usual way!
We also embellish the tree decoration with knitted stars and crochet baubles, and we love the connection with South Africa as the baubles are so reminiscent of the weaver bird nests!
After the event, we carefully pack up your bauble and send it to you, so you can enjoy it as part of your own Christmas decorations or even all year round in your home.
