Yarn Bombing Los Angeles (YBLA) is a group of guerrilla knitters who have been collaborating since 2010 to stage public installations and performances to help expand the definition of public art to include self initiated, temporal urban interventions such as yarn bombing. All welcome at YBLA's monthly meetings every 3rd Saturday, 2-5pm at Craft and Folk Art Museum 5814 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90036
Join us at our community workshops for Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center on Saturdays 3/22, 4/26, and 5/3 to work on our upcoming exhibition! All workshops will be held at the center, located at 1560 Manhattan Beach Blvd., Manhattan Beach, CA. Click the image for full flyer information.
CALL FOR ENTRY! Join us for our latest community-based project, Put A Ring On It. Craft a ring using one of our patterns (or not), put it on something you really TREASURE, and submit a photo through our website.

Yarn Bombing Los Angeles would like to bid a fond farewell to its founder Arzu Arda Kosar and welcome Carol Zou as the new "Head Poncho" of YBLA activities. Arzu has been the main instigator, visionary, facilitator and producer of YBLA events since 2011. Arzu is now passing the torch on to Carol, who has been her main collaborator for CAFAM Granny Squared, to pursue her other interests. We thank Arzu for her vision, energy and dedication to activating YBLA and wish her the best for her future projects.
The YBLA catalog for the 18th Street Yarnbombing is now available on Amazon!
