Yarnfiti Community Art Project
Lend your knitting and crocheting skills to Yarnfiti, the Orange County Library System's annual community art project. Since 2017, fiber artists throughout Central Florida have donated knitted and crocheted items to create large art installations. Discover the fun of collaborating with other fiber arts to create an undersea world out of yarn. Design your own element or use any pattern to contribute your talent to our annual community art installation.
