Yarnbombing of Jimmy Valentine's

Who - You! Me! Everyone we know!

What - Cover the facade (and marquee) of Jimmy Valentines with knit hearts. Size to be determined by you but preferably ranging from 6″-26″ (and preferably in the colors of red/white/pink).

When - NOW! Seriously. NOW. Start knitting! This is going be their part of Artventures on H St which is a cool event for H street NE. (I mean it’s all about art and food and who doesn’t like that?)

Where- Jimmy Valentines is located at 1103 Bladensburg Rd. NE Washington DC 20002. It has no sign. Really. That’s part of its charm.

Front of Jimmy Valentine's

Why - Because, to the best of our knowledge, there has never been a yarnbombing of this size in DC. This place is really rad and I can’t imagine a better pairing.

Once you’ve completed a heart (and told your friends) you are welcome to drop them off at Jimmy Valentines (1103 Bladensburg Rd. NE) or Little Miss Whiskey’s (1104 H street NE DC).

Please don’t keep this a secret! Tell your friends! Enlist your aunts! Let’s cover this building with yarn!
