Yarn It Forward is a community yarn art project to teach about East Lawrence, crocheting, and yarn techniques.

East Ninth Artist projects are funded by an ArtPlace America grant and are supported by The Lawrence Arts Center and the East Lawrence Neighborhood Association.

“Knitting has a profound connective power. The culture and people and rituals around it, the values, they all contribute to an immediate and profound trust in one another. It's home. You belong and are accepted, which rings true no matter where you are.”
