“Bridge for Blankets” brings back the warm and fuzzy in community!

The Burnside Bridge is  ready to open… It was 1926.

Today, Candy Babel wants to give a well-deserved shout-out to our friend Tyler Mackie, a local fiber artist, who is helping put on a wonderful event in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Broadway Bridge  this coming PDX Bridge Festival in August. Four 18' x 21' knitted banners, knitted by volunteers, will be hung off the side of the bridge celebrating the anniversary. After the event, the banners will be turned into blankets for the homeless. The yarn is donated wool from Cascade Yarns. Learn more about the event here:

This is exactly the kind of event that helps the world become a sweeter place! If you are interested in helping out, or knitting for “Bridge for Blankets”, you can email Tyler at .

Thanks Claudia for bringing this cool event to our attention!
