Nicole was interviewed by our city’s main paper, The Windsor Star. They called me for an interview too, but I declined. The article can be read here:

A few weeks ago, I saw an article from WAMM (Windsor Art & Music Monthly) about our yarn bombing. It’s pretty tiny, so you might have to zoom in.
Last week Nicole, Darren and I attended our first Stitch N Bitch at The Windsor Workers’ Action Centre. Coincidentally, Nicole and I yarnbombed a parking meter right in front of the building a week before, not knowing what went on inside. Upon introducing ourselves, the women who worked there realized it was us who yarnbombed them and seemed to be really happy about it. One woman, whose name I believe is Brandi (thank you Facebook), took a break from crocheting her massive blanket and quickly (!) crocheted a tag for a nearby tree. I took some pictures of the tagging.
there's a garbage strike in Windsor right now. I walked by this tree yesterday, and the pile is twice as large now. It's sad because there is a huge spot next to this tree that the garbage could have been dumped on. but instead, someone decided to surround the tree with it. disgusting.
This tree clearly was in need of some love.
The tag outside of the WWAC. Nicole got business cards made using my photograph of it.
The Windsor Workers’ Action Centre is located on 328 Peliissier, right off of University. Stop in for the next Stitch N Bitch on Thursday June 25th! And if you don’t know how to knit, come to Phog THIS THURSDAY with basic knitting supplies to learn FOR FREE!
