Magda Sayeg: How yarn bombing grew into a worldwide movement – [TED Talks]

These warm, fuzzy “yarn bombs” started small, with stop sign poles and fire hydrants in Sayeg’s hometown, but soon people found a connection to the craft and spread it across the world. “We all live in this fast-paced, digital world, but we still crave and desire something that’s relatable,” Sayeg says. “Hidden power can be found in the most unassuming places, and we all possess skills that are just waiting to be discovered.”
