Multicultural Tauranga had decided to execute a colourful collage in wool to depict the title “We are the world”. It seemed the obvious choice for an organisation whose beneficiaries are people from all over the world and whose logo is a globe or, in other words, the world.
Many of the knitted and crocheted pieces were reused from last year's yarn bombing, as was the huge globe with crochet stripes in Multicultural Tauranga’s logo colours. However, many new items had been especially produced for this theme, such as the musical notes with striking crochet ruffles.
While the team consisting of Alessandra and Clive Tilby, Raffaella Cruickshank-Veneziano and Alexander Finn were up on the ladders and in the tree, a number of encouraging hoots and shouts, such as “Cool!”, from passing cars cheered them on. The team managed to get the decoration up with only a short, light drizzle of rain towards the very end.
