Funny things happen when you go house-hunting. Sometimes you find the village you are looking to move to covered in PomPoms. Katie Davies liked the idea so much she wrote about it on her blog and she made some for us. Thank you Katie for these beautiful PomPoms.

Local Toddler Groups have got involved too. These photos are some of the fantastic mums and carers at Killearn Toddlers who made PomPoms for us on Wednesday morning. At the same time, the Balfron Bairns was meeting... making PomPoms! It is no mean feat to make a PomPom whilst balancing babies, so thank you much ladies!

The fantastic children who attend FAB Arts’ Saturday morning children’s art classes called ArtWorks made these beautiful PomPoms. They had enormous fun trying out different yarns and bag combinations, as well as naming the PomPoms afterwards.
They create amazing work all year and it was brilliant to see them enjoy PomPom making so much. Some of the older ones helped hang them too, whilst others have spent ages wandering the village looking for their PomPom!
Thank you so much!

A mega thank you to the children of Years 3-6 of St Bartholomew’s Church of England Primary School for this amazing group of PomPoms. They are fantastic and are now spread across various trees in the village. The children of Balfron Primary, who also made PomPoms for the trees are really pleased that other schools got involved too. A big thank you as well to teacher Barbara Burch who organised it.

These lovely PomPoms were made by Ruth Singer, a textile artist and tutor who lives in Leicester. We especially like these PomPoms as some of them use wool which Ruth used to knit a baby blanket which is still in use at PomPom HQ. Thank you Ruth!

These gorgeous PomPoms are part of the collection made by Kirsty Bell, an artist based in Norfolk, of the Teapot Lighthouse. There is also a lighthouse to look out for around Balfron, but unfortunately the photo of it was not good enough to use! Thank you Kirsty, these are fantastic and if we pass your lighthouse PomPom, we will take another photo for the blog.

These are just some of the fantastic collection of PomPoms made by the Tuesday Needlers during their ‘Pompomathon’, with some additions from the Muirfield Art Club. The variety is amazing! One is made from old cassette tapes (an 80s mix!), there is a bunch of grapes and several with crochet additions.
Thank you so much ladies for your amazing PomPoms!
