There’s a new interactive mural at fibre space in Old Town

Alexandria’s knitters and crocheters can celebrate their finished work at a new interactive mural at yarn shop fibre space (1319 Prince Street) in Old Town.

The mural allows for customers to take photos with their finished objects (known as FO’s), and pretend to be holding an umbrella under a shower of knitting notions and tools.

“It’s raining all things knitting,” said fibre space owner Danielle Romanetti. ” I wanted something interactive that our customers could take pictures with so they can stand under the umbrella and hold or wear their finished piece.”

Alexandria muralist Matthew McMullen painted the piece, and it was designed by graphic artist Shelli Martinez.

McMullen also painted the fibre girl mural on the other side of the building.

Romanetti moved to the 1319 Prince Street location five years ago, and says that there is still plenty of available space on her building for more murals.

“This building was historically a very colorful place,” Romanetti said. “Before it was fibre space it was a paint store. There’s plenty of real estate on the building for more, so Matt will probably be doing another mural.”
