Sayeg's well-known Spyrographs will be available at TenOverSix through January.

Meet Magda Sayeg, Mother of Yarn Bomb, at TenOverSix

The queen of knit graffiti heads to Dallas.

Remember that great 7Up commercial from last year? The one where a dull, gloomy New York park gets turned into a wonderland of brightly colored knits. If not, give the 30-second ad a watch here, and then immediately find yourself wondering more about the “Urban-Knitter” who totally steals the spotlight from the clear, citrus-flavored Uncola.

Magda Sayeg is an Austin-based textile artist, whose habit of taking her vibrant knitting to the streets, graffiti style, has earned her credit for kick-starting the yarn-bombing movement. From a knitting/crochet-covered bus in Mexico City to an 80-foot column in New York City’s Dover Street Market, her imaginative works can be seen around the world, and starting next week, they’ll also be in Dallas.

From November 11-January 11, Sayeg will debut an exclusive line of hand-woven pieces for an in-store, holiday show at TenOverSix, though yarn-bomb enthusiasts can meet the mother of knit graffiti when she visits the downtown Dallas store this Friday from 10am-5pm. “Magda was one of the first artists I met upon moving to Austin from Los Angeles. It was really fun to meet an artist there whose work I had already seen around in New York and loved,” says Kristen Lee Cole, creative director of TenOverSix. “We’re very excited to introduce her work to our customers in Dallas.”

With a medium as warm and cozy as Sayeg’s, her celebrated Spyrographs and Knitted Balls will make for perfect gifts this holiday season.
