In fact the township has been bombed with yarn.

Yarn-bombing is a stealth operation in Medowie and you won’t see images of this artist with her works which are installed in the public realm, but you can’t possibly miss the bright colourful and fun installations.

There are currently four installations in Medowie but locals can expect to see more.

Medowie’s resident yarn-bomber Kyla Story told News Of The Area, “The works I have installed currently are with the permission of Port Stephens Council.”

She encourages anyone who wishes to engage in public art to seek council permission.

Kyla believes that public art is an important part of our community.

Artworks help people to connect and start conversations.

Kyla has been involved in installations and public art for over 10 years, recently having moved to Medowie, Kyla’s works are new to our community but she has previously had work sponsored in Ipswich, in Queensland and has won awards for her textile art at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival and the Warwick Jazz and Jumpers Festival.

Kyla invites locals that would like to contribute to the public art process to get in touch with her via email at

Kyla’s yarn-bombing installations are a wonderful, cheerful and colourful addition to the public art in Port Stephens which features sculptures, murals, mosaics and more.
