The project was originally funded by Arts Council England, Bournemouth Libraries and Bournemouth Arts Development. It was the idea of a local artist, Pauline Stanley, who guided the project from its inception in 2010 until 2015.

42 local knitting/craft/crochet groups, church groups, day centres, colleges, primary schools as well as students from the Arts University Bournemouth have participated in the project. It was made in 2010, first exhibited in 2011 and has been touring the UK since then. Each venue makes more work to add to it.
