Triangle Yarn Crawl
The Spring 2014 Triangle Yarn Crawl is a fun self-guided tour that connects fiber lovers who enjoy the adventure of discovering new local yarn shops in the Triangle. The crawl takes place during normal business hours on March 22-23, 2014 and includes nine local shops throughout the Triangle. Yarn crawl participants are provided with the means to develop their own self-guided itinerary for a weekend of exploration and fun and will receive a “Crawl Passport” to have stamped at each shop for promotions.
The crawl is sponsored by local retailers who are provided with a raffle prize that they fill with products. In addition to the raffle, each shop offers a different promotion and demonstration of their choice. Attendance is absolutely FREE. Yarn and other items in the participating shops are available for purchase, but purchasing items is not mandatory.
Registration opens February 24, 2014. Register here to receive your Crawl Passport! Be sure to present your Crawl Passport at each shop and have it stamped for promotions available to crawlers and to qualify for the Grand Prize drawing.
Plan Your Route
Check out the Yarn Crawl Map to plan your route. Don’t forget about lunch. Oh, and carpooling is highly encouraged and tons more fun.
Each participating local yarn shop will have a raffle prize full of goodies. Just ask for your raffle ticket when you arrive at each shop. If you visit all nine participating shops and turn in your Crawl Passport at the last shop you visit, you’re automatically entered into the Grand Prize drawing.
