Frequently Asked Questions

1) What is a yarn crawl? For all you newbies, a “yarn crawl” is a multi-day event for yarn and fiber lovers connecting them to local yarn shops within a specific area or city. Yarn crawl participants follow a self-guided itinerary for a weekend of exploration and fun. The crawl is sponsored by local retailers who participate in a Grand Prize raffle for participants that are able to visit all shops in the 3 day period.  In addition to the raffle, each shop offers different promotions and other events of their choice.

The Grand Prize Raffle- $50 gift card from each participating shop!
