The Triangle Yarn Crawl is a self-guided tour of local yarn shops, where yarn-lovers get together and hop from one shop to the next, shopping, entering raffles, and seeing the full breadth of available fibers. They happen just once a year, and the time has come again: the Spring 2019 crawl is coming up this week, from April 4th – 7th!
The event includes 9 yarn shops, from Mebane to Rocky Mount to Southern Pines, and everywhere in between. It’s four days long, Thursday through Sunday, giving yarn crawlers time to experience what every shop has to offer, and getting your TYC passport stamped at every shop means you’re entered to win the grand prize raffle!
We’re having our own raffle, too, and the prize features yarns and kits from Shibui, Koigu, Berroco, Kauni, and Brown Sheep, along with a bundle of pattern booklets from Noro. Additionally, we’re giving away TYC totes to the first 5 customers each day of the yarn crawl with a purchase of $25 or more!
A new feature for the 2019 TYC is a free pattern, a blanket square designed by each participating shop. Collect the patterns for all the squares as you go from shop to shop, and all together, you’ll have a baby blanket! Our block features our favorite fiber animal, a sheep, designed by Anne and knit with Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted; you’ll need just over one skein to make a 10″x10″ block, or pick up three skeins for enough to make two blocks.
Each local yarn shop has something special to offer, and we’re no exception! Visit us during the Triangle Yarn Crawl to enjoy our usual selection of natural fiber yarns along with the following special attractions from April 4-7, 2018:
- 10% off Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted
- 25% off all in-stock books and magazines
- Triangle Yarn Crawl enamel pins and stitch markers for sale
We’re lucky to live in such a fiber-friendly part of the world, with so many choices available to us, and the Triangle Yarn Crawl is a great time to see all of those choices. Come see us as you’re crawling along!
