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 twice a year, and the time has come again: the Spring 2016 crawl is coming up soon on April 16th and 17th! This year, the TYC Kickoff will be here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop, so come by on Saturday, April 16th, between 9:00 and 10:00 am for coffee, snacks, and raffles.
Each local yarn shop has something special to offer, and we’re no exception: all of the books we currently have in stock will be 25% off during the weekend of the Triangle Yarn Crawl! Indulge in some of the latest publications, or pick up a handy resource you’ve been needing. If you’re looking for recommendations, Anne and I are more than happy to oblige–we love our books almost as much as we love our yarns.
We’ll also have a Baa Ram Ewe Trunk Show on display, featuring garments knit in Dovestone DK. We’re offering a 10% discount on Dovestone DK during the show, which will be on display here at the shop until May 8th.
There’s a bag of goodies at each of the participating shops, a raffle prize full of yarn, patterns, and more. Some of its contents are donated by TYC sponsors, and others come from our own collection here at the shop.
We’ve tucked some special things into the raffle prize this time, including a Romney Ridge Farm needle-felting kit, a Swans Island project bag, and one of our very newest locally-made products: a sweet-smelling sheep soap handmade by Lucia Apollo Shaw, our next door neighbor on Churton Street. Stop by her lovely shop, the Qi Garden, while you’re here in Hillsborough!
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!
