Reminder: The 2011 New York City Yarn Crawl is this Friday – Sunday!
Please join us this weekend, Friday September 30th through Sunday October 2nd, as we celebrate the 3rd annual New York City Yarn Crawl! The Yarn Crawl is a high-spirited, self-guided tour through fourteen of the city's best yarn shops with discounts, giveaways and demonstrations galore! Each participating store hosts a free raffle for a fabulous Yarn Crawl Gift Basket filled with amazing prizes from sponsors like Cascade and Lantern Moon.
This year we're extra excited about our own events and promotions. We'll be hosting raffles which are free to enter with any purchase! We're giving away over 30 great yarn related prizes, many of them related to Purl Bee posts, including the yarn and pattern to make the Big Herringbone Cowl (pictured above), The Chevron Blanket (pictured below), the Pom Pom Peds and many, many more.
Additionally we will be offering 15% off of gorgeous multi colored Koigu Painters Palette Premium Merino and amazing Cascade Magnum both in the store and at purlsoho.com Friday September 30th through Sunday October 2nd. During those days you'll also receive a free Purlsoho muslin project bag, pictured above, with any purchase online or in the store!
This event is always a perfect kickoff to the fall and winter knitting season and a fun excuse to mingle with like-minded yarn lovers. This year it even looks like the weather will participate, with a sunny and pleasant forecast for the whole weekend! It's hard to imagine a better way to spend an autumn day in New York!
For a more in-depth explanation of all the festivities please check out our previous Yarn Crawl post here or the official NYC Yarn Crawl website here where you can find a Crawl map, info about the Official Yarn Crawl raffles and scavenger hunt and even suggestions for places to eat.
The celebration starts on Friday, September 30th and runs through Sunday October 2nd. We'll be open an hour early on each day of The Crawl, from 11-7 on Friday and from 11-6 on Saturday and Sunday. We hope to see you there!
