For the Love of Yarn, A New York City Yarn Crawl: Come Visit Us at Purl!

If you're a knitter or crocheter and can make it to New York City this upcoming Columbus Day weekend you'll be pleased to learn about the big NYC Yarn Crawl organized by Knitting and Howe

The official dates of the Crawl are Friday, October 9th - Monday October 12th, 2009, Purl is one of 14 yarn shops in the city that are participating! 

 

The Crawl is a self-guided tour for knitters, crocheters and other fiber artists of 14 of the city's yarn shops, and it's the perfect opportunity to explore all (of the yarn!) the city has to offer.  There will be lots of great prizes and special deals at each of the participating shops. To register and to find all participating stores and event information, please visit the New York Yarn Crawl site at: www.nycyarncrawl.com

Below are just some of the exciting promotions you'll find being offered in our city's individual shops.  But you'll have to visit each store to find out where each promotion is being offered!

  • Yarn discounts
  • Door prizes
  • Store give-aways
  • Demonstrations
  • Free books
  • Special readings
  • Scavenger hunt

In addition to the great deals and surprises being offered at each individual shop, Knitting and Howe has organized 6 big baskets full of yarn and related goodies that will be raffled off during the course of the event and your chances to win will be multiplied every time you visit another shop. Visit all 14 stores and get 14 chances to win one of the amazing baskets.  Baskets will include products from participating sponsers such as: Jade Sapphire, Blue Sky Alpacas, Fibre Company, Tilli Thomas, Louet, Cascade and lots of other companies.  Visit www.nycyarncrawl.com for specifics on the raffle as well as pictures of the raffle prizes.

We're so excited for this event, we've decided to open an hour early during all four days of the Crawl.  Both Purl and Purl Patchwork store hours during the crawl will be:

  • Friday October 9th  11am-7pm
  • Saturday October 10th  11am-6pm
  • Sunday October 11th  11am-6pm

We look forward to meeting you all during the crawl!

Such an inviting storefront! You <i>know</i> I'd do the crawl if I was there! When I visited (way back when..before Purl existed) I loved that area of 'town.'

Just discovered your website blog - I now realise you are in America and I am here in GB so can`t visit your shop, but the next best thing is to log onto your blog which is the thing I intend to do now I`ve found you.

Best wishes from a friend from England
