Mark Your Calendars for the 2010 New York City Yarn Crawl!

We are thrilled to announce that we will be participating in the second annual NYC Yarn Crawl this Columbus Day weekend, October 9th- 11th! The Yarn Crawl is a self guided tour of New York City's best yarn shops that includes great giveaways, discounts, raffles and lots of fiber camaraderie! Each store has its own special promotions, giveaways, raffles and discounts and there is also a fun Scavenger Hunt with prizes supplied by Blue Sky Alpacas! Additionally the NYC Yarn Crawl is also running a raffle for a wonderful gift basket, filled with prizes from lots of great sponsors at every participating store. To enter just visit a store and drop your name in the hat! The Yarn Crawl is such a fun way to see the city and meet like minded knitters, crocheters, and fiber lovers and it's a perfect start to the Autumn knitting season!

We are really excited for our own promotions and prizes! We are extra exited about knitting this year because of Joelle's new book, More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, and while we don't want to give away too much about our specific promotions just yet, you can be sure the new book will be involved somehow!

We really enjoyed last year's Yarn Crawl and we're confident that this year will be even better because of our big, beautiful, new location.  We're fired up to be hosting another big shindig after the success of our Customer Appreciation Party earlier this year. It's just so gratifying to meet so many enthusiastic knitters, crocheters, crafters and artists!

During the Yarn Crawl, we'll be opening an hour earlier so you will have enough time to get to all of the great stores participating this year.  Our hours during the Yarn Crawl will be:

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

So be sure to mark your calendars! We really hope to see you there! For more information on The NYC Yarn Crawl please visit their site here.

This sounds amazing! I may just have to make the trip up to New York just to do this! By the way I love your store and website they are really inspirational.

So excited!!

My daughter and I missed the yarn crawl last year, but we will definitely make this year's crawl. This is a great way to familiarize a child with using maps in the city!

We're eager to see all the interesting fibers from each store and excited about all the new people we'll meet.

I'm seriously contemplating a trip from Australia to come and take part! You guys are the first reason I will visit NYC when I finally get there.

How much I wished I lived in New York. I was there earlier this year and I will be back next year for Christmas.

So, by the looks of some of these comments there are a few of us who live in Australia who are desperate to visit New York (again)!!!

I wish so much I could attend this yarn crawl, had I known about it sooner I would've planned it in to my calendar! I live in Toronto-we have amazing shops, but I am always curious to see what's going on in other parts. Hope everyone has a blast!
