When the fall weather starts creeping in, then you know it’s almost time for the event of the fall season – the New York City Yarn Crawl! This month, a dozen yarn shops across Manhattan and Brooklyn are participating, and we’re on the list. The NYC Yarn Crawl will be held September 28th – 30th, and it’s completely free. Check out their map page to find all the local yarn stores involved. Join in the fun to celebrate friends, community, and all things fiber!
Fun on the Yarn Crawl
Plus, as you hop from shop to shop, you’ll be able to take advantage of raffles and discounts at each location. And as you travel, be sure you’re on the lookout… there will be a scavenger hunt taking place all weekend long, with three grand prizes. In addition to the scavenger hunt fun, our Manhattan Studio will be offering 20% off purchases, excluding knitting machines and Master Classes. You’re welcome to use your 20% off toward classes, when you purchase during your visit to the store. We’ll be open Friday, 28th and Sunday, 30th, so please plan your crawl accordingly.
Be Sure to Share!
The Yarn Crawl is also hosting a daily giveaway, for those who want to participate on social media. For a chance to win, be sure to share a photo. Whether you take a selfie with your yarn haul, pose with a friend, or snap a pic of the shop, be sure to share on your Instagram or Facebook. When you do, you’ll want to tag the Yarn Crawl @nycyarncrawl and use their hashtag #nycyarncrawl. You can see what other crawlers are up to by following their Instagram, or checking out the hashtag to see who else is posting. Each post will enter you for a chance to win a daily prize from the NYC Yarn Crawl.
Crawl With Us!
We hope you’ll put the crawl in your calendar, and be sure to stop by that weekend. It’s a fun opportunity to visit new yarn shops you haven’t see before, and take a day (or three!) to get crafty with friends. It’s a great time to stash up for upcoming holiday projects, and maybe even win big.
