7th annual self-paced, self-guided tour of 7 yarn shops will take crawlers from the picturesque Connecticut coastline to the Northern Valleys. Enjoy the fall New England foliage, shop the latest yarns and bond over your love of it all. The shops represent every corner of Western Connecticut and cater to every knitter’s palate: In Sheep’s Clothing (Torrington), Knits & Pearls (Avon), New England Yarn and Spindle (Southington), Stars Hollow Yarns (New Preston), A Stitch in Time (Bethel), nancy O (Ridgefield) and Westport Yarns (Westport).
The shops will entertain “crawlers” with a wide selection of special events, including trunk shows from local and regional artisans, “indie” dyers and designers, yarn tastings, and giveaways. To get more details on what each shop is offering, find our group on Ravelry or Facebook.
This year, the Western Connecticut Yarn Crawl has added something fun for all participants. Everyone who joins the crawl is eligible to receive a cotton commemorative tote, free with the purchase of $25 or more where they pick up their passport. Totes are available without purchase for $5 and are decorated with a fun sheep with 7 spots to place buttons from each shop. Upon your visit to each shop, you’ll get a free button to adorn your tote. Visit all 7 shops and you’ll have a fully decorated sheep tote to hold your purchases and future projects! One tote per customer, please, as supplies are limited.
Upon visiting each store, you will be eligible to enter a Nightly Drawing for fabulous products. With each of the seven stores holding a drawing all three nights of the crawl, there are many opportunities to walk away with something beautiful! If you visit all seven yarn shops, your name will be added to a Grand Prize Drawing. This year’s Grand Prize will be $25 Gift Cards to all seven stores!!
