Chicago Yarn Crawl & Yarn Bomb Kick-Off Party

Posted on: July 30th, 2014 by nina chicago


The 2014 Yarn Crawl begins this weekend, so get ready to grab your passport at Nina and get crawling August 2-10!

All 28 Chicagoland yarn shops are excited to welcome you, enter you in prize drawings, offer free patterns, and provide special discounts.


Here’s a glimpse of our exclusive shop pattern – the Tonal Triangle.  It will be free during the Crawl and then available for purchase afterward.


At Nina we always like to kick things off in a big way, so…

Here’s what the outside of our shop looks like now.  We’d love for you to help us yarn bomb it.


Join us this Friday evening, August 1st from 5-8pm for a Yarn Bombing Party and shopping event.

We’ll have plenty of yarn on hand to knit, crochet, wrap, and otherwise adorn the outside.  Chips and MARGARITAS will be provided for your bombing pleasure!

Crawlers who join us for this kick-off event will receive their passports early and get the 10% Yarn Crawl discount.  You’ll be entered in a special prize drawing for Yarn Bombers only, and you’ll receive a little gift bag.


Can’t make it to our party on Friday?  No worries… any crawler who starts the Crawl at our shop on Saturday and receives the first passport stamp here will also receive a free gift and be entered in a special First Day prize drawing.

Plus, anytime during the Crawl, you can enter our drawing for the shop prize basket worth $100.


Whether we see you Friday evening, or during the rest of the Yarn Crawl August 2-10, we look forward to everyone crawling in!
