10th Anniversary Yarn Crawl
July 27 - August 4
The Chicago Yarn Crawl is an annual celebration of Chicagoland’s Local Yarn Shops. With over 20 participating shops, this crawl is a great way to experience the vibrant fiber arts community that lives in and around Chicago. This year’s Crawl is extra special because it is our 10th Anniversary!
Yarn Crawl 2019 takes place July 27th through August 4th. Customers who have pre-ordered bags and pins may pick them up the first day of the crawl or the day before at our kick-off party. Additional bags and pins will be available for purchase during the crawl until they run out. Please see our extended hours for the Chicago Yarn Crawl here!
We will also be having several special events for the crawl:
Yarn Crawl Kick-off Party
Friday evening, July 26th, will be our kick-off party from 6-9pm. This will be our first special event in our space after our grand reopening. Drinks and food will be served and you will be able to pick up your passports, tote bags, and pins. All other Crawl perks apply, including 10% off yarn and a chance to enter our shop raffle. To top it all off, we will be having a special one-of-a-kind preview and sale of items we brought back from TNNA this year!
Paper Daisy Creations Meet ‘n Greet & Trunk Show
On Thursday evening, August 1st from 5-8pm, we are thrilled to host designer Lisa K. Ross of Paper Daisy Creations for a Meet ‘N Greet and Trunk Show! Her designs for adults and kids alike are timeless, yet bold and colorful. She might be known best for her incredibly unique and fun sock patterns. This mom of four boys from Bloomington, IN, is just a cool gal, so please take this opportunity to come out and meet here while she is in town! She will have many samples with her so don’t miss this chance to see them in person.
Coffee & Stitches with AndySunflower Café
On Saturday morning, August 3rd from 10am to noon, we welcome AndySunflower Café, a new mobile local coffee cart! Andrea recently created AndySunflower Café to connect and meet with as many coffee lovers in the Chicagoland area as possible. Any means to serve coffee and have great conversations is what matters most to her, and we can’t think of a better time or place to get everyone together than for the Chicago Yarn Crawl! Bring your project, buy yourself a cup o’ joe, and let’s start off the second weekend of the crawl just chilling with each other and some amazing coffee.
