Yarn crawls are a fun way to introduce you to all the wonderful shops within a certain radius, to experience the unique ambience each one has to offer, while discovering new products, connecting with other fibre enthusiasts, all the while exploring the area with yarny friends and family who decide to join you on the journey.
The Cottage Country Yarn Crawl is a group of local yarn shop owners who happen to live and work in some of the most scenic areas of Ontario’s cottage country! So, it only made sense to connect the dots (or stitches) for yarn seekers and create a fun road trip!
the Cottage Country Yarn Crawl is a self-guided tour, which will allow you to take your time and really plan out the route to suit your schedule. We don’t expect you to do the crawl all in ONE day! That’s why it has been set up over the summer months, so you can enjoy the laid back easy breezy lifestyle that is part of the charm in cottage country. No rushing from store to store, just fit one or two into a day trip and then come back for more. After all, how MUCH yarn can you really fit into your trunk?
Bring along your passport and have it stamped at each of the shops listed between June 8th - September 4th 2019. Drop off your passport at the last shop on your crawl to be entered in our GRAND PRIZE DRAW! If you can’t make it to every shop before Sept 4th, you may still drop off your partially-stamped passport at the last stop on your crawl for a chance to win the runner up prize. Enter to win in-store draws at each shop (with yarn purchase).
At Needles in the Hay, crawlers will be entered to win a kit for one of Deanna's personal favourites: this beautiful Tamdou Shawl by Melanie Berg in The Fibre Co.'s Cumbria Fingering. All you need to do is visit us, make any purchase and get your passport stamped for a ballot in the draw.
Pick up your FREE pattern (with yarn purchase) and collect our exclusive ‘group of eight’ WILDFLOWER minis to knit your very own keepsake shawl!
We've teamed up with Marit Munson at Gobsmacked to bring you this limited edition Wild Columbine inspired mini skein gradient kit. Each kit is beautifully unique, and designed to knit up in a dappled, subtle gradient. Use as part of the CCYC wildflower shawl, or any project your heart desires. We'll have them available at the shop for the duration of the crawl while supplies last. Crawls will also have the opportunity to purchase an individual mini skein if they prefer.
