Fourth Annual Long Island Yarn Crawl

Do friends and family refer to you as a fiber freak? Knit wit? Yarniac? More important, do you beam with pride every time they do? Then sharpen your needles, polish your hooks, and join your fibrous friends in a traipse across Long Island during the fourth annual Long Island Yarn Crawl. 

Nine shops are participating so there will be plenty of opportunities to satisfy your twitch for all things stitch. See what’s new in the fiber sphere. Meet others who share your secret (or-not-so-secret) obsession. Learn different techniques and see new applications of your craft.

The Yarn Crawl starts Thursday, April 19 and lasts throughout the weekend, so you’ll have plenty of time to hop from shop to shop. Store hours are generally 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and there’s free admission to all stores and store-related events. Intrepid crafters who hit up all 9 stores and collect passport stamps along the way will be entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize!
