1) What is a yarn crawl?
A “yarn crawl” is a multi-day event for yarn and fiber lovers connecting them to local yarn shops within a specific area or city. Yarn crawl participants are encouraged by their local yarn shops to develop a self-guided itinerary for a weekend of exploration and fun.
Over the multi-day period, local yarn shops participating in the yarn crawl offer up promotions such as store discounts, exclusive patterns and merchandise, pop-up classes, trunk shows, and raffles.
2) How do I participate?
Attendance is absolutely FREE, and there is no need to register. Plan your route by going to the Participating Shops page. When you visit your first shop, pick up a Yarn Crawl Passport. You will bring this Passport with you to each shop you visit to be eligible for raffles and other prizes.
3) When exactly does the Yarn Crawl begin?
The 2019 Spring Triangle Yarn Crawl will be held from Thursday April 4th through Sunday, April 7th. Please consult the Shops page for specific crawl hours when planning a route.
4) Did someone say raffle? How do I participate?
Each shop will have their own raffle. Just show your Passport to enter, and fill out a raffle ticket! Raffle tickets are FREE (limit one ticket per participant per store per crawl). There will be a grand-prize raffle for those ambitious crawlers who visit all yarn shops during the crawl. Participants must be present at each shop to get their Passport stamped. Passports will only be stamped during yarn crawl days and hours as stated on the Passport. Passports are non-transferable.
5) How will raffle prize winners be notified?
Each shop will draw a raffle prize winner at the close of the yarn crawl and will contact the winners.
6) If I win, how do I get my raffle prize?
Each lucky winner will be responsible for picking up his/her raffle prize at the shop. Raffle prizes must be picked up within 14 days of contest or prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be notified.
7) How do I participate in the Grand Prize drawing?
Have your Passport stamped/initialed at all participating local yarn shops during yarn crawl days and hours as stated on the Passport. Leave your Passport at the last shop you visit to be eligible to win the Grand Prize. Don’t forget to write your name on your Passport!
8) If I win the Grand Prize, how do I get my prize?
One lucky winner will be drawn from the qualifying Passports and notified by a Triangle Yarn Crawl organizer. The winner and organizer will determine the best way to deliver the prize. The Grand Prize winner must respond within 72 hours of being notified or the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be notified.
