Great Autumn Event

What a great Autumn 2012 Event we had!

Thanks to all of the yarn crawlers who made their way across the Triangle to visit our wonderful local yarn shops.

We enjoyed meeting everyone who attended the Crawl Kickoff at Warm ‘n Fuzzy bright and early Saturday morning. We had quite the spread with tasty breakfast treats donated by Blue Moon Bakery & Cafe  (the pumpkin bread was delicious!), mimosas from Lynda with Chambers Arts and more baked goods provided by crawl organizers. Attendees were greeted with a Triangle Yarn Crawl project bag and an extra raffle ticket if they were wearing pink in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Thanks to our wonderful yarn shops who put together great promotions, inspiring demonstrations, and raffle prizes full of goodies, which attracted over 65 crawl participants. Congratulations to all of our LYS Raffle Prize winners!

Congratulations to Kelly Fillbrandt who won! The prize valued at $200+ included a very stylish black and white Thirty-One bag and catalog donated by Nicole C. Inside we have handspun yarn and a knitted scarf pattern from Henceforth Yarns, a zipper case for accessories from Carolina FiberFest, Cubics ergonomic needles by Knitter’s Pride, a colorful lamb print by Ken McNeill, and a beautiful silk needle case and more needles from Lantern Moon.

A huge thanks to our Sponsors, Rebecca Hart with Warm ‘n Fuzzy for hosting the Crawl Kickoff and TYC Organizers Michelle, Jessica, Gail & Martha who made this event possible. We couldn’t have pulled it off without their support. THANK YOU!

We hope you’ll join us for the upcoming Spring 2013 Event taking place March 23-24, 2013. More details to come so please stay tuned.

Crawl Kickoff

Let’s kickoff the 3rd Triangle Yarn Crawl right by welcoming Warm ‘n Fuzzy, the newest local yarn shop in the Triangle-area, to the mix on Saturday, October 13th from 9-10am.

Mingle with fellow crawlers. Share your crawl wish list. Fuel your crawl weekend with baked goods, coffee and more. And we’ll have surprises for those who attend.

Rebecca and her staff will be available to show crawlers around the shop, answer questions and help with purchases.

Wear pink to the Crawl Kickoff to celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and receive one additional raffle ticket to enter into the LYS raffle prize drawing of your choice.

We’ll have the Special Drawing raffle prize on display so get your sneak peak in and  see if you’re up for the challenge. Just remember to have your Crawl Passport stamped at all nine participating yarn shops and turn it in at the last shop you visit to be automatically entered into the drawing.

We’d like to thank Lynda with Chambers Arts for providing mimosas AND Blue Moon Bakery & Cafe for providing yummy breakfast treats. Check them out this weekend and say thanks!

We hope to see you there!
