 WHAT IS A YARN CRAWL?

A YARN CRAWL is a self-guided, eleven day showcase tour of participating yarn stores. These stores, located from Ashland to Virginia Beach, will be going all out to give you the best "SHOP LOCAL" experience ever!  Each shop will have different specials, trunk shows, visiting designers, and lots of other goodies for this exclusive event only. Visit just a couple of shops, or all of them. It's up to you!
 

HOW DO I ENTER TO WIN PRIZES?

Pick up a passport at the first store you visit.  Make a purchase, and have your passport stamped.  Be sure to have it stamped at each store you visit.  ONE PASSPORT PER CUSTOMER, AND ONE STAMP PER PURCHASE.  Complete your passport with six stamps from the participating shops, leave it at the last store you visit, and you will be entered to win prizes.  There is a James River Yarn Crawl Grand Prize for one lucky winner as well as smaller prizes exclusive to each store.
