More than a dozen New York yarn stores are participating in the first ever NYC Yarn Crawl this weekend in an effort to “encourage exploration of the city’s yarn shops and promote the needle arts.”

The NYC Yarn Crawl is a free, self-guided tour for knitters, crocheters and other fiber artists to the city’s premier yarn shops. Featuring special demonstrations, exhibits, sales and promotions, the crawl promises to be 4 days of shopping, discovery and urban exploration for both local and out-of-town knitters.

You can read more about the participating retailers, scavenger hunt and big basket raffle prizes on the NYC Yarn Crawl Web site. Our Cozy Up To Yarn month sponsors, Lion Brand Yarn, will be participating. You can get a sneak peek at the cozy, yarn-filled Lion Brand Yarn Studio in Nat and Becky’s video tour from last month!
