This year, we're coming to you!
Shop specials, live ZOOM sessions, prizes and more!
All the excitement of a yarn crawl from the comfort of your own home.
Covid-19 has affected events far and wide, including the James River Yarn Crawl originally scheduled for May 2020.
All six yarn shop owners agree that the show must go on – in-store and virtually!
Fiber enthusiasts, you are invited to grab your devices and join us for a condensed version of the original yarn crawl via your laptop, tablet and/or phone. All six yarn shops will host Zoom sessions for all three days to help you shop virtually for those of you who do not want to venture into shops.
Meanwhile, check each yarn shop for IN-STORE shopping and COVID-19 requirements. Shopping at each store will require a mask and social distancing. Each shop has its own unique Covid-19 requirements based on immunosuppression and size. PLEASE CHECK EACH STORE’S COVID-19 SHOPPING POLICIES.
Each shop will have 1 prize to give away from the weekend, so you have six chances of winning something! Passports will not be required for the James River Yarn Scroll. Also, the winner of the Craft-A-Long will be announced after this weekend’s events.
All shops will be open Saturday and Monday, Sept. 12 and 14, from 10 am to 5 pm and again from 1 to 4 pm Sunday, Sept. 13. See the Live Events tab for the schedule of Zoom events.
