Six shops - Center of the Yarniverse (Ashland), Dances With Wool (Midlothian), Flying Needles (Williamsburg), Yarn Matters (Williamsburg), Baa Baa Sheep (Norfolk), Yarn Club (VA Beach) coming together for 9 days of specials, events, etc to celebrate local yarn shops!
Friday, September 17 - Saturday, September 25
All shops open the entire crawl (including Sunday & Monday) from 10 AM - 5 PM each day
Some shops may have extended hours, so visit their websites for additional information.
At your first store you will receive a paper “passport” - a purchase at each of the six shops (no minimum) will earn you a stamp in your passport. Collect stamps from all six shops and turn in at your last stop to be entered into a grand prize drawing for a basket filled with fiber tools & yarn (worth $1000)! In addition, each shop will also give away a prize basket worth $150 - $200! If you shop exclusively online, just take a screenshot or picture of each of your receipts and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on September 25 and enter VIRTUAL PASSPORT SUBMISSION in the subject line. Your name will then be entered into the drawing!
All six shops do have websites, some have more robust online shops. If you are interested in purchasing but cannot shop in person, check out the shop’s website or give them a call! Some items/specials will be in-store only.
If you shop exclusively online, just take a screenshot or picture of each of your receipts and email them to email@example.com by midnight on September 25 and enter VIRTUAL PASSPORT SUBMISSION in the subject line. Your name will then be entered into the grand prize drawing!
We want everyone to have a great shopping experience, and we also want to do everything we can to help keep our staff & customers safe! Masks will be REQUIRED at all six shops for customers and staff, regardless of vaccination status. All shops may have a maximum limit on the number of shoppers that can be accommodated at any given time. When you arrive you may find a short wait before you can enter the shop. Also, be aware that we will NOT be able to wind yarn, offer assistance or print Ravelry patterns during the Crawl.
If you’ve made (or are still working on) one of the patterns for this year’s KAL/CAL, you must post your finished shawl picture to Instagram/Facebook with #jryccrawlshawl2021 and tag the shop where you purchased your yarn to be entered into the prize drawing! Each shop is giving away a $25 gift card. You have until midnight on September 25!
YES! As long as you show us proof you have made purchases at all 6 shops, you can qualify for the grand prize. Either staple your online receipts to your passport and take them to one of the 6 shops, or send an email with a picture of all of your receipts - those in person and virtually - by midnight September 25th.
