It’s time to start getting excited for the annual Greater Boston Yarn Crawl at JP Knit & Stitch AND – new this year – our BRAND NEW (we moved!) downtown Boston farm yarn Stall New England Farm to Fiber at the Boston Public Market!
If you’ve got in on the fun before, you know this means we host some very special raffle prizes and giveaways that you definitely don’t want to miss out on. If this is your first year, you’re in for a treat!
Please see HERE for participating shops in the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl 2017. We will have GBYC Passports available for sale in our JP shop starting on Tuesday, 9/12. This year, all proceeds from the sale of the passports ($5 each) will go to a non profit of the participating shop’s choice. Our nonprofit this year is Hyde Square Task Force, which offers area youths after school programming, mentoring, and leadership opportunities. *Remember, only GBYC Passport holders can participate in the Grand Prize Raffle (worth $200).
