Please join us for the annual Greater Boston Yarn Crawl on the last weekend in September. This is a wonderful way to usher in the fall knitting season. Take a road trip throughout the greater Boston area and see all that your LYS’s have to offer.  We are planning lots of fun and exciting events for the weekend:

–free mitten and scarf pattern with every purchase

–with every purchase of $50 or more, you will receive a 15% off coupon towards your next purchase

–lots of great raffles (blanket pattern + yarn; mitten and scarf kit; and more)

–FRIDAY, 3-6PM: performance by the fiber artist Virginia Fitzgerald : Come see fiber artist Virginia Fitzgerald perform her piece, Insatiable. This piece is an ever growing, organically crocheted fiber piece in which she crochets a myriad of different materials, some traditional fibers and yarns and some untraditional — old plastic bags, electric cords, balloons, etc. Beside using the different materials that she has collected, Virginia encourages others to bring in materials to add to the piece.  So look around your house and bring in any greenish/brownish fiber like materials – such as, scraps of yarn, strips of fabrics, old nylons, gift wrapping ribbons, old ribbons, old packing materials, old plastic bags….the sky’s the limit, let your imagination run wild!

–SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: Photo Booth Session: Crafter’s Edition with photographer Jennifer Waddell. We are so excited to host Jen Waddell for one of her famous photo booth sessions. For more information about how to sign up for a session, click here.

–SUNDAY Trunk show with Knit Collage, a nationally distributed indie yarn company based in Boston.  We are in love with their unique, globally inspired yarns and ethically conscious business practices. Come and be inspired by their handspun yarn influenced by nature, travel, and fashion.
