Follow the yarn...  September 28-30, 2018

​​Each NYC LYS has its own personality. The stores range from tiny jewels to stunning needlecraft meccas to out-of-the-way hidden treasures.  Many have exclusive yarns and accessories, and you'll discover something new at each one.

There is no charge to crawl, and there is no pre-registration necessary.  Just show up, visit the shops - plan your own route and make your own adventure.

How does it work?

Get a map - use our Google map or download the .pdf from the maps page.  Visit the participating local yarn shops. During the crawl, all of our stores have special promotions and discounts on yarn and other goodies. It's a great time to get inspired, start a new project, find luscious new yarns, uncover new patterns and stock up on supplies.

Visit as many stores as you can - sign up at each store to win one of their raffle prizes.  Visit multiple stores to participate in the scavenger hunt, then email us to enter the drawing to win one of three grand prizes.  Simple!

What is the NYC Yarn Crawl?

We're a three-day event where knitters, crocheters, spinners, dyers, felters and fiber lovers of all kinds visit New York City's finest local yarn shops to celebrate our love of the fiber arts. Drool over the latest hand-dyed yarns; discover new patterns, tools and accessories; meet fellow yarnistas; and of course win amazing prizes from our wonderful sponsors.  At the same time you get to explore the city's fun and diverse neighborhoods from the Upper East Side to Red Hook; from Soho to Midtown; from the Upper West Side to the East Village to Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.  Along the way there are great places for sips and eats, and showing off what you scored!
