Passport & Prizes:
Each participant in the Tropical Yarn Crawl gets a Passport at their first stop (or you can download it and print it at home!) Each time you visit a shop, make sure your passport is stamped, so you get credit for that stop.
A special Grand Prize will be available for those dedicated enough to complete the entire Crawl (it’s okay now to scream out “Road Trip!”). Each person who has their Passport stamped by all participating shops (spelling out the word “F-I-N-I-S-H-E-D” in the 2017 Crawl) were entered in a raffle for the Grand Prize.
- Will there be special hours for the next Yarn Crawl?
The participating shops in the Tropical Yarn Crawl typically decide to be open during a set minimum hours. Some shops might be open earlier or later, but the Crawl is guaranteed (barring emergencies) to be open during set hours. We’ll announce them here.
- What is a Yarn Trunk Show?
During a yarn trunk show, a yarn manufacturer (or an individual dyer) will send the yarn shop a huge box (aka a “trunk” ) full of completed projects (‘Finished Objects) made with different colorways of the trunk show yarns! You will be able to see – and feel – how the highlighted yarn colorways were knitted, crocheted, woven or spun into it’s final forms. Often, the samples in the trunk show will inspire you to create similar projects using the same yarns!
- What is a Yarn Tasting?
We bring different yarns that a yarn manufacturer (or individual dyer) makes into the shop and give you an opportunity to get a “taste” of the different yarns by using small samples of them with knitting needles, crochet hooks, a rigid-heddle loom, or a spindle. This gives you a great “hands-on” opportunity to touch and use the very yarn fibers and colorways of the yarns being highlighted.
