Crawl of Fame! Get Your Passports Ready!

It's almost time to crawl, y'all. Yep, the Hill Country Yarn Crawl is just a month away. Passports go on sale September 19th and you can pick yours up at Hill Country Weavers. A mere fifteen bucks gets you both your passport and a lovely tote bag. Then, get ready to crawl.

How does it work? Well, you're invited to visit a dozen knit shops in the Hill Country, including, of course, the yarn shop named for the Hill Country. The crawl lasts for four days over Columbus Day Weekend. Other participants include:

Bluebonnet Yarn Shoppe (Cedar Park)
Ewe and Eye (Boerne)
Gauge (Austin)
Old Oaks Ranch Fiber Arts Center (Wimberley)
Rosewood Yarns (Boerne)
Stonehill Spinning (Fredericksburg)
The Knitting Nest (Austin)
The Tinsmith’s Wife (Comfort)
The Yarn Barn (San Antonio)
Yarnivore (San Antonio)
Yarnorama (Paige)

And the Yarn Crawl more than a shopping spree. It's a chance to bond with your fellow fiber fanatics, an opportunity to win lots of prizes, and a time to meet up with some fantastic local fiber artists who will be showing off their skills and wares. You'll also get a free gift (value approx $8), and at each store you visit and make a purchase at, you'll be registered to win a $25 gift certificate.


If you visit at least 9 shops over the course of the four day crawl you'll be automatically entered into a bigger contest with a Grand Prize valued at $400!

For all the details check out the link above. And do swing by the store to get your passport as soon as you can-- we've only got a limited number.
