More Yarn Crawl News! Prizes and Bus Schedule!

Okay, the Yarn Crawl is coming RIGHT UP! I know, I know, I told you this already. Now I'm here to give more details including the bus schedule. You don't have to ride the bus to participate in the crawl-- you can drive yourself around. But going on a bus filled with your fellow yarn fanatics bumps the experience up a notch. Plus, you don't have to keep your eyes on the road-- you can look at all your lovely purchases. Here are some basics (for all the details check out the official website):

  • The crawl is four days: October 8 - 11 inclusive.
  • To participate, pop by the store and buy a passport ($20)-- you'll get a commemorative bag, too.
  • Eleven Hill Country shops are participating. You'll get a free gift at every shop you visit.
  • Get a passport stamp at each stop-- those with at least 8 stamps can win big prizes.
  • Even if you don't hit 8, you're still entered at every shop you visit for a $25 gift certificate.
  • Grand Prize? $400 worth of fiber fabulousness!

About the bus: $50 gets you a seat and a stop at several shops. You also get lunch. There are several buses departing from different locations on different days. Buses leave at 9 am and return at 6 pm. Below is the schedule and, below the schedule check out pictures of some of the great prizes we're giving away. The buses will fill up so don't wait to sign up.
