The 5th Annual Long Island Yarn Crawl

The 5th Annual Long Island Yarn Crawl


After four successful years, 10 yarn shops from Port Washington to East Hampton will be
participating in the fifth annual Long Island Yarn Crawl on April 4th – 7 th, 2019. Over the course of four days,
yarn crafters – knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners – are invited to participate in this self-guided tour
of our Long Island yarn shops, which will have extended hours and specials throughout the weekend. It is a
wonderful opportunity for crafters to explore what our local fiber community has to offer and meet up with
other local yarn enthusiasts.


Participants are invited to either pick up their Long Island Yarn Crawl Passport from a participating shop or
download and print a copy from the Yarn Crawl’s website, Present the
passport at each location to receive a stamp as they “crawl” from shop to shop. Crawlers who collect
stamps from all 10 stores will be entered to win one of our amazing prizes: the grand prize of a $100 gift
card to each of the participating stores; the second prize, over $400 of yarn donated by Gold Sponsor and
local yarn distributor, Knitting Fever Inc. Participants who submit a passport with fewer than 10 stamps will
still be entered in a separate drawing, so that anyone who joins even part of the crawl can still win a prize.
Further prizes will be announced as the Yarn Crawl approaches!


Special edition Long Island Yarn Crawl bags can be purchased at participating shops, or are available as a
free gift with a $40 minimum purchase (while supplies last). Visitors to each store can enter a door prize
drawing, with no minimum purchase. Each store has specials planned for the Crawl weekend. Details
will be made available closer to the Yarn Crawl weekend here on our website
(, Facebook, and Instagram.

This year we are continuing our tradition of encouraging participants to give back to our local
community during the Yarn Crawl, by partnering with


 a few local organizations looking for handcrafted
items. We are collecting items on behalf of the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. They’ve asked
for knitted or crocheted hats and blankets of any size, from infant to adult. More details can be found on
our site:

We hope that yarn crafters of all backgrounds will explore Long Island’s rich fiber community during the
yarn crawl weekend and make connections with fellow crafters. The different offerings and events at
each shop are sure to provide crafting inspiration and ideas to all. It will be a wonderful Long Island
celebration for yarn enthusiasts and is sure to be an event to remember.
