 7th annual self-paced, self-guided tour of 7 yarn shops will take crawlers from the picturesque   Connecticut coastline to the Northern Valleys. Enjoy the fall New England foliage, shop the latest   yarns, and bond over your love of it all. The shops represent every corner of Western Connecticut and   cater to every knitter’s palate: In Sheep’s Clothing (Torrington), Knits & Pearls (Avon), New England   Yarn and Spindle (Southington), Stars Hollow Yarns (New Preston), A Stitch in Time (Bethel), nancy   O (Ridgefield) and Westport Yarns (Westport).

 The shops will entertain “crawlers” with a wide selection of special events, 
 including trunk shows from local and regional artisans, “indie” dyers and designers, yarn tastings, and   giveaways. To get more details on what each shop is offering, find our group on Ravelry.

New this year, we have added something fun for all participants.  Everyone who joins the crawl is eligible to receive a cotton commemorative tote, free with purchase of $25 or more where they pick up their passport.  Totes are available without purchase for $5 and are decorated with a fun sheep with 7 spots to place buttons from each shop.  Upon your visit to each shop, you’ll get a free button to adorn your tote.  Visit all 7 shops and you’ll have a fully decorated sheep tote to hold your purchases and future projects!  One tote per customer, please, as supplies are limited.  

 Upon visiting each store, you will be eligible to enter a Nightly Drawing for fabulous products. With each of the seven stores holding a drawing all three nights of the crawl, there are many opportunities to walk away with something beautiful! If you visit all seven yarn shops, your name will be added to a Grand Prize Drawing. This year's Grand Prize will be $30 Gift Cards to all seven stores - that's over $200 in Gift Cards!! 

Come visit us at Knit & Pearls and fall in love with our Baah Trunk Show. Baah Yarn offers vibrant hand painted yarn using quality bases. So rich and unique, you can feel the color! We will have individual skeins of Sequoia and La Jolla along with mini skein kits available.

In addition to all the daily prizes,
 Knit & Pearls will be giving away a special gift for any purchase of $25 or more PLUS a Knit & Pearls Grand Prize! It’s all the Cascade 128 Superwash that you need to knit or crochet a beautiful blanket!!

Pick up a free passport at any participating store to get all the info you need. Passports will be available starting 9/12. If you pick up your passport at Knit & Pearls by Sunday 9/15, you will get an extra Raffle ticket to increase your chances of winning a prize!!
