2018 Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl

IT’S TIME FOR THE CHARLOTTE AREA YARN CRAWL!  This is our 10th year for the Crawl and the local stores are all very excited about it!

For those new Crawlers out there, this is simple:  get your free passport off of the Yarn Crawl Website, and then visit as many of the participating stores as you can during the Crawl.  The Crawl runs from September 21st through the 29th, and all of the stores will be open the same minimum hours, so you can come in Monday through Saturday from 10 – 6 (we’ll still be open Thursday till 9) and Sunday 1 – 4.

Every Crawler who makes it to all participating stores and turns in their completed passport will be included in a GRAND PRIZE DRAWING!  Remember, you must turn in your completed passport to be eligible for the drawing, and don’t forget to fill out your contact information so we can tell you if you win!

We’ve also planned special limited-edition bags and pins to celebrate 10 years of Crawling.  As always, we’ll be having a sale, door prizes, trunk shows, and surprises!

You’re also welcome to join us here at North Cross Shopping Center at 1 pm on Sunday, September 30th when the Pink Lady fire truck arrives to pick up our knitted knockers for delivery to Carolina Breast Friends Center.

The store will close at 6 pm as usual, though attending students can still make purchases.

We’ll have a healthy dinner and a delicious dessert or two, followed by lots of knitting and stitching time and all the help and instruction you want.

It’s a class so our normal class rules apply and you’ll get credit for it. The fee is $25 and advance reservations are required by the Wednesday before.  Yarn must have been purchased from Knit One, Stitch Too.

There will be a surprise or two during the evening as well.

Future dates for this year will be announced as they are scheduled. Call the store for more information.

KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT

We’re partnering with the Carolina Breast Friends Center to make and distribute Knitted Knockers for women who need breast prosthesis after surgery. Did you guess that we will make and they will distribute? Actually they have knitting and crochet groups that will be making them along with several church groups that knit and crochet for good causes, and our knitters and crocheters. The prosthesis can be crocheted, knitted in the round, or knitted flat. We’ll be happy to do the seaming and stuffing if you bring them to us. We are also collecting the finished knockers for deliverey to the Carolina Breast Friends Center for distribution to women who need them. We have several yarns that will make wonderful knockers, and will be happy to help you with any questions or problems. You can come in any time for that whether you bought your yarn here or not.

We’ll be hosting KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT on the first Friday of every month from 3 pm to 9 pm. There’s no charge and all we’ll be doing is knitting or crocheting knockers, but – you know us – there may be a few surprises. If you don’t want to join us for the knitting, that’s fine. You can drop your knockers off any time the store is open. You can download the pattern at www.knittedknockers.org. If you aren’t able to do that, we can help you with one. We hope we can inspire lots of knitters and crocheters to make a pair or two for the women in our community who need them.
