We are excited to announce that All About Yarn is participating in the second annual 2011 Portland Yarn Crawl! The Crawl takes place the first weekend in March, which will be Friday, March 4th through Sunday, March 6. Since this is an all weekend event, we will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
All About Yarn’s Crawl Hours:
Friday, March 4th: 10am-5pm
Saturday, March 5th: 10am-5pm
Sunday, March 6th: 10am-5pm
If you are unfamiliar with what a Yarn Crawl entails, it is a FREE event meant to “acquaint all fiber enthusiasts and artists with regional independent retailers and the companies that supply and distribute the yarns and accessories they carry. This is done by creating a self guided itinerary for the exploration of participating stores over the course of a weekend.” *Portland Yarn Crawl
This year 20 local shops are participating and at each shop you visit you will have a chance to enter into a raffle drawing for a lovely basket full of fiber-tastic goodies!
All About Yarn will be offering the following fabulous promotions and discounts during the 2011 Portland Yarn Crawl:
- a large selection of discounted yarns up to 50% off
- daily in-store drawings Friday, Saturday and Sunday
- FREE surplus patterns and magazines, while supplies last
- our “Sample Sale” starts Friday, March 4th at 10am and will feature a selection of our lovely hand-knit shop samples
- a special FREE GIFT for any shopper that spends $50 or more!
Not only will you be able to enjoy the raffle drawings and savings offered during the Crawl, but there will also be a cowl themed Scavenger Hunt with one lucky winner! Each of the participating shops will have a special cowl on display with a specific number attached to it. Once you have visited all the shops and collected all the numbers, you will be able to email your list to The Portland Yarn Crawl people at: email@example.com. If you have correctly identified each shop’s cowl, you will be entered into the Scavenger Hunt drawing giving you a chance to win a fabulous prize from the Crawl’s wonderful sponsors!
Good luck to all those participating in the drawings and scavenger hunt! We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces alike–come join in the fun!
