2nd Annual Sierra Nevada (Virtual) Yarn Crawl: This Weekend!

It’s almost here! The Second Annual Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl takes place over 3 days from September 11-13, 2020. It’s a free event designed to celebrate friends, community and all things fiber!

This year’s crawl will be a little different. To keep our community safe, while also creating a fun celebration, we decided to turn this year’s event into a Virtual Yarn Crawl. Settle in with some knitting and join us! All of the details on how to crawl can be found on the Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl website. This event is FREE and no registration is necessary.

Each day, the individual yarn shops will host various events, such as featured videos, trunk shows, virtual meet and greets and exclusive offers on yarn and notions! You can also enter to win fabulous prizes by playing BINGO with us!
