For the Consumer

Calling all knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners and general crafters! We know yarn stimulates your senses, from feeling the fibers to seeing the variety of colors, but you have to be in the store to experience it. This is your chance to celebrate everything you love about yarn and help others enjoy those same experiences. Teach a friend to knit and bring them to your local yarn shop on April 21! Share your passion for the craft and your favorite yarn store on social media.

Local Yarn Store Day will feature items from your favorite yarn companies and designers that will only be available at brick-and-mortar local yarn shops.
