How To Host a Local Yarn Store Day Event

Posted By TNNA Editor, Monday, March 5, 2018

Local Yarn Story Day


The inaugural Local Yarn Store day is approaching and we want to make sure all retailers in our membership are armed with the tools you need to host the best event possible for your community and customers.


“We’re very excited about Local Yarn Store day [because …] we know that the local store is the place to see and feel new products and to experience the community that comes with fellow fiber fans,” said Oz Barron, owner of Ball & Skein & More and TNNA Yarn Group volunteer. “In addition to the unique items produced by some of our vendors, we’re planning on making a fun and fiber-filled event centered around the local yarn store. We say, jump in and show your community the value of the brick and mortar yarn store!”


How can you join Barron and others to drive awareness and celebrate local yarn shops? We’ll tell you!


Plan an Event

Create a special event just for your customers and vendors on April 21. The list of participating stores continues to grow and we want YOU to be part of it. A special event is your chance to reel in and encourage your community to support small businesses, all while showing the value a local craft store can bring.
