Best Little Yarn Crawl in Texas
September 28, 2012 § Leave a comment
We were happy to blog about this great event last year and everyone had such an amazing time, we thought we’d blog about it again!
Here’s what Hill Country Yarn has to say about it: Join us for four fun-filled days crawling your way through 10 yarn shops around and about central Texas! Bring family, meet up with friends, make new ones, and see all the great things each shop has to offer. To add to the fun you will have lots of chances to win PRIZES! Along the way, we hope you discover new ways to fuel your fiber passion and meet local fiber artists up close and delight in their wares. Best of all, rekindle your love for all the yarn and fibers the Hill Country has to offer.
How to Play: Pay an entry fee of $20 for each participant and you will receive your Yarn Crawl Passport and 2012 Commemorative Carry-All bag. Then plan your route over 4 days to get to as many of the ten shops as you possibly can. At each shop you will get your passport stamped, check out all the cool things they have to offer and get a free gift!
How To Win:
Each Yarn Shop will have over 10 prizes to give away!
Visit as many shops as you can in the 4 days. The more shops on your crawl – the better your chances are to win cool prizes! Turn in your passport at the last shop you are in – everyone who makes it to all 10 shops will be entered into the drawing for the $500 Grand Prize!
At each store you will:
- Get your passport stamped
- Get your free gift from that store
- Enter the drawing for that store’s share of the prizes
Rules of Engagement: We’re easy!!
- Each participant must have their own passport
- Each participant must fill out the contact information on the passport
- Each participant must be present at each yarn shop to receive their stamp (i.e. – no proxy crawling)
- Each participant must be at least 10 years of age
All passports must be turned in by end of business on Monday, Oct. 8th
Please print clearly on your passport – we need this information to contact you!!
All Winners will be posted online and will be contacted by the shop they have chosen to hold their prize. *
