PURL Indiana Yarn Crawl

It's almost that time again!  The PURL Indiana Yarn Crawl is coming August 11-19, 2023.  So here is all the info I have to give you.

There are 5 shops participating this year!  Links and details below:

Here is a link to a Google Maps of all the stops to help you plan your trip!  Each store will have their own events and prizes going on, so check out their schedules when you are making your plans.

To support your favorite local shop, just drop by and buy something or say hello!  To play for prizes, you will need to do a couple things:

  1. Buy a passport for the event.  Once pre-orders are available this can be purchased from any participating LYS.  You will have the option of grabbing just the passport, the passport plus the exclusive skein of yarn, or just the exclusive yarn. Your passport purchase will include the swag bag and exclusive stitch marker.  This year the stitch markers will be made by Studio Knitboop.
  2. During the crawl, take your passport to each of the stores and purchase something to get a stamp. The passport will get you 10% off your purchase at all of the participating shops.
  3. Once you have received a stamp from all of the shops, drop it off!  Each shop will be drawing 4 winners from their turned in passports to receive a $25 gift card from that store.  So leave your passport at the store you most want to be in the drawing for prizes.

Preorders for the exclusive skein and passports are now available!

*Pre-orders on yarn are over, but passports are still available!  And some shops may have a small amount of skeins in store during the crawl.

Throughout the crawl each store will be open during the hours of 10AM-5PM.  There may be time zone issues, so make sure to watch that when you are planning!  And our shop will also be open our normal hours, so that means Wednesday and Friday Nights until 8PM and Saturday until 7PM.
