Guidelines 2015

Pick up your free passport at any participating yarn shop or print it out here. Visit as many or as few shops as you like, just get out to our local yarn shops of Long Island. To enter your passport for the Grand Prize you must receive a stamp from all 9 shops. You can start your crawl at any participating shop – there is no official order. See this page for complete list of participating stores.  No purchase required to stamp your passport at each shop.

Once you’ve received a stamp from at least 9 shops, turn in your passport at any shop to be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing (more information and complete list of rules below).


Each shop will be offering specials for the yarn crawl – either a special kit or discount.  Details of each shop’s special plans are being posted to the blog with a new update every few days leading up to the crawl.


Purchase your Long Island Yarn Crawl bag at participating yarn shops (while supplies last) for $5, or receive one free with a minimum purchase of $20.
