Guidelines

Passports

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. Drop off a passport with any stamp on it for an additional drawing.  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.  Get your passport!

Turn in your passport at any shop to be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing (more information and complete list of rules below).

Specials

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.

Swag

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 $40.

Shop Prizes

Each shop has as door prize drawing where a $40 minimum purchase is your entry into the drawing.

Grand Prizes

No purchase required to stamp your passport at each shop.  Turn in your stamped passport at any store.  Crawlers who collect stamps from all 9 stores will be entered to win the grand prize of a $100 gift card from each of the participating stores, or second prize, over $400 of yarn donated by gold sponsor Knitting Fever. Participants who drop off a passport with fewer than 9 stamps will be entered to win a separate drawing. Further prizes will be announced as the yarn crawl approaches!
