Greater Traverse Yarn Shop Hop

Join Northern Michigan knitters in a special weekend event: the first-ever Greater Traverse Yarn Shop Hop 2012 on Friday, October 19th and Saturday, October 20th.

Take an entire weekend to enjoy the experience of shopping six different yarn shops around the Grand Traverse Area, where each shop will highlight unique yarns and patterns, offer refreshments and ideas for handmade holiday gifts.  Purchasing a $5.00 passport will gain you access to the shop hop.  With a $15 purchase at each store, your passport is stamped and eligible to be entered into a drawing for that shop’s prize basket.  Stamp your passport at all six shops and you’ll be eligible to win the Grand Prize Basket drawing, which includes a $50 gift certificate to each shop.

The participating yarn shops are The Yarn Market of Beulah, Thistledown Shoppe of Suttons Bay, Wool & Honey of Cedar, The Warm Fuzzy of Alden and Yarn Quest and Lost Art, both of Traverse City.  Each shop will be open from 12-8 p.m. on Friday, October 19th and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 20th.  Join in the spirit of community by visiting all of these specialty shops.  Who knows what you’ll find—or win!
