Okay all my fellow Texans…this one is for you! I don’t live close enough for this but if I can get my husband to watch my daughter I may take the 4-5 hour drive down to where this is because my sister lives along the way and I can always make a pit stop…or not.
Prepare yourself for the 6th Annual Best Little Yarn Crawl in Texas! It will take place over Columbus Day Weekend, October 5th-8th, 2012. There isn’t much information up on their website about the 2012 Event yet but you can read all about last years yarn crawl to learn more about what to expect.
From what I gather…you pay a $20 entrance fee and you will receive your Yarn Crawl Passport and Carry-All Bag. You will have 4 days to visit all the shops participating. At each shop have your passport stamped and if you visit them all, turn in your passport at the last shop to be entered to win the Grand Prize. Each shop will be handing out prizes to the Yarn Crawl Participants. Last year each shop had 10 prizes to hand out, who know? This year there may be more.
You canof the 10 shops that participated last year. They are spread out from Austin to San Antonio (the 35) and then back up the 87 to Marble Falls. I have passed through this areas how many times going to visit my sister and San Antonio and never once looked up yarn shops…I should have. These shops look fabulous. If I can’t attend the yarn crawl I will make sure to take the time to stop and check out these shops the next time I head down to San Antonio.
I have not traveled to Austin yet but based on the fact that there are 3 amazing yarn shops there, I see a trip coming up in the near future. Let me know if you plan to attend or if you attended The Best Little Yarn Crawl in Texas last year. I would love to hear about it!
