The I-75 Yarn Crawl is this Weekend in Ohio and Kentucky!

I-75saveThe annual I-75 Yarn Crawl is happening this weekend, Aug 8-10 along the I-75 Corridor in Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

It works like this. First you purchase a Passport booklet for $5, which contains maps and coupons for all the Yarn Crawl shops. The first 250 passports sold will also come with a Yarn Crawl tote bag. During the crawl, you may go to as many or few shops as you like, but be sure to get your passport stamped at each shop you visit. Stamps earn you the right to participate in various raffles and more stamps = bigger and better raffles.  We have prepared an Interactive Map of the I-75 Yarn Crawl for your use with a little information about each shop. You can get started by ordering a passport through the I-75 Yarn Crawl Website. It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun!
