The Best Little Yarn Crawl in Texas
October 7th-16th, 2016
Shops will be open 10am-6pm every day of the crawl. On Sunday October 16th the hours will be 10am-5pm.
(Note that some shops will have extended hours on certain days. Please check individual store pages for their specific crawl hours.)
Join us for ten fun-filled days crawling your way through 19 yarn shops around and about central Texas! Bring family, meet up with friends, make new ones, and see all the great things each shop has to offer. To add to the fun, you will have lots of chances to win PRIZES! Along the way, we hope you discover new ways to fuel your fiber passion and meet local fiber artists up close and delight in their wares. Best of all, rekindle your love for all the yarn and fibers the Hill Country has to offer.
Please Note: There has been an error on the passport map inside your passports. Please change the very top 1 on I-35 to the number 12 and change the number 85 on Hwy 290 to an 18. This will ensure that you don’t miss one shop along the way. I apologize for the inconvenience.
