NYC Yarn crawl

What is the NYC Yarn Crawl?

An annual fall extravaganza where knitters, crocheters, spinners, felters, weavers, dyers and fiber craft lovers of all kinds visit Manhattan and Brooklyn's finest local yarn shops, the NYC Yarn Crawl celebrates our needlecraft community and love of fiber arts.  With stores in both Brooklyn and Manhattan, crawlers visit a wonderful variety of neighborhoods across NYC, and with shops ranging from tiny jewels to needlework meccas, and there are new discoveries at every turn.

Everyone is welcome at the three-day event where each shop hosts special events, guests and trunk shows, and you'll find exclusive items and discounts only available during the crawl.  Anyone can enter to win amazing prizes from our generous sponsors.  

Join us Friday September 27 through Sunday September 29 2019.

What is the Brooklyn Yarn Crawl?

A mini-version of its older sibling, the Brooklyn Yarn Crawl is a cosy, two-day event each April - just in time to sate your spring fever with summer projects in all their cotton, linen and silky glory.  With exclusively Brooklyn stores to visit, you'll have time to savor all the offerings at each shop and really get to know its personality.    

Drool over the latest hand-dyed yarns; discover new patterns, tools and accessories; get amazing discounts, meet fellow fiber enthusiasts and friendly shop owners; and of course win prizes from our amazing sponsors.  

At the same time you get to explore the biggest borough's diverse neighborhoods of Windsor Terrace, Park Slope, Red Hook and Cobble Hill.  Along the way, stop at Brooklyn 's great restaurants for sips and eats, and show off your score!​

Saturday - Sunday April 25th - 26th, 2020

HOW TO participate

How does the crawl work? 

There is no charge to crawl, and no pre-registration necessary.  Things to prepare before you go out: tell your friends, print up a map (or check out our digital Google version), decide on your route, then just have fun!

1. Use our Google map or download the .pdf version and print it yourself to plan your crawl (don't forget to check for subway and bus schedule changes here.)  Then the fun starts! 

2. Visit participating local yarn shops  and drool over all the great deals and exclusive colorways.  Using public transport is probably the easiest way to get around, but make sure you check here for any schedule changes first!

3.  Sign in at each store you visit for a chance to win one of the crawl raffle prizes.  Many shops have their own prizes too.

4.  Optional!  Participate in the annual scavenger hunt by visiting as many shops as possible.  Follow the directions here to enter the drawing to win one of the grand prizes.
