What on Earth is the Rhody Yarn Crawl?? For anyone who loves yarn, whether you knit, crochet, spin, weave, or just generally appreciate all things wool, this event is so much fun!
It's a pub crawl for yarn that takes place over an entire weekend (this weekend, April 17-19) in the state of Rhode Island, without the hangover. 14+ yarn stores around the state participate, including a shop on Block Island. The shops offer specials to those customers who have a GRYC (Great Rhody Yarn Crawl) passport. Donating a food item gets you a chance at winning a raffle at each of the yarn shops you visit. Some of the raffle baskets are sa-weet. There is even a Treasure Hunt--you'll have to spot the coordinator somewhere around town at one of the shops.
You may be wondering how is Dancing Threads RI involved?? On Sunday, there is a fantastic vendor marketplace with artisans making things that support yarn enthusiasts. Here is a link to all those participating this year. I'll have all of my knitting accessories and project bags available!
The barn at Mount Hope Farm is absolutely beautiful. All the vendors will be available from 11-4, and Acacia Cafe will have their food truck with yummy lunch options. Coffee Guy will be there all day keeping us going.
What exactly will I have available at the market? Take a peek.
I hope to see you Sunday! 11-4 at Mount Hope Farm, Friday through Sunday at yarn shops throughout the state.
