  • Why: Because we all love yarn and want to show our support for our fellow enthusiasts.
  • How: Pick up your punch card (like a passport) at any participating shop during that weekend. You can start anytime the shop is open on Friday! Take the card with you to all shops you visit to get it stamped. Make sure to enter drawings for prizes at all of the stores you visit!  Leave your card with the final shop you visit and you'll be automatically entered to win many possible prizes. The more places you visit, the bigger the prizes will be! Everyone who participates will receive an email coupon that you can use at any participating shop in the month of November for 10% off regularly-priced items!
  • PUNCH CARDS: Anytime during open hours at any participating store starting Friday you can pick up your punch cards/passports to start your Shop Hop. Leave your card at the last shop you visit to be entered for prizes! You will be contacted if you win.
