Every day on Art&Seek, we’re talking to people who have tips on art in the time of social distancing. Share yours with us on Facebook, Instagram, or @artandseek on Twitter. Click above to hear Ginger Hayes from the North Texas Yarn Crawl, share her tip with KERA’s Nilufer Arsala.
The North Texas Yarn Crawl is an event designed for the fiber community of North Texas to celebrate all things yarn, fiber, and knitting in safe, socially distanced environments.
The free crawl will take place from September 11 to 20, 2020 and folks can find a map of all 12 participating shops and their locations on the North Texas Yarn Crawl’s website. The hours for the crawl will be from 10 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturdays, and from 12 pm to 5 pm on Sundays. Certain shops may have abbreviated or additional hours.
Here’s how it works:
- Visit the shops participating in the crawl by using the Yarn Crawl Map
- Grab a free Travel Guide and Passport at the first shop you visit
- Get your Passport stamped at each location you visit
- Purchase a special 2020 Yarn Crawl canvas shopping bag and collect buttons at each shop
- Enjoy shopping and special events at each shop
- Turn in your passport at the last shop you visit or mail it in to be eligible for prizes
Each shop has different special events and may offer discounts. Check the North Texas Yarn Crawl’s event page to keep up-to-date on exclusive shop events.
Some shops are offering appointment-only shopping and/or offering virtual and online events. Check each shop’s website for more information on their policies, guidelines, and special events. The North Texas Yarn Crawl canvas shopping bag can be pre-ordered by contacting any of the fiber shops. The full list of all 12 shops is available online.
