Fiber Gallery takes part in annual ‘yarn tour’

May 19th, 2010 · Comments

The fifth annual “Destination: Yarn” tour takes needle crafters on a journey to 25 locally-owned yarn stores all around Puget Sound, including The Fiber Gallery at 7000 Greenwood Ave. N.

The yarn tour is Thursday through Sunday. Stores will stay open late and offer discounts, freebies and prizes. Pick up a tour passport at any store on the tour.

Every year, thousands of the nation’s 38 million needle crafters take on the tour. Fans young and old will visit anywhere from a handful to ALL of the stores on the tour with a chance to win a special prize for those that hit all 25 stores in just 4 days. Just last year, stores on the tour opened their doors over 7,500 times during Destination:Yarn. While some crafters will drive the tour solo, many are loading up the van or bus to bring their own knitting and crocheting communities from store to store.
