Yarn Crawl Discount

The 10% off all regular priced yarn is still available to our customers.

We know that our community has been affected by the pandemic, makers and LYS's alike.  So for this year, we are offering the option to OPT OUT of the 10% discount for an extra raffle ticket for the shop raffle basket.  This is an option for anyone who is willing and able to support in this way.

Passport & Raffles

Your Chicago Yarn Crawl Passports will be available as a PDF download, but we will not be collecting "stamps" this year. Instead, there are may ways to enter into a raffle basket:

1. Participate in a live event

2. Visit a shop

3. Get an extra raffle ticket by opting out of the 10% discount
