2021 is finally here and we are delighted have three of our favorite events scheduled so far….
WORLD WIDE KNIT IN PUBLIC DAY – JUNE 12, 2021
World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. WWKIPDAY is unique, in that it’s the largest knitter run event in the world. Each local event is put together by volunteers. In 2005, there were about 25 local events around the world. In 2006, there were about 70 local events, and in 2007, almost 200. In 2016, there were 1015 in 57 countries!
In 2019, we had over 40 knitters join our KIP. This year we will again “Knitting Along Commercial” from 10am-12pm. Register by calling us or emailing us. The shop will offer a free 2021 KIP pattern and 10% off the yarn AND a chance to win a shop gift certificate for those who register. We will meet at the shop beginning at 9:30am to get ready, meet and greet and draw for the prize winner just before 10am (must be present to win.) Be sure to bring your mask and weather appropriate gear and refreshments.
PUGET SOUND LOCAL YARN SHOP TOUR – AUGUST 13-22, 2021
The beloved Puget Sound LYSTour is back and we are excited to participate again. In 2020, we cancelled the event because of the pandemic and so will celebrate the tour’s 15th year milestone anniversary belatedly in 2021.
Because of the pandemic, the event has moved, this year only, to August. It will 10 days long, to prevent overcrowding in shops while still giving customers plenty of time to visit them all. The most exciting change is that along with traditional in-shop tour, there will be an online tour and prize options, too.
As always, each shop will have a free knit and crochet pattern designed just for this event, a discount on featured yarns, exclusive Tour merchandise for sale, daily drawings for prizes, and a grand prize drawing for visitors who visit at a minimum number of shops.
