Don’t miss  your chance to visit twelve amazing yarn stores, along the I-91 corridor, with tons of chances to win some incredible prizes!

Join the fun at the 2016 I-91 Shop Hop! Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com
Here’s why you should join us and make a weekend out of it! We’ve designed a calendar just for you. Each store has designed a pattern for their month, and collecting all 12 gives you a year full of fantastic new knitting. You have to visit each store to collect the whole calendar, and kits for each design are available at that month’s store. If you can’t make it to all the shops, no worries you will have a chance to purchase the calendar after the Shop Hop. You will also be entered in the daily gift basket drawing, with each basket including a certificate  from each of the participating shops, wonderful yarns, patterns, kits, needles, and more! On Sunday, each shop will have two drawings, one for the daily basket as well as a chance to win a wooden swift and ball winder set. All customers who entered in the previous raffles during the weekend will be entered for a chance to win the ball winder and swift set. There is also a chance to win the grand prize! When your entire passport is stamped, simply leave the stamped passport at the last store you visit and it will be entered in the grand prize drawing.

Here’s your chance to explore new yarn shops and win some great prizes. You can complete the Shop Hop all in one day, or make it a weekend event.
