We are participating in a Yarn Crawl called the Deep South Shop Hop again this year! If you would like to participate in this fun voyage though six of the South's premier yarn shops, please pick up your "Passport" at Yarn Nook soon. 

If you succeed in visiting all six stores and have your passport stamped at each one, your name will be entered in the Shop Hop prize drawing. At each store you will find project ideas, patterns and special surprises. Last year was very successful for all of us and it gave us the opportunity to meet lots of people from the surrounding areas. 

The Yarn Crawl will take place June 2nd thru July 1st. Participating stores are Yarn Nook, Knits by Nana, The French Knot, McNeedles, the Quarter Stitch, and Mobile Yarn.
