Last Chance: Yarn Crawl Tote Bags!

This is it: your last chance to pre-order and reserve the tote bag for the 2019 Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl! Pre-orders end August 16th, so don’t delay!

All of the information can be found here. Please note that these pre-orders are to reserve your tote bag only; they will be available for pick-up during the Yarn Crawl at the shop of your choice. Although shops may have a very limited supply of tote bags available for purchase during the crawl, the only way to guarantee that you’ll get one is to reserve it now! These roomy, 100% cotton totes cost $18 (plus tax) and are the perfect way to transport your yarn during your yarn crawl journey.

Reserve your tote bag here! Happy knitting and see you at the yarn crawl!

*The First Annual Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl is coming! From September 19th-22nd, 11 yarn shops throughout the Lake Tahoe and Reno areas will be featuring special yarns, free patterns, prizes, trunk shows and more! This is a wonderful way to tour the scenic Sierra Nevada mountains while stocking up for your fall knitting. More details coming soon!
