*Don’t worry, your calendar isn’t broken! I’m migrating some old posts from my Museum of Kitschy Stitches blog to this one as part of a reorganization scheme.*

Are you in New England? Need more yarn. Of course you do!

Join the first annual Great Rhody Yarn Crawl this weekend for an amazing list of yarn shops, prizes, vendors, and even a good cause! Crawlers will earn an extra raffle ticket for each shop’s raffle by making a donation to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Donation boxes will be located at each stop of the yarn crawl.

You can find their Ravelry group.

I’ll be one of the vendors and will have the books for sale, as well as the trunk show in hand. I will also be selling some of my wares, including drawstring project bags (I just made some that are 14”x14”, they’re perfect for sweaters on the go).

Unfortunately Caro can’t make it, but I did make her sign some books in advance, so she’ll be there in Sharpie.

The vendors will be in the Slater Mill Museum, an old textile mill with all kinds of cool old machinery to look at. I am also considering bringing my brand new toy – a circular sock machine!

See you there, it’s going to be amazing. The organizers, Traci and Chrystee, have gone above and beyond to create something really special. Don’t miss out!
