Local Yarn Store Tour
The new LYS Tour dates are:
Friday, Aug 13th - Sunday, Aug 22nd, 2021
Shops will all keep the minimum daily hours of 11am - 5 pm.
Please note that Monday, Aug 16 is a "rest" day, and most shops will be closed. Contact individual shops directly to inquire about their extended hours and/or if they plan to be open on that Monday.
This year, the LYS Tour will be held both in person, and online.
In the coming days we will post very detailed information about
how to tour both ways.
As always, each shop will have a free knit and crochet pattern, a discount on featured yarn, exclusive Tour merchandise for sale,
daily drawings for prizes and shop gift certificates.
Grand prize drawings will be held as well:
1 prize for virtual tourists who visit all 20 shop websites
and fill out the required form.
11 prizes for in-person tourists who visit at least 15 shops,
and 3 prizes for in-person tourists who visit all 20 shop.
180 daily drawing prizes and
15 grand prizes for 15 years of the LYS Tour.
That sounds like a fun party. We hope you join!
