This year the tour celebrated Year 12 and featured 26 shops, spanning seven Western Washington counties.  It took place Wednesday-Sunday, May 17th-21st 2017 and each shop had extended hours to serve our fiber-loving friends.  This year’s theme was Stitch Two Together.

Each shop had a free collector’s button, gave away free knit and crochet patterns, and discounted yarns for those patterns.  The tour hosted a daily drawing at each shop and gave away $1500 in grand prize gift certificates.  We had more sponsor support than ever and attendees coming from all over the nation and the world.
