Our theme this year was “Celebrating Community”.  Our 2018 logo, ‘from mountain to river to sound through country city and town’ is meant to honor and celebrate the region where we live and work and create.

This year’s tour was a bit different with a pre-tour Afghan Square Project.  The actual tour, May 16th-20th, was highly attended.  Canadians, Minnesotans, Californians, residents of Hawaii and others from across our country and the world attended the 13th annual event.  And welcome to our men!  We had more men win our daily drawing prizes than ever before.

Whether you visited all 26 shops, from Lynden to Kent, Port Townsend to Carnation, or just your own local yarn shop, we were inspired by your excitement, appreciation, and creativity.  From all of us, THANK YOU for making our LYSTour one of the largest and longest running in the nation.
