Founded in 2006 by a few shop owners who liked to party (Victoria!), the first Puget Sound LYS Tour included 12 shops. With our region well known for quality yarn shops, the Tour quickly grew in size. In addition to being the first of it's kind, we believe we are also the largest Yarn Store Tour in the Nation.
In 2006, the Tour began as a long, three-day weekend. Then it expanded to four days. For the 6 years, it spanned five days with 25 shops. The 15th Anniversary Tour in 2020 was cancelled because of COVID-19, but we are celebrating the Anniversary belated this year. To be mindful of social distancing, we've expanded the Tour to 10 days, with 20 shops participating.
Each year, the shops gather and work together to plan a fabulous Tour with prizes, free patterns, and discounts.
Our goal is to help our customers learn, grow, and become successful in the art and craft we all love. That’s the principle that’s been driving the LYS Tour all these years. That, and we all like to party.
Please join us Friday, August 13th through Sunday, August 22nd, for our 15th Anniversary!
