About Us

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 last 6 years, it has spanned five full days with 25 shops, located in the central and north Puget Sound areas.

Each year, the participating 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 May 13th-17th, 2020 for our 15th Anniversary!
