IllianaYarnCrawl wo date

Welcome to the homepage of the Illiana Yarn Crawl 2017!


Hello fans of the Illiana Yarn Crawl!

It’s time to start making your plans for the 2017 Illiana Yarn Crawl. The dates are July 14 – 23. Mark your calendar and start planning your route. This year’s crawl is going to be so fun!

Let’s start at the beginning. Due to family obligations, River Knits in Layfayette, IN, will not be a part of the Crawl this year. We certainly hope they will be able to join us again in the future. So, this year there will be 8 fabulous yarn shops for you to visit during the 10-day crawl.  Check them out in the sidebar.

The Crawl shops recently met to begin planning the goodie bags, prizes, official yarn, and patterns. They discussed what worked well and any tweaks that need to be made to the rules. Passports will remain $10 and will entitle you to receive one goodie bag, entries into the prize drawing, and the opportunity to purchase the official Illiana Yarn Crawl yarn by Wonderland Yarns. We will again feature 8 mini skeins, one color per store. There are 7 lovely gradients with the 8th adding a pop of color. This year the patterns are being designed by Jane Campbell of Monroe City, Indiana. She is designing one knit and one crochet pattern. We think you will love her work.

All the shops are busy collecting prizes, gathering items for the goodie bags, and working hard to make the 2017 Illiana Yarn Crawl better than ever. As more details become finalized, we will be posting updates and pictures.
