What is the Illiana Yarn Crawl?

The Crawl is a self-guided tour of the premier yarn shops along the Indiana/Illinois border from July 14th through the 23rd, 2017, for all knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners,  and  other fiber artists. Make sure to tell your friends, plan your trip, and get your fiber on!

Where/How do I purchase my Passport?

The Passport is available at any of the participating yarn shops.  Cost is $10.


There will be a number of prizes awarded by the Illiana Yarn Crawl.  Based on the number of stamps in your Passport, your Passport will be placed in a drawing for the grand prizes.

Plus, each shop may sponsor their own drawings or giveaways.

Do I have to go to all the shops to be eligible for the drawing prizes? Why do I need a passport?

You must visit, at least, four (4) shops to be entered into the drawings.  Just be sure to pick up your Crawl Passport at your first shop or bring it with you and drop it off at your last shop to be entered in the raffles.  Also, make sure your name, local yarn shop, phone number, and email are clearly legible on  your passport.

Passport Holders will receive the following:

  • 10% off all regularly priced merchandise on one shopping trip per store. Some exclusions may apply per each store owners discretion.
  • Door prizes and Drawings!
    To be entered to win any Illiana Yarn Crawl Drawings, you must go to at least 4 shops. Prizes will increasingly grow in worth and size depending on how many stores you reach. Anyone who has all of the shops stamped in their passport will have their name entered in a drawing for the Grand Prize! You do not have to be present to win a prize, please plan on picking up any winnings at your local yarn shop.
  • Each store may hold their own drawings and door prizes, not to be confused with the Illiana Yarn Crawl Drawings (even more chances to win!).
  • A great discount on Illiana Yarn Crawl Project exclusive yarn. Different colors will be at each shop, collect all 8!
