Registered guests will receive their personal Passports and begin to collect each official yarn store’s “stamp” as they visit and register for prizes generously donated by national and local yarn vendors! Don’t miss the outstanding promotions and specials in each yarn store, as registered guests/customers are entered into a drawing for that store’s grand prize basket filled to the rim with goodies – with an estimated value of $400.00 each! The Grand Prize drawing (multiple $1,200 Swag Bags), will be for the first registered guests who complete their Passports by having all of the local yarn store’s official stamps in their Passports.
