The 4th Annual Great Northern Yarn Haul begins Friday, July 12th and ends August 4th.  With 23 yarn shops participating, a number of new ones, this is a fun way for knitters to explore not just new shops, but new towns and areas in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.  Day-tripping, or staying overnight, knitters receive give-aways from the shops,  get to meet other knitters, and are introduced to new yarns, patterns, and products.  The Yarn Haul celebrates the fiber arts and promotes a culture of sharing.  Love.Yarn.Shop. will kick-off the Haul on Friday, the 12th from 5-7 with door prizes and nibbles and sips.
