The second Great Northern Yarn Haul will be held from Friday, July 7th, to Sunday, July 23rd and include 23 shops from New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. Fiber enthusiasts can join at their local yarn shop with a $20 purchase, starting July 7th. At Love.Yarn.Shop. we are having a kick-off on Friday, July 7th at 5:00 with door prizes, nibbles, and sips, and great company, but it you can’t make it that night you can pick up your bag and brochures in advance. There are only 20 bags at each shop, so make sure to reserve one for yourself! Each shop has 30 brochures, so you can still participate with a purchase, but unfortunately won’t get the tote bag. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for upcoming details!
A little history…
The first Great Northern Yarn Haul was held from July 8-17, 2016 and included 16 yarn shops across Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Participants went to their local yarn shop and with a purchase of $20 or more received a brochure with their “passport” and a tote bag. Each store they visited had a goody bag with discount coupons and “give aways.” The passports were mailed in by July 31st and a winner (Stephanie Brooks from Wallingford, VT) was chosen who received a box with gifts from each of the participating stores.
