We're reintroducing you to 5 more unique shops, plus talking about safely Celebrating 10 Years of the L.A. County Yarn Crawl. February 1, 2022 09:38

We feel the need to talk a bit about Covid and how we're handling it for the 2022 L.A. Yarn Crawl.  The decision to hold the Crawl was not made lightly. We care about the health and safety of all of you, our vendors, and our staff.

We’d like to assure you that each and every shop is adhering to strict Covid protocols mandated by the State of California and Los Angeles County.   We've created a list on our website of the Covid protocols each shop is following. Click HERE to see the full list.  As circumstances change, shops may update these protocols. We encourage everyone to visit this page before you start your crawl so you know what each shop is doing.

We have a wide variety of shops participating in the crawl and they vary in size and layout. Because of this, some may be limiting the number of customers allowed in the shop during the Crawl. So please be patient if you need to wait outside if a shop is especially busy. We recommend bringing along your project so you’ll have something to do if there is a wait.

It has been a long two years since our last Yarn Crawl. But at this point, all shops are currently open and customers have been telling us they are looking forward to the next event.  With the safety protocols in place and the fact that over 76% of adults in LA County are fully vaccinated, the stores as a group feel we can go forward with the LA Yarn Crawl this year. Here are the final five shops you'll be visiting during the 2022 L.A. County Yarn Crawl!
