“We’re so excited to be bringing back the Los Angeles Yarn Crawl in 2022. After missing two years, we’re also looking forward to welcoming all new crafters who started working with yarn while we were all asked to stay at home. If this is your first crawl, or you are a seasoned veteran, it’s going to be a great weekend and there will be lots of new unique and special things to see and do!” states Maridee Dangcil, President of the L.A. County Yarn Crawl.
The 10th L.A. Yarn Crawl will be bringing a mix of old and new to the event. Returning will be the classic crawl popular passport prize promotion, where each of the fifteen shops will feature a $300 gift basket prize.

With a varying range of yarn shop business experience from 46 years to just under one year – these hard working entrepreneurs toiled diligently during the pandemic to stay connected to their respective yarn communities. Now they are returning to work together collectively in order to unite the entire Greater Los Angeles area to continue thriving through the event at a time when fiber arts healing is needed within the live event’s all-inclusive yarn communities connecting all of their local brick and mortar businesses.

County from Austria, New York, Connecticut, Minnesota, Arizona, with two U.S. globetrotters one who spent time all over the place with some time in Philadelphia, while another is from an Air Force family.
