About the Crawl

The Los Angeles Yarn Crawl is back April 20 - 23 2023!! Save the date!


This Yarn Crawl is a once-a-year opportunity to spend quality time with fellow yarn-lovers, meet-up with friends, and discover the local yarn shops you’ve always wanted to visit. Spend four days on an adventure through the most creative and inspiring yarn shops in Los Angeles County. This year’s LA Yarn Crawl is from Thursday, March 24th through Sunday, March 27th!

The dedicated entrepreneurs behind 15 of LA's best local yarn stores are hard at work planning an event to remember.  We invite all fiber enthusiasts — knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers, and felters — to explore the many shops in Los Angeles County.  Gather your best yarn friends, dust off your in-car games and favorite tunes, pack your snacks, and make your plans to traverse LA's freeways on a mission to visit every shop on the passport. 

This year we’re celebrating our 10th Los Angeles Yarn Crawl and the featured yarns at each shop will be discounted by 15% plus these yarns will be used in the free knit and crochet patterns each shop is giving away.   At each shop you can pick up a pin, opt to purchase a commemorative tote bag, grab their free patterns, enter to win prizes, join in on a trunk show or possibly two, and spoil yourself with gorgeous yarns, patterns, and supplies.

Don't forget to have your passport stamped along the way to get entered to win great prizes from your favorite yarn companies.  Each shop will be open from 10 am to 6 pm each of the four crawl days. Some shops might choose to open early or stay open late so check the store pages for individual shop hours during the crawl.

Shop Prizes 

Each store has a gift basket valued at $300 or more and each will be doing a drawing for their basket after the crawl.  The way to get entered in to win that shop's prize basket drawing is to leave your completed passport at that shop.  It's that easy!  Each Prize Basket will be unique to that shop.


Crawl Prizes

In addition to the prize basket, the Crawl is also giving away some prizes to those crawlers who visit all or most of our participating shops!
