COVID Protocol

We know COVID is still here and can impact events, especially since we haven’t been able to hold our event for the past two years. We’re doing all we can keep both you and us safe as we enjoy this weekend of fiber fun. 

All shops participating in the 2022 Los Angeles Yarn Crawl are located in LA County and are following the current county mandates with regards to masks indoors. 

As of 10/4/21, EVERYONE, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask:  In all indoor public settings, venues, gatherings, and public and private businesses in Los Angeles County.

In addition to the county mandate, shops may have instituted their own requirements that will need to be adhered to during this year's event.  Please be respectful of these additional guidelines and as you make your way to each of the individual participating yarn crawl shops.  Remember, each store varies in actual physical size. Every shop wants to put proper safety protocol in place as it relates to their actual store layout and physical distancing capabilities to help you have the best experience possible.

Alamitos Bay Yarn Company
We are currently following the Los Angeles County mandate of masking up indoors.

The Altered Stitch
People must wear a mask (no matter their vaccination status) and sanitize on the way into the shop. 

Buku Yarns
People must wear a mask (no matter their vaccination status) and sanitize on the way into the shop. 

Gather DTLA
Masks are required at all times when in the shop. And we have hand sanitizer available for people. Currently, we do not limit the number of shoppers, but during the Crawl we will allow up to 12 people in at a time.

Jennifer Knits
We require masks at all times, even for those that are vaccinated. We sanitize the store often throughout the day and I require my employees to thoroughly scrub their hands with soap and water at least once an hour. We require clients show us their vaccination card if they want to sit at our table. We will continue this forever.

L’Atelier & L’Atelier on Ventura
At this time, we required masking and we try to keep the population down.

The Knitting Tree LA
Masks will be required.  We will provide them if customers can't.  Hand sanitizer at every table.  We'll keep the doors open for ventilation.  Luckily, our store is very big, so people can spread out.

The Little Knittery
Everyone that comes to the shop must wear a mask. I have hand sanitizer available. I follow whatever guidelines the city puts into place for Covid precautions.

Phebie's NeedleArt
Masks are required, we are currently limiting the number of shoppers in the store to four at a time. 

Stitches In Time
I'll be following the LA County rules and I have a fairly large shop so we can accommodate a nice number of shoppers. If we have too many, we would certainly ask folks to space themselves accordingly or even step outside until some folks leave.

Wildfiber Studio
We do require shoppers to wear masks and use our hand sanitizer as they enter our shop. We may decide to restrict capacity however, we don't know what the county will require in March 2022.

Wollhaus requires masks for customers and provides hand sanitizer. If we have a large number of people who show up at the same time, we may limit the number of people in the shop. Of course, we will implement any LA County or Pasadena City requirements.

Yarnaholic™ Store & Boutique
We will require masks in the shop. We will limit the number of people (4-5) inside at a given time. However, we will have an outdoor shopping area set up as well. Chairs and tables will also be outside.

Yarnover Truck
In addition to following the county's mask requirements for everyone to wear masks indoors, since our space is small, we're limiting the number of shoppers on the Truck. We allow 2 shoppers. or 1 household with children on the Truck at a time. Again, everyone must wear a mask and we ask all to clean their hands with provided sanitizer before shopping.


We will keep monitoring County requirements and if these changes, we’ll update this page accordingly.
