If you love the Hudson Valley and knitting, crochet or any fiber art, you’re invited to hop aboard the 2016 Hudson Valley Yarn Shop Cruise!
This event is a self-guided tour of the yarn shops in the Hudson Valley.
Beginning on Saturday, June 18, World Wide Knit in Public Day, and ending Monday, September 5, Labor Day, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the unique qualities that make each shop and its town beautiful. We at The Warm Ewe hope you'll join us for our kick off event on World Wide Knit in Public Day, at the gazebo on the corner of Park Row and Main St, here in Chatham, NY from 2-5 pm. Bring a chair and your knitting or crochet and join your friends and neighbors for community knitting in the great outdoors! Refreshments will be served.
Start your yarn cruise by visiting The Warm Ewe (or any other shop on the Trail) to purchase this year’s beautiful tote bag. Inside you’ll find all you need to participate in the events at each shop and be eligible for prize drawings after Labor Day. The cruise ends with a real cruise down the Hudson aboard the Pride of the Hudson on September 18. Be sure to check out our newsletter, Facebook page and Ravelry group (Friends of the Warm Ewe) for event announcements throughout the cruise!
