You have heard of a pub crawl right?
Well, a Yarn Ramble is just like this only better, it is with yarn shops, farms, factories, market stands and so much more. You see, we have spoken to the wider yarn community, and we all have one thing in common – a love of what we do!
So as one BIG community we will work together over a week long of fun, workshops, discounts, activities, prizes, entertainment, gatherings and enjoyment, you are not only encouraged to visit the checkpoints/stopovers but to take advantage of the wonderful destination that will host you.
Yarn crawls are happening everywhere around the world -but not here! In the USA the crawls are fetching upwards of 1000 people. And they have between 5- 50 shops on the crawl. We want this to happen in Australia. Our mission is to find everyone associated with yarn (retailers, market stands, famers and teachers) and to let them shine.
You can join in for one day, three days or every day. The object is to do this at your leisure, so grab a group of like minded friends and join us as we showcase the greater Yarn community.
To ENTER, simply register online. Registration comes complete with your YARN Ramble, tote, passport and map.
Maps and participating stopovers (as they sign up) will be updated regularly on this page with contact details.
You MUST take your passport (name and details filled in) with you to be stamped at each stopover, to be able to obtain the special offerings. Your tote is the perfect size to fill up with goodies – make sure you bring it! This ramble is run on an honour system and the shops, sponsors and organisers rely on goodwill that all ramblers will be individually purchased.
By registering you are allowing the stopovers and organisers the rights to use your first name, location and images on social media and advertising platforms.
For each stopover visited you will have your passport stamped with their authentic stamp or signature to go into the draw to win a basketful of wonderful, to be drawn at the end of the event when all entries have been lodged.
All passports must be scanned or mailed back to us within ten days of completion of event.
The more stopovers you visit the more chance you have of being the overall winner of the major prize – a combination of donations from every stopover will have a little something special in the prize pack!
Prizes will be drawn two (2) weeks after the event is complete and everyone has had a chance to breathe, relax and return their passports.
Look at who is joining us on this journey (retail shops, mills, farms etc.)
Registration will cost $20pp.
This entitles you to take advantage of any offers provided by our stopovers between 10 – 16 July 2017.
