If you are a yarn shop located a stone’s throw from the beltway, sign up for the Charm City Yarn Crawl through the handy form below!
Here are the details for the 2018 Charm City Yarn Crawl:
How do my customers participate?
- Customers purchase a CCYC canvas tote for $15 from participating yarn shops. They may not use previous year’s totes.
This tote entitles customer to nine days of discounts at Baltimore-area participating yarn shops. Customers receive 20% off entire purchase of full-priced yarn, fiber & patterns at each store during the nine days of the CCYC.
- Customers collect a stamp on their CCYC passport (included with the tote) at each participating shop and are entered for a prize drawing at the store of their choice after collecting 8 stamps from shops. The prize packages are valued at $100. Purchase is not necessary for them to earn a stamp. They need only visit the shop with the current CCYC tote and passport.
What we provide:
