RUN, DON’T WALK
Need a reason to go to London this fall? The Great London Yarn Crawl is celebrating their 5th anniversary on September 9, 2017. Grab your ticket now – like seriously, now, because after being on sale less than a week, only a few remain – and get ready to be guided through some of London’s most revered yarn shops. Then, join the entire crawl for an after-party and yarn market (like you need an excuse to buy more yarn).
