We’re delighted to be a passport stop again for the Woolith Fair Great Vancouver yarn crawl that’s organized by the Westcoast Knitters Guild. Starting this Friday, April 28 to Sunday the 30th, local yarn stores from Vancouver to Abbotsford will be celebrating all things yarny with fun discounts and promotions. We’re open regular hours Friday and Saturday of this event, with the addition of special yarn crawl hours on Sunday from 11-3.
At 88 Stitches we’re offering Woolith Fair participants 20% off all yarn in stock, with the exception of Sweet Fiber Yarns, and we’re filling up our clearance shelves with 30-50% off clearance yarn! Please note this discount excludes needles, notions, patterns, books and gift items. Only Woolith Fair participants with an official yarn crawl passport will be offered the 20% yarn discount at the time of purchase, and will not be combined with guild or other clearance yarn discounts.
We have a limited quantity of Woolith Fair pins to offer to those who start the crawl at our shop on Friday. The Woolith Fair Passport is available for download right here. Copies of the passport will also be available from each Passport Stop, however, you must collect all your stamps on the same passport in order to be able to enter the raffles (ie: you cannot use different passports for each day of the crawl). When you have completed your adventure, leave your passport at the last store you visit so it can be entered into prize draws. The prize draws will take place in early May, and prize winners will be announced on the Woolith Fair website.
We’re very excited to have local knitwear designer Sylvia McFadden of Softsweater Knits here at the shop again on Saturday, April 29th to meet and inspire our visitors with a special trunk show of her beautiful shawls. Her latest design, the beautiful Salt shawl (photo above) is knitted with 3 skeins of our favourite Malabrigo Rios!
Besides being a super talented designer, Sylvia is also an accomplished photographer who is teaching her fabulous Smartphone Photography for Instagram class at 88 Stitches in June.
We look forward to seeing you this weekend and adding our 88 Stitches stamp to your Woolith Fair passport!
