SEP 28- OCT 6
Recently a friend and I participated in Shop Hop Atlanta, A Yarn Crawl of nine shops in the Atlanta Georgia Area. Over the next week or so I will be sharing with you some photos from the hop.
In addition to the fun of spending a whole day buying yarn, the shop hop was a great opportunity to get out there and see what variety the yarn stores in Atlanta had to offer. Since we lived a good 2 ½ hours away, we probably never would have felt the need to visit any of these lovely stores without the shop hop incentive. Now that we’ve seen all of the nice stuff they have in stock, we wont be able to resist going back.
As if that wasn’t enough, there is a competitive side to the shop hop too. Prizes! Each shop gave away a free knitting pattern, and spending $10 earned you a stamp on the Shop Hop Passport and an entry in a prize drawing – each shop has 3 prizes up for drawing. In addition, people who get all nine stamps will be entered to win the grand prize : $900 in gift certificates, $100 from each store!
Here’s what our trunk looked like after one shop, tune in next time to find out what happened!
