We are getting so excited about this year’s Rose City Yarn Crawl! The Mystery Alongs, the swag, the pop-up shops – but most of all, seeing all of you and celebrating all things fiber-related!

Although we long for the days when it was a full-on four-day fiber fiesta, the reality is that Crawling in the Time of Coronavirus requires some precautions. In order to hold this event in as safe a manner as possible, we will be implementing the following:

  • Crawlers who wish to participate in person must show proof of full Covid-19 vaccination, along with photo ID. Once you’ve provided this information at the first shop you visit, you’ll receive a wristband that you can show for entry to other shops.

  • Shops will limit the number of Crawlers who can be inside at one time. This number will be different for each shop, as shops are different sizes. At Northwest Wools, we will allow 6 people inside at one time.

  • Just like everywhere else you go these days, you’ll need to wear a mask over your mouth and nose the whole time you’re in the shop.

For more information about the Yarn Crawl’s Covid-19 policy, please refer to the RCYC website.

Virtual Crawl

This year we’ve added a virtual element for those who are unable to participate in person. Each participating shop will have a special Crawl code word on their website. Collect all of the code words and enter them on the RCYC website to be entered to win a fantastic, special edition Heidi West bucket bag. 

Northwest Wools will also be offering a sample of our Pop-up Shops in our online Kit Store during the event, so even if you can’t make it in person, you can still shop for some extra-special goodies!
