Announcing the First Annual I91 Shop Hop

Save the Date!

Friday, June 24th - Sunday, June 6th, 2011

Twelve local yarn shops located along I91 from New Haven, CT to Putney, VT want to have some fun and get to know you better!

Stop in your participating LYS and purchase your Shop Hop Passport for $5. Along with your passport you'll receive a tote bag with the map and details about each of the twelve shops.

Get you Shop Hop Passport stamped by visiting the participating shops over the 3-day Shop Hop Weekend. Every time you get your passport stamped you will be entered to win daily door prizes at that shop. A total of 36 door prizes will be given out to participants.

By visiting all twelve shops you will be entered in the Grand Prize drawing; that prize is valued at over $1200.

Here's your chance to explore new yarn shops and win some great prizes.
You can complete the Shop Hop all in one day or spread it out over the three days. Consider making a weekend of it with friends and stay at a lovely B&B while you explore the shops.
