You have heard of a pub crawl, right?
Well, a Yarn Ramble is just like this only better, we add a wonderful destination, good food, a drink or two and copious opportunities to visit yarn shops, mills, factories, attend talks, workshops and stay in lovely hotels.
So as one BIG community we will work together over a week long of fun, workshops, discounts, activities, prizes, entertainment, gatherings and enjoyment, you are not only encouraged to visit the stopovers but to take advantage of the wonderful destination that will host you.
Yarn crawls are happening everywhere around the world – but not here! In the USA crawls are fetching upwards of 1000 people. And they have between 5- 50 shops on the crawl. We want this to happen in Australia. Our mission is to find everyone associated with yarn (retailers, market stands, farmers and teachers) and to let them shine in a see of yarntourists!
You can join in for one day, three days or every day. The object is to do this at your leisure, so grab a group of like-minded friends and join us as we showcase the greater fibre community.
Just home after a protracted tour of Victoria. Managed to do 23 out of 25 shops on list. Thanks so much for a fabulous time and the opportunity to meet shop owner partaking in Ramble - a lot of fun. Cheers Barbara
Hi to Both Thank you for a lovely time with lots of great highlights. I’m letting the memories flow in & enjoying reliving bits of the trip. My favourite coffee stop in Melbourne was ‘GONTRAN CHERRIER’ - no wonder I couldn’t remember the name. I’m giving them 11 out of 10 for both the coffee & the amazing croissant. Thank you again for lots of lovely experiences, Happy Knitting, Gillian
Hi Chris and Gaille , I was on the Yarn Ramble on Friday . We are the 3 from Qld. I had a fantastic day with everything being well organised by you and Gaille. There was so much 'wool candy' and accessories to touch ,look at, and buy . My friends are envious of my travels and purchases . I have provided them with positive feedback about the Yarn Ramble . I'm looking forward to more trips . Cheers, Lynn
