Have yarn, will travel…
Tote bag – check! Passport – check! Keys, wallet and sunglasses – check! A summer thirst for yarn adventures – check!
We have the yarn, and we hope you’re ready to hit the road in vacationland this summer for the first ever Maine Yarn Cruise!
Kicking off Memorial Day Weekend we’ve teamed up with a bunch of great Maine yarn and craft stores to bring you a summer filled with yarn at every turn… Each month features new prizes and plenty of good reasons to get out and explore the great state of Maine!
The yarn crawl/cruise begins Friday May 26th and lasts until Labor Day, Monday September 4th. Tote bags/passports, and the first round of passport-holder sale items go on display this Friday, May 26th.
The June Prize at Halcyon Yarn is a goody bag featuring our Cupid’s Victim lace fingerless mitts pattern, and a skein of Malabrigo Silky Merino to make them from – perfect for cool summer nights! Plus a bottle of soak for washing your delightful delicates and a $10 Gift Card – all packed in a cute muslin project bag for hitting the road with your knitting…
Here’s how it works:
Pick up your “passport” and tote bag here at the store for $9.50 – this will be your “ticket” to the specials and prizes at all 18 participating stores. When you get your tote and passport at Halcyon Yarn it will be loaded with free patterns and goodies!
Each time you visit a participating store and make a purchase you’ll get your passport stamped and your name will be entered into that month’s prize drawing. Plus, you’ll be entered into the Grand Prize drawing in September. Each store features it’s own prizes, and the more you shop, the more chances you have to win!
We’ll have a special “yarn cruise” display in the shop which will change frequently throughout the summer. Those select items will be offered at a special discount to passport holders so each time you visit there will be some new delight you can save on. Just a few visits to the special yarn cruise table and the passport pays for itself! Sign up for our “regional” email newsletter here, to stay up to date on fun summer happenings in the store and on the cruise.
It’s that simple. This is a great way to explore the many wonderful shops around Maine and to get great discounts and prizes all summer long. To see all the participating shops and check out special events see the Maine Yarn Crawl website. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
Halcyon Yarn is located at 12 School St. in downtown Bath, Maine – and there’s plenty of parking. We’re right off of coastal Route One, approximately 40 minutes from Portland, and one hour from Camden/Rockland. Open Monday – Friday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Starting June 18th we’ll be open Sundays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Directions here!
Please note, this is an in-store event only! We look forward to saying hello in person as you get out and about this summer. Passport stamps, entry into the prize drawings, plus great weekly surprise specials for passport holders will be happening in the store all summer. Stop by often to see what’s new and delightful on the Maine Yarn Cruise!
