Participants will receive a free pattern in every shop they visit.
Participants will be included in the gift basket draws at the close of the yarn crawl.
( visit at least 4 stores to be entered in draws but there are more prize chances for those doing 5-9 shops and those who complete all 14 shops : potentially there will be 14 chances to win )
A prize will go to one of the completed Mystery Knit along participants.
Participants can also enter as a team category for prizes or they can visit the shops on their own.
There will be a prize for the “Best Design Project Bag” because one part of the passport is that the participant can design and create their own Yarn Crawl Bag; a bag is not part of their purchased passport, rather it is an activity in the yarn crawl.

We will have a table at the Picton Fibre Fest, Sat.May 25/19 which will highlight photos and prizes.
