Whew! This was the Biggest, AND the Best Yarn Crawl yet! If you missed it because you were living under a rock, here is a fast recap!
I was once again honored to be one of the 24 Local Yarn Shops along the Rockies for this 3rd Annual Event Spectacular! Bags By CAB - Yarn Shoppe along with 23 of your local favorites, hosted this fabulous Yarn Crawl!
Participants registered at www.YarnAlongTheRockies.com for the September 13 - 21, 2014 Event. LYS from Colorado Springs, CO through Denver, Monument, Castle Rock, Golden and Boulder offered over the top gift baskets worth hundreds of dollars filled to the brim with yarn and notions generously donated by their vendors, for the Crawlers! Registered participants began by stopping in at their LYS and picking up a Free Passport, officially stamped by the LYS owner. Then their name is entered into the drawing for that LYS's Prize Basket.
Registered participants who braved the downtown traffic, parking meters (when they waited for one), and those who had great Karma and whipped right into a VIP Meter right outside my Shoppe's front door, came into my Shoppe and were very happy to have made it in! For me, that number was 500 in Crawlers! Wow!
I heard so many stories, met fabulous women, enjoyed all of the crocheters (I am a crocheter, and felter, hence the name Bags BY CAB) Crocheted and Felted Handbags. I also am a Boutique specializing in Genuine Vintage Handbags! (Somebody's got to cater to all of those fabulous paralegals (of which I am a 30 year litigation paralegal), legal assistants, legal secretaries, legal administrators and attorneys in downtown Denver! We love them, and they love our Handbags, Clothing and Accessories.
My most favorite Registered Participants wwere the ones who were too young to register. The Babies! Oh I LOVE those cute little babies and toddlers! Adorable!
I hope each and every one of you enjoyed your time in my Yarn Shoppe. I certainly enjoyed you ALL!
