Woolith Fair 2017 was a great success! We want to thank all the shops and studios – and the Alpaca Farm! – who served as Passport Stops for the weekend, as well as all the yarn yarn crawlers who took part in the Fair and came out to visit all the shops and studios. From what we have heard, everyone had a wonderful time and is now well stocked with yarn for the summer! 😉
In the week following Woolith Fair, we collected all the Passports and blanket squares that had been left at the various passport locations. In the coming weeks, the West Coast Knitters’ Guild will be organizing a group of volunteers to sew the blanket squares into blankets that can be donated to the Variety Blanket Drive.
The winners of the prize raffles were selected on the weekend. The winners are:
Beginner Crawler (at least 3 stamps on the passport): Anna Gurling
Intermediate Crawler (at least 7 stamps): Lori Nelson
Master Crawler (at least 14 stamps): Sue Dadson
All the winners have already been contacted and the prizes have been delivered. Congratulations everyone!
We will be announcing the dates for Woolith Fair 2018 very soon. Stay tuned so you can put the dates in your calendar, and start planning for next year’s yarn crawl!
Woolith Fair has finally arrived and I know that some of you have been out and about since early this morning, making sure that you take in as many Crawl Stops as possible!
Make sure to read through the blog posts below to verify the store hours and addresses of each location, so that you don’t miss out on anything. When you have finished your Woolith Fair adventure, leave your passport at the last store you visit. We will collect the passports later this week, and then draw the winners of our three Crawl Raffle prizes. Winners will be notified by email, and their names will also be posted here on the website.
We would like to thank all of the participating shops, farms, and yarn dyers who contributed prizes to this years event! A special thanks also to Diamond Yarns, for contributing prize items even though they can’t be here to take part in the Crawl in person. And in case you missed it on Instagram, here are a few photos of all those lovely prizes:
Happy Woolith Fair Everyone!
We have collected all the Passports, sorted them into the three raffle groups, and drawn the winning names. From 109 eligible passports, we had 70 entries into the Beginner Crawler Raffle, 30 entries in the Intermediate Crawler Raffle, and 9 in the Master Crawler Raffle.
After the winners were drawn from each category, we put all remaining passports back into the pot, and drew a winner for our extra special Bonus Prize, which includes a copy of Josée Paquin’s newest pattern, Venetian Dream!
And the Winners Are:
Beginner Crawler – Rachel Zuckermann
Intermediate Crawler – Suzanne Lawrie
Master Crawler – Keith Parent
Bonus Prize Winner – Lisa Pulsifer
Winners will be contacted today to arrange for delivery of their prize packages. Details of each prize will be posted after they have been handed out – we don’t want to ruin the surprise! (if you haven’t heard from us by Monday, May, 16th, please email us at woolithfair(at)gmail.com)
Thank you to everyone who came out to support, volunteer for, and participate in Woolith Fair 2016! We could not have done this without you!
