It's Slow Crawl Time!
PNW Slow Yarn Crawl May 24th - September 2nd
The Pacific Northwest Slow Yarn Crawl is happening now! With the Slow Yarn Crawl, you have the whole summer to explore the region and visit shops - there are 36 shops participating in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Going out of town for a few days? Check and see if there are any shops on the Slow Crawl. Or look at the list, and plan some day trips!
Purchase a souvenier passport ($10) - we have them in the shop. Put your name and info in the front, and then start making the rounds. When you present your passport, you'll get a stamp at participating shops, as well as the shop's free pattern. The Seattle Yarn Slow Crawl Pattern is the Alki Anklet, pictured above, by our own Destiny Itano.
Passport holders also get an entry into the Shop Prize drawing. At Seattle Yarn, you can earn extra entries by correctly answering our weekly trivia question! There will be a new question every Friday - trivia might be about yarn, fiber, snails...who knows - come in and test your knowledge!
If you complete a region, you'll be entered into the Regional Prize drawing, and if you complete the whole passport, you'll be entered into the Grand Prize drawing!
For more information, check out the PNW Slow Yarn Crawl website.
We are now an Ashford Dealer! We can easily order any Ashford products, including wheels, looms, fiber, and more. Feel free to come in and have a look at our floor model wheel and loom.
We have loved having the Sunday Spinners group so much that we're making it available EVERY SUNDAY! Bring your wheels and spindles, Sundays 10:30-12:30!
Come join our Ravelry group, Seattle Yarn Lovers, for updates, pictures, and conversation.

Jorstad Creek Trunk Show
Sunday, June 23rd
Jorstad Creek is a local dyer from Olympia, Washington, who produce beautiful and vibrant colors on a variety of lovely yarns and spinning fibers. Seattle Yarn is thrilled to host them for a trunk show on Sunday, June 23rd.
Jorstad will be bringing an assortment of hand-dyed yarns, as well as braids in several fiber types. They will also be bringing some Turkish spindles by Alison Gearly, who studied spindle-making with Jenkins, and hand made top-whorl spindles and nostepinnes from a local artisan.
There are new things arriving in the shop all the time - it's hard to keep up! Check out our recent arrivals list below - we're doing our best to keep the growing list updated. Every time you come in, there's a good chance there will be something new!
Is there something you know you want, but you can't quite get here? Give us a call - we are happy to ship to you.
