Woolith Fair 2017 Yarn Crawl

On Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th Once Upon a Sheep will participate in Woolith Fair, a yarn crawl event organized by the West Coast Knitter’s Guild for yarn lovers and fibre artists.

During this event, Once Upon a Sheep will offer:

  • 10% off all regular priced yarns, needles, and accessories; plus
  • an additional 10% discount for shoppers who hold a current Once Upon A Sheep Passionknitter Discount Card or a valid West Coast Knitters’ Guild Membership Card.

The West Coast Knitters’ Guild seeks to help various charitable organizations that can benefit from handmade items. They want to extend this goal into Woolith Fair, and invite Crawlers to help them help others.

For Woolith Fair 2017, they have chosen Variety – The Children’s Charity of British Columbia as the recipient. As one of their many activities, Variety – The Children’s Charity collects handmade blankets and distributes them to Ronald McDonald House, The Easter Seals House, and other similar organizations.

Woolith Fair is asking Crawlers to help them support this blanket drive by knitting or crocheting an 8″ square using a soft, acrylic based yarn. You can use any pattern or thickness of yarn, provided it is mostly acrylic (and therefore machine washable), and soft to the touch.

Your knitted or crocheted squares can be dropped off at Once Upon a Sheep anytime between now and April 29th.

After the crawl, they will be collecting the squares and then holding Seaming Sessions, where they will join the squares together into blankets.

Please note:

  • Our extended hours for Friday and Saturday and are 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Woolith Fair runs Friday through Sunday; however, we are CLOSED on Sunday, April 30th.
