Over the past several months, we’ve offered a few reminders about the I-91 Shop Hop, hoping that it will make it on to your calendar. This week we have an exciting announcement that may inspire you to solidify your plans for that weekend!
We’re delighted to announce that Christina of Maine based Madder Root will be bringing her iconic designs for sale at a one-day Pop-up Trunk Show during the I-91 Shop Hop weekend. We hope that you’ll coordinate your I-91 Shop Hop travel plans to time your visit to the Spinnery while she is here, on Saturday June 29th 10 am – 6 pm.
She and her husband Andy are working on some special offerings that will be available on a first come first served basis. She will be bringing her unique trundle project bags, tote bags, sketch books, T-shirts and more, all printed with her stylized designs featuring all things yarny!
The I-91 Shop Hop is a yarn crawl organized by 11 yarn stores located in the I-91 corridor that runs from New Haven, CT to Putney, VT. This year’s theme is COLOR! And Maureen is working up a special pattern that we’ll have kitted up and ready for sale as the fun starts on Thursday morning.
During the Shop Hop, when visiting the participating shops over the 4-day Shop Hop weekend (June 27th – 30th, 2019) you’ll have the chance to get your passport stamped. Every time you get your passport stamped you will be entered to win the Daily Door Prize at that shop. A total of 48 door prizes will be given out to participants! By visiting all 11 shops you will be entered into a drawing for the fabulous $550 Grand Prize, which includes gift certificates for the eleven shops, as well as yarns, needles and other goodies.
Here’s your chance to explore new yarn shops and win some great prizes. You can complete the Shop Hop all in one day, or make it a weekend event.
Feel free to purchase your $5 passport ahead of time. You can find them available for sale on our website, here.
We hope that you’ll be able to visit us during this special weekend. We’re looking forward to your visit!
