What is a yarn and fiber crawl?
A Yarn and Fiber Crawl is an organized event focused on exploring fiber themed locations of a general area over a specific time period. For us, we're opening up our trail to more participants across the Bluegrass to open up their shops, their farms, their studios and invite people to see what makes the Kentucky Fiber Trail so amazing! The Bluegrass Fiber Crawl is open to KFT Members, and non-members. As with our past pop up markets, this is free to current members, if you are not interested in becoming a member, participation just includes a small fee. We are not exclusive to Kentuky residents, anyone close to the Bluegrass area may apply. We will promote, mail passports and make a directory of participating locations and their hours for crawlers to follow.
Locations do not have to set up all 9 days, we just ask that you set your own hours (we will post them as well) and stick to them. Participate as many days as you like! Each location is responsible for the COVID regulations, biosecurity restrictions and location rules they wish to keep on their premises.
Want to participate but don't have a physical location to set up? The Kentucky Natural Fiber Center has a few spots available that you can set up in for a small additional fee. Contact us here for more information on availability!
We will use our KFT passports for the event and upon completion, crawlers can send in photos of their passports for a chance to win prizes. We will send each participating location a stack of passports and printable passports will also be available on our website. We will also run hashtag promotions and contests during the 9 days of the Crawl so you can promote your own shops and hours through both your own social media and ours.
Kentucky Fiber Trail Members participate for free and non-members can participate for $65. Sign up today!
Application deadline for the Crawl is May 15 2022.
