San Diego Yarn Crawl

Join us September 8-11, 2022!


Come join us on a fun and exciting yarn crawl in San Diego, California. Join us for friendly yarn talks, workshops, and exciting new yarns!

What is a Yarn Crawl?

A Yarn Crawl is a community-organized event focused on exploring the yarn shops of an area over a specific period. A group of stores, yarn dyers, and farmers come together to provide a week of fun for fiber enthusiasts.

The San Diego Yarn Crawl is an annual event featuring a free, self-paced, self-guided tour of participating San Diego county yarn stores and alpaca farms. The SDYC will take crawlers from Ramona to Chula Vista and many points in-between! The adventure runs Thursday through Sunday.

What is San Diego Yarn Crawl?

San Diego Yarn Crawl is a community-organized fiber enthusiast event where you get to spend the weekend with us on a self-guided, self-paced tour of San Diego-based local yarn stores, and two alpaca farms!  What we can guarantee is that you will have access to a wide variety of yarns, needles, knitting and crochet tools, and best of all, get up and personal with cute alpacas!

Each of the local yarn shops and farms has a different personality, so you will want to visit all nine participating locations.
