  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) March 17, 2020 - The 9th Annual L.A. County Yarn Crawl that was slated for March 26-29, 2020 encompassing 18 individual entrepreneurial businesses participating across 143 miles within 6 Los Angeles Communities has been postponed until further notice. The individual brick-n-mortar shops in the crawl include: Downtown Los Angeles (Gather DTLA), Los Feliz (The Little Knittery), Long Beach (Alamitos Bay Yarn Company), Bellflower (Stitches in Time), Redondo Beach (L’atelier), Inglewood (Knitting Tree L.A.), Santa Monica (Wildfiber Studio), Brentwood (Jennifer Knits), Tarzana (Zoe’s Knit Studio), Encino (L’atelier on Ventura), Studio City (La Knitterie Parisienne), Valley Village (The Altered Stitch), Pasadena (Wollhaus), San Marino (A Stitch in Time Needlework), La Verne (Make One Yarn Company) and Claremont (Phebie’s NeedleArt; Bourgee Boutique & Yarnaholic Store), along with L.A’s mobile Yarnover Truck.

    All of these brick-n-mortar businesses, who have been community pillars for their respective knitting and crocheting communities, are taking business responsibility making adjustments and taking precautions to help keep staff and customers as safe as possible, at their retail locations. At this time, L.A. County Yarn Crawl is postponed. We will re-evaluate again in several weeks about how best to proceed with our event.

    “On behalf of the L.A. County Yarn Crawl, we feel the most responsible thing to do is postpone our event at the present time. We care about our communities and our customers and want to put forth what is important at this highly sensitive time. While we had planned to do a ‘virtual crawl’ – at this time, our bandwidth is limited due to the nature of our event happening in a matter of days and our news changing hourly in our communities, to effectively make this an event as we had hoped. We do encourage our Crawlers to stay connected to us via our newsletter (https://layarncrawl.org) all of our social media networks, and our APP https://layarncrawl.org/pages/crawl-app for the most up-to-date information as we navigate this uncharted territory. Many of our individual stores will be making their own adjustments to their business hours and online presence as well and we thank our loyal customers for sticking by us,” states Maridee Dangcil, President of the L.A. County Yarn Crawl and owner of the Yarnover Truck.

    While The L.A. County Yarn Crawl’s event mission remains to commit to educating and teaching yarn crafts in the future, presently they are are standing by their communities with health and safety at the forefront of their operations.
