This year the tour celebrated Year 12! This year’s tour featured 26 shops from seven Western Washington counties. The tour was five days from Wednesday-Sunday, May 17th-21st 2017 and each shop had extended hours to serve our fiber-loving friends. This year’s theme was Stitch Two Together.
Each shop had a free collector’s shop pin, gave away free knit and crochet patterns, and discounted yarns for those patterns. The tour hosted a daily drawing at each shop and gave away $1500 in grand prize gift certificates. We had more sponsor support than ever and attendees coming from all over the nation and the world.
