The Seventh Annual Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop is
April 11--14, 2013. This is the biggest
Shop Hop yet with sixteen of the Twin Cities’ best yarn shops participating.
To begin the hop, pick up driving directions
and an entry card at any one of the shops listed. At each shop, get your entry form stamped and
pick up a free pattern for a unique Shop Hop 2013 project. A completed entry form, stamped at each and
every shop, qualifies you to enter the drawing for the Grand Prize valued at
over $2000 of knitting/crocheting supplies or one of sixteen First Prizes full
of fiber goodies. At the same time, you
can also enter your name for exciting door prize drawings at each shop. The first day of the Shop Hop is Thursday,
April 11. You can (try to) complete the
Shop Hop all in one day or spread it out over four days.

enhance your hopping experience, each shop has commissioned a limited edition
yarn specifically for this spectacular event.
Each shop will have its own yarn featured in its pattern given to shop
