This I Love Yarn Day, Stitch It Forward and teach someone else to crochet or knit!
I Love Yarn Day is an annual event to celebrate yarn. In 2016, it will be held on Saturday, October 15th. In celebration of the 6th anniversary of the event, the Craft Yarn Council (CYC) is encouraging everyone to teach a friend, neighbor, or family member how to crochet, knit, weave, or otherwise have fun with yarn. Plus, there’s a scavenger hunt you can join to enter for a chance to win prizes!
Most people remember their first stitching lesson and who taught them how to turn skeins or balls of yarn into great scarves, hats, sweaters, afghans, and more. Pass along your love of stitching to someone you love! Use the hashtags #iloveyarnday and #stitchitforward to share what you’re doing, and follow our social media to join in!
Share your stories and join in the fun on social media with #stitchitforward and #ilyd2015. Plus, follow Red Heart (@redheartyarns on Instagram and Twitter) and I Love Yarn Day (@iloveyarnday_ on Instagram and @ILoveYarnDay on Twitter).
