There will be hundreds of thousands of fiber lovers plying their needles and hooks this October in celebration of I Love Yarn Day, the second Friday in October. What started as a lark four years ago by a group of yarn enthusiasts inviting people to share their fiber passion has turned into a viral event that last year trended on Twitter. We are busy planning an event near our offices in Ballantyne….south Charlotte in North Carolina.

If you live nearby, please join the Red Heart team at the StoneCrest Shopping Center in the courtyard near Smashburger. We’ll be taking an extra-long lunch from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, enjoying meeting other yarn enthusiasts and handing out a gift to the first 200 visitors who show up with their hooks or needles. It’s a day that is all about spreading that good feeling people have about yarn and yarn-related crafts. Knit it, crochet it, wear it, post it, tweet it, carry it, share it, give it, or bomb it!

If you don’t live near us, check out the www.ILoveYarn.org web site, where industry designers share their love of yarn and offer fun, free projects to help celebrate October 10th, plus there are yarn party ideas. Yarn crafters are encouraged to plan fun events locally like yarn bombing evenings or yarn parties and to pin their recipe, decorations and planned projects on the I Love Yarn Day Pinterest board. Enthusiasts are also invited to post their plans at: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/i-love-yarn-day-plans and post and tweet them on the I Love Yarn Day Facebook and Twitter pages.

      Hi Donna, Check your local craft stores and knitting/crochet groups to see if they are doing anything! The day is a national celebration of yarn. Our office is in Charlotte, which is why we’re hosting our fiber flash mob there. But groups around the country are encouraged to have them, so there may be one near you!

    Most of the time when something like this goes to Washington State, they end up in Seattle & I live in eastern Washington in a town called Yakima.
