Amazing Threads - Shop Hop Begins!
|APRIL 7-10, 2022
We can hardly believe it has been two years since the last Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop, but it feels so good to be back!
Whether you are new to the Shop Hop or an experienced Hopper, we wanted to highlight all the fun events and opportunities you will have during the Hop here at Amazing Threads and at other participating shops.
Every year the Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop picks an overall theme for the Shop Hop. This year's theme is Minnesota State Parks! Each store has a unique MN State Park which has inspired a new pattern design and yarn colorway representative of their shop's park.
Amazing Threads' State Park is the Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in Preston, MN. Mystery Cave was discovered in 1937 and is over 13 miles in length making it the longest cave in MN. Stalactites, stalagmites, fossils, mineral deposits, and lakes are just a few of the incredible cave features found inside!
We can't reveal our sample pattern or yarn until the Shop Hop begins. Be sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for its debut!
Each participating store is collecting monetary donations for their local food shelf. By making your $50 donation in cash or check at the store, you will receive your official Shop Hop Passport and EZ Pass sticker! Donating $50 up front saves you $10 off the recommended donation of $5 for each store.
Show your EZ sticker at each shop you visit during the Hop to receive that shop's giveaway item while supplies last!
Amazing Threads is collecting monetary donations for CROSS Services.
So far you have helped us raise over $2500 for CROSS! Thank you for your generosity!
Make Your Plan
This year there are 12 yarn shops in the Twin Cities and surrounding area participating in the Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop! See participating shops here.
Check out the MN Yarn Shop webpage for your trip planning checklist here.
Each store will have their own daily door prizes for you to enter to win! Prepare in advance by printing and filling out the drawing slips for you to drop them and go!
When you are done hopping, turn in your Passport at the last store you stop at for the opportunity to win overall prizes from the MN Shop Hop! Those that get their passport stamped at all 12 stores will be entered into the GRAND PRIZE drawings! Other passports will be entered into the second chance prize drawing!
We have a special surprise for the first 50 people who finish their Hop and turn in their Passport cards at Amazing Threads! Plan your route accordingly! :)
Not only will we have our shop hop exclusive pattern and yarns, but we have other fun surprises in store!
We have new samples throughout the store making their debut!
