I Love Yarn Day
Mikey of The Crochet Crowd is looking for ideas to celebrate this year’s I Love Yarn Day.
I Love Yarn Day is officially on Saturday, October 17, 2015.
Behind the Scenes
I Love Yarn Day is organized by the Craft Yarn Council. Behind the scenes of the yarn industry sits the Craft Yarn Council. Decision makers of major yarn manufacturers, publishers and implement makers sit on the council. The council establishes standards across the yarn industry so things like yarn ball bands have similar information presented by many brands instead of each brand having their own technical lingo and we, the users of the product, don’t have to learn all new abbreviations or understand how to read instructions for each company.
While the major companies compete for our business, they come together in this council for the benefit of anyone who uses yarn. While the major companies have the power to do their own thing, they encourage everyone to speak the same language such as abbreviations, symbols and more to provide standards to make it much easier for all of us.
For This Year
One of the council members has reached out to me to get involved with I Love Yarn Day for this year on the social sense. For this year, I Love Yarn Day falls directly on the final day of Creativ Festival, which The Crochet Crowd is attending.
We have an incredibly artistic approach for this show which include our nutcrackers, crochet igloo, crochet Christmas tree tower and amigurumi elves staged all over the place. It will leave guests in awe! You can always glimpse the workmanship involved with the nutcrackers.
We Are Tapped Out On Ideas and Need Your Thoughts!
When answering with your ideas, please leave your ideas in this blog. You can share them to Facebook but we need to keep these ideas on file and prefer you leave your answers on the blog comments below so I can review your ideas for consideration and keep them handy.
What would you do at the show to celebrate I Love Yarn Day?
- Flash Crochet & Knit Mob?
- Special Presentation on Main Stage?
What do you think we can do?
PS… Doing giveaways for all guests is not financially doable for us. Nearly 30,000 guests attend this show.
