New Jersey Wool Walk

We're excited to participate again this year in the NJ Wool Walk. How do you participate? Buy a Passport for $6 to enjoy the discounts offered by each store exclusively for passport holders ($1.00 from each purchase will be donated to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey). Visit as many as you like of the 13 stores participating this year. See njwoolwalk.com for details on which stores are participating and start planning your route!

 

We'll have many giveaways, too! We'll have a signature Katrinkles stitch marker free with a $25 purchase, or $2.50 without purchase. Commemorative 2021 Wool Walk Katrinkles stitch markers will be available to purchase for $2.50, while supplies last. We're offering a great stitch marker tin to hold all the markers you collect throughout the walk free with a purchase of $50 or more. And we're bringing back our ever popular prize gumballs!! You can choose one or more yarn "gumballs" depending on the amount you spend ($50 and up), unwind it, and see what kind of prize you get to pick.

 

Turn in your passport at the last store you visit to be eligible for drawings for some great prizes.
