The best knitting subscription box -
it’s not just exclusive hand dyed yarn, it’s an adventure.
Cadence, Sarah and Janet, owners of three different yarn stores and best friends in the biz started this adventure because we were looking for a way to stay connected with each other and our knitting communities. We figured you were craving this connection too. Shazam 🎉: Good Vibes Yarn Tour – your opportunity to connect with others while exploring new techniques and traveling behind the scenes with designers and dyers.
What is a Yarn Tour?
It’s a three-month knitting event with three virtual shows, swag at every stop, and a community of groupies that will inspire you and make you laugh at every turn.
For example, As part of the Fall 2022 tour, we traveled to Baltimore, Maryland. We went behind the scenes with Terri Haynes the creator of AT Haynes House Yarns, snacked on Dolle's Salt Water Taffy a Baltimore staple, and made a lace shawl inspired by the boardwalk while using a Good Vibes Needle Gauge and Center Pull Yarn Ball Winder. Between stops, we traded tips, shopped for souvenirs with our 20% discount, and made new friends in our Facebook group.
Get on the Bus!
If virtual travel with snacks, new projects, and your best knitting buddies sounds fun to you, get on the bus with us!
"It is well worth the price of the ticket! This is an opportunity to meet people from all over, learn new things about fiber arts. The shop owners were welcoming and fun as were the participants. You will enjoy the tour!" Mary Ann
Hundreds of knitters (and a few crocheters) have joined us! We’ve had a blast putting together the boxes with all the goodies, and the shows with behind-the-scenes interviews, techniques and a taste of virtual travel.
"Got my box today!!! It was a really tough day at work, and I can't tell you how much I squealed with glee when I saw the contents. This colorway is BEAUTIFUL" Judi
Anyone who has taken a tour or attended a concert knows that it is the people around you that make or break the experience. We are delighted to say that an inspiring, funny, generous community has formed with each tour.
“Love the wonderful things in the surprise boxes! But my favorite has been the zoom meetings – the videos and meeting the designers and getting to meet all the people on the trips.” Ginnie
