I Love Yarn Day: October 17, 2015
Yarn Lovers Share Their Passion, Fashion and FUN!
Carrollton, TX – There will be hundreds of thousands of fiber lovers plying their needles, hooks and spindles this October in celebration of I Love Yarn Day, the third Saturday in October. What started as a lark five 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.
It’s a day that is all about spreading that good feeling people have about yarn and yarn-related crafts and the celebration continues through the weekend. Knit it, crochet it, spin it, weave it, wear it, post it, tweet it, carry it, share it, give it, or bomb it! And share they did, from the schoolteacher who taught her students how to crochet, to a lunchtime gathering where co-workers shared their crafts, to the woman who completed a chemo cap to donate to a local hospital.
Providing inspiration is the www.ILoveYarn.org web site, where industry designers share their love of yarn and offer fun, free projects to help celebrate October 17th, 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.
