Great Rhody Yarn Crawl to Benefit RI Food Bank
Saturday, March 12, 2011
The Great Rhody Yarn Crawl is a wonderful stitching together of knitters with their favorite yarn shops across Rhode Island in a three-day extravaganza that takes the pub crawl and gives it fiber. The goal: to visit as many participating stores as possible over the weekend of April 15-17. And support RI Food Bank along the way by donating non-perishable food at each stop.
