This year's GLYC takes place on Saturday, 9th September, 2017!

We're excited to return to our original format for this year's Great London Yarn Crawl: a day-long tour of four yarn and haberdashery shops followed by an exclusive after-party - this year featuring a Mini Yarn Market - for even more yarn-y goodness!

The 2017 Great London Yarn Crawl features 12 routes Each group will have a maximum of 10 participants and 1-2 volunteer yarn guides to lead them on their crafty exploration of London! In a nod to GLYC's origins as a "yarn crawl on the tube" we've named each group for a different line of the London Underground!

Please note that the 2017 Routes are provisional and can be subject to changes.

UPDATE: We have done a provisional check of timings and travel estimates for the day and the shops listed below are the order in which you will visit them however we cannot account for circumstances beyond our control.

UPDATE #2: Please note that routes indicated with an * have at least one "complicated" transfer (i.e. transfer time approximately or greater than one hour AND/OR with two or more transfers). In most * cases there is a transfer between shops of either two changes OR one long transfer of 50 - 70 min.
