This year's GLYC takes place on 1st - 8th September, 2019!

This year’s edition of the Great London Yarn Crawl will take a different tactic: the week-long event will allow participants to choose their own routes and shop combinations, and to spread their visits over multiple days, extending the yarn-y celebration! The fantastic shops involved in this year’s GLYC have come up with some special offers and events for September, which you can find detailed below. 

Participants must present their GLYC passports to take advantage of any shop offers!

tickets go on sale 10am BST MONDAY 1 july 2019
