The sixth annual I LOVE YARN DAY will take place Saturday, October 15th and to celebrate the yarn industry will come together for another year of “stitching it forward” and spreading the love of yarn world-wide.
Fiber fans across the globe are encouraged to share their affection for yarn and stitch it forward by teaching at least one newbie to yarn-craft and experience its feel good benefits. Whether people prefer to knit it, crochet it, spin it, weave it or bomb it, the goal is for every yarn-crafter to share their know-how and love of yarn with someone new on October 15th. And then post it, tweet it, pin it and share it on social media with the hashtags #StitchItForward and #iloveyarnday to celebrate and motivate others to join in the fun!
“Most people remember that one person who taught them their first stitch or helped them complete their first project and how learning to knit or crochet made them feel,” said Craft Yarn Council Executive Director Jenny Bessonette. “We want to encourage people to reminisce about that and pass along the joys of learning to someone else.”
There are many ways one can stitch it forward for I LOVE YARN DAY 2016. For inspiration, including the official celebration countdown and ideas and tips for teaching others how to knit and crochet, free patterns, yarn party ideas, contests with fiber-fabulous prizes, and more, people are encouraged to visit I LOVE YARN DAY 2016’s website at www.iloveyarnday.com
