Really enjoyed Susan's Knitting Crawl. Met other avid knitters & found some great Knitting Shops. Susan was very knowledgeable & I would definitely recommend this tour.

You’ll need to bring your own Metrocard, as you’ll be using the subway throughout the tour.

As you shop ’til you drop for the lush handpainted luxury yarns as well as the basics, you will visit:

  • a knitting shop in the heart of the financial district that won’t break the bank
  • a knitting cafe
  • a shop that is like an impressionist painting
  • a fabulous bead shop
  • the quintessential NYC trimming shop
  • a homey craft shop
  • a zenlike studio
  • shops that are off the beaten path

Discounts are offered at several of the shops you visit! A map of the locations is provided to all participants. A snack is included. Recommended for visitors who want to experience New York from a different perspective.
