Welcome Tourists!

The Great Tennessee Yarn Tour is a special adventure designed with fiber-enthusiasts in mind. Over the course of 4 weeks, Yarn Tourists will embark on a one-of-a-kind road trip through Tennessee! Along the way, you'll explore local yarn shops, discover new yarns, fiber, and products, make new fiber friends, and maybe even meet an alpaca!


What's a Yarn Tour?

The Great Tennessee Yarn Tour is a month-long celebration of yarn and fiber, our creative community, and all of the amazing things a local yarn shop has to offer. Over the course of August, Tourists are encouraged to visit participating Yarn Tour shops in person and discover what each shop has to offer, from luxurious yarns and notions to art supplies, handmade gifts, and much more! Grab your yarn friends and plan a road trip through Tennessee's finest local yarn shops. Along the way, you'll see beautiful scenery, meet interesting people, make lasting memories, and of course - end up with miles of yarn!

2024 Yarn Tour Overview


August 3 - 31, 2024 // Tickets on sale: March 1 - June 15, 2024


Local Yarn Shops across Middle and East Tennessee


The Great Tennessee Yarn Tour is open to everyone! Whether you are completely new to the world of yarn or an experienced Fiber Artist, you will find something along the Tour to ignite your senses and inspire your creative journey.

How to Tour:

Many great journeys start with a single ticket. Buy your ticket here (available through June 15.) Purchasing a ticket makes you an Official Tourist! Once the Tour starts in August, join your fellow Tourists on a road trip around Tennessee.

Please keep in mind that this is a Tour, not a race. You have four full weeks to visit as many, or as few, of the participating shops as you like, and in whatever order you like! 


Tickets cost $20 each.

What's included:

Each ticket comes with a Travel Pack. A Travel Pack includes a commemorative tote bag, guide book with printed Tour information, Pattern Booklet, and SWAG!

Tourists will be able to pick up their Travel Packs once the Tour starts in August.

Tickets also endow special privileges on the Tourist during the Tour, such as access to Tourist-only specials and giveaways at participating shops and ability to purchase each store's exclusive mini-skein during the Tour. Lastly, Tourists who buy a ticket will be automatically entered into the Triple Grand Prize Giveaway at the end of the Tour!

Why you should

The Great Tennessee Yarn Tour is a very unique experience that builds a deeper connection between fiber enthusiasts and local yarn and fiber-related businesses. Each participating shop offers a completely unique experience to visitors -- from alpaca farms to contemporary designers to old-fashioned charm. If you like to have fun, make new friends, talk to interesting people, and see all sorts of yarns and fibers, then this event is for you!
