    I'm sitting at a table for 6 in the main part of the restaurant.

      Order of shops would work out!

      May 16, 2014

    • Erin

      I will post a new map in the thread in the morning. Just got in and am very sleepy!

    I can't make it Thursday... But can't wait till next event

    May 13, 2014

  • Samantha

    I can't make it Thursday. My pregnant daughter is having some testing done. But I am coming Sunday

    May 12, 2014

  • Erin

    Hey all. Planning has moved to the Discussions forum. Also, I picked up enough passports today for everyone and then some. The guy at Bad Woman Yarn was kind of surprised I had an organized "yarn mob." Getting excited!

    I forgot to mention that my favorite LYS that I never go to because it's out of my range is Makers' Mercantile. Not sure how we'd fit it in at this point, though!

    May 1, 2014

    • Samantha

      I highly recommend Makers. It's in the same complex as my husband works out of. Their coffee shop is open, lots of good goodies. They are gluten free

      May 8, 2014

    • April A.

      Sam, I'd love to go to Makers, but not on the bus! If someone were driving on the Thursday yarn crawl then it would be easy to add Makers to our itinerary.

    Who's in for Thursday? I created a generic loop map of the easy-to-get-to shops inside Seattle: https://goo.gl/maps/MMXMh

    We could almost do all this by bus. I picked Flying Apron in Fremont as a starting place, but there's not exactly much parking in Fremont, so we might have to work out some other location that's easier for pickups.

      Yeah there's several threads running. I'm confused, too.

      Moving discussion here for Thursday: http://www.meetup.com...­]

    Updated the map: by popular demand, we're including one of the island yarn shops. https://goo.gl/maps/H0F8g

    This will occur on Sunday, and we probably should meet around 9:30 am if we're going to see all the shops :). I'm still driving. We can meet at Brave Horse, or anywhere else y'all want. As it gets closer, we can work out a Thursday plan to visit just a couple of shops in the city limits. As long as we hit at least 8 shops (which we will on Sunday) we can enter the drawing. I'll pick up as many "passes" as I can later this week while I'm out and about.

      I like the route, by the way. I'm looking forward to going to some of the out of town shops I've never been to before.

      May 2, 2014

    • Erin

      Portage bay is fine by me!

      May 3, 2014

  • Erin

    I was thinking about doing it on Friday afternoon, or even Thursday. The crowds will be smaller. I'll offer my car (can seat 4+driver). I'm going to announce this to the group and see if we get a few more bites.

    April 27, 2014

    • Lauri

      That's a great point, April. It'll take about an hour to get back to Seattle from Tukwila-ish if we leave after 4 pm.

      April 28, 2014

    • Lauri

      I did the South crawl on Thursday, and there were people but it wasn't crowded at all. I'd highly recommend Thursday and will happily join whoever wants to go on that day!

      May 3, 2014

  • Erin

    Ok: Thursday folks. Do you want to tackle the shops inside the city limits? I can start earlier than 1 pm, maybe 10 am if that works? Sunday folks, how about this for a plan of action:

    Or, I'd be happy to do this route on Thursday if y'all think traffic wouldn't be too bad. This gets us 8 shops in towns I, at least, have never visited, and a pretty direct route home at the end of the day.

    Samantha: I'm happy to drive if you like. I have dashboard GPS and I'll have a map/directions as well. Organization, yay!

    April 30, 2014

    • Samantha

      I have a good to go pass, so it's cheaper to use it. I'm available for both Thursday and Sunday.

      I really want to go on a Thursday bus tour. We can do all five city limits shops in eat I consider a reasonable amount of time. YMMV

      May 2, 2014

  • Samantha

    Yes, my car just got repaired from the accident Peter had in Portland. Do you remember the name of the restaurant we meet up at for breakfast last year?

    April 1, 2014

    • Samantha

      Ok so Portage bay or Brave Horse?

      April 29, 2014

    • April A.

      I vote for ... either one.

      April 30, 2014

  • Samantha

    Erin, if you want to get a group to go on Thursday/Friday, we could go to some of the further out shops that we normally wouldn't get to. I would be up for that. Either of us could drive.

    April 29, 2014

    • Samantha

      Plus I still have my work GPS, so we can navigate around easier. Do you have a good to go pass? If not I do.

      April 29, 2014

  • Samantha

    Christina wants to go too, but Sunday is the only day she can make it. The last two years we have gone to breakfast, and then gone. So as I'm the person to set this up, I would love to set up as we have done in the past.

    April 29, 2014

  • Lauri

    I work on Fridays, but I could do Thursday or Sunday that weekend.

    April 27, 2014

  • April A.

    I'll be in Italy May 4 - 12 so might not be much help with planning. I'd prefer Fri or Sat for the tour, but will go along with the rest of you as long as I can ride with Sam!

    1 · April 25, 2014

  • April A.

    I want to go! Sam, are you driving?
