Woolith Fair comes to Maple Ridge.

The crawl stop in Maple Ridge is the Once Upon A Sheep Yarn Shop.

Once Upon A Sheep Yarn Shop is the Maple Ridge stop for the Woolith Fair yarn crawl this weekend.

• Knitters, crocheters and fibre enthusiasts are invited to the first ever Woolith Fair yarn crawl this weekend.

The festival takes place May 6 to May 8 at 20 locations across the Lower Mainland.

Organized by the West Coast Knitters’ Guild, crawlers will visit local yarn stores, fibre art studios, yarn dyeing studios and an alpaca farm where there will be special sales, demonstrations and activities.

In Maple Ridge, the crawl stop will be at Once Upon A Sheep Yarn Shop at 22188 Lougheed Highway.

A Woolith Fair passport can be downloaded online, woolithfair.ca, and participants can collect stamps from each location to be eligible to be entered into a prize raffle.

Prize draws will be on May 14 and must be claimed by May 21. Organizers of the crawl are hoping that participants will contribute to the Knitted Knockers of Canada charity. Knitted Knockers are handmade breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomies or other breast procedures.

Volunteers along the crawl will be handing out patterns and information about the organization.

For more information about the event, including store and studio hours, or to download a passport go to www.woolithfair.ca or email woolithfair@gmail.com.
