Ok, for those of you who don't live in the Boston area, let me explain. The Red Line is one line of our subway system; the Red Line runs from Cambridge, through Downtown and then onwards to Dorchester, and beyond to Ashmont or Braintree. There are three yarn shops along this route and we knitters have been traipsing this path for our Red Line Yarn Crawl for the past three years.
|Porter Square, Cambridge|
Head back to the Red Line and catch an inbound train to Downtown Crossing. It is a short walk to Windsor Button on Temple Place.

I need you to know that Windsor is not officially participating in this year's Crawl...
Maybe you haven't heard, but after 75 years in the business, they are nigh on two weeks from closing their doors permanently. So, please consider stopping in and taking a look at what is marked down, from 30-50%. Shop samples are now available for purchase. I assure you you will not walk out empty handed; there is still lots of beautiful yarns, notions, buttons, ribbons, books, and patterns for you to take back to a good home. Also, if you feel inclined, there is a memory book on the back counter, write a note about what the shop has meant to you.Be sure to say hello to Susan and Stan and their staff and let them know they will be missed.

Get your carry bag, a knitting friend and venture out on the Red Line Yarn Crawl. Saturday will find many of us at Stitch House, Mind's Eye, and even at Windsor. While it is important to note that Windsor isn't participating, I hope those of you that do the crawl will stop in and say thank you to Susan and Stan as their going out of business sale winds down. I expect that shop will close its doors a final time in the next two to three weeks if not sooner.

Mind's Eye Yarn 22 White Street, Porter Square, Cambridge. Yarn Crawl hours: 10AM-5PM
