Getting Started With Your Passport
I want to be part of the adventure! Where do I start?
Preorder your passport for $5.00 beginning June 1st
Go to our list of participating yarn shops to preorder your passport from the shop of your choice. The shop will be responsible for assigning you a passport number and contacting you once the real passports are available.
When picking up your passport, make sure you have both a passport and a shop log(1 page, back and front)
At the end of the adventure, make sure you hand in your log so you will be included in the prize drawings.
Your passport purchase enables you to win one of many prizes at the end of the tour. Winners will be notified by phone/email/text(your preferred form of communication) and prizes will be available for pick up at the shop where the winner's passport was purchased.
Review the map of participating stores and plan an itinerary for your July 28 through August 6th road trip
The passport is arranged alphabetically by state and then by shop name. Specific information related to each shop, such as address, phone #, website and shop hours can be found within the passport.
Make notes! The passport is yours to keep, so please feel free to make notes on the pages. After the tour, you may want to remember what you purchased from that shop, what you liked about the shop, pattern samples, and what types of yarn, books, supplies and notions they carry, etc.
Shop Logs get stamped at each shop you visit. The shop log is a 1-page, double-sided sheet with your passport number and name and contact number. Each shop will record your visit on the Heartland Yarn Adventure. by stamping the log under their shop name. You are responsible for asking the shop to stamp it at each location if you do not purchase at that shop. Once you have visited as many shops as you want , drop your log sheet at your last shop. That shop will make sure you are entered into further prize raffles once the shop hop is over. You are not required to make a purchase to receive the stamp.
On July 28th, hit the road for the fun!
Accommodations for people with disabilities.-We want to help make things as easy as possible. Please contact stores you intend to visit so that plans may be made to make your visit a great one.
