If you haven't yet registered there is still time. Registering is a great way to get information about this awesome event. Our coordinators, Katie and Barb, have worked hard to pull together an exciting event this year.
There are nine shops participating this year; Knit Purl, Happy Knits, Close Knit, Pearl Fiber Arts, Yarnia, Yarntastic, Dublin Bay, Twisted, and Yarn Garden. Each shop has something different and amazing to offer. Check them out online to decide which (if not all) of the shops you wish to visit this year. Portland has an incredible public transportation service to help you get to each of the shops, plan your route ahead of time using their website: trimet.org. You can also choose to stay in the Pearl District where there are three rockin' shops within walking distance from Portland Union Station and many more intriguing places to visit like Powell's City of Books, VooDoo Donuts, and the Museum of Contemporary Craft, to name a few.
This year Barb and Katie will be tweeting their adventures, as well as event updates, such as train delays and other important information. Follow them @YarnTrain. You can also share your photos of the event in our Facebook Album, or email them to the Webmaster, who will then share them online.
If you forgot to register or lost the link to the Yarn Train brochure (full of discounts and information), you can still access it and download it from our website, Yarn Train Brochure.
Safe and wonderful travels to all those participating.
