Knit, Crochet & Spin at The Detroit Zoo!

Grab your needles, hooks, or wheel and come to the Detroit Zoo!

Something tells us it's all happening at the zoo.... and we are so excited that it is!

This is Mittens for Detroit and The Yarn Stop's 5th World Wide Knit in Public event together. This event is a fundraiser for Mittens for Detroit. The proceeds will fund new, warm, durable gloves for school-age children in Detroit, Hamtramck, Dearborn, and Pontiac in the Fall.

This is a private, tented event, outdoors, rain or shine (no refunds). Join us to meet new friends, spend some wonderful time with old friends, visit with vendors offering special event items, and stroll around the zoo!
Your event ticket is a minimum donation of $25, which includes zoo admission. Please note: this is a special event, and your zoo membership cannot be used for admission. Parking is $8 per car (you CAN use your zoo membership card to cover your parking).

Only 100 tickets available – these will go FAST! Please note: We are not able to reserve specific seating at this event; arrive early to get a space for your group! TICKET SALES END JUNE 1st, and DAY OF WALK-INS ARE NOT ALLOWED. Please order soon!

Because of limited seating, this is an adults only (18+) event. Vendors will be there so plan on adding to your stash with some of the most beautiful yarn around Metro Detroit! You'll receive an event souvenir and one ticket for the door prize drawing.
