Free Red Heart Shopping Bags to the 1st – 300 Purchasers

Mikey, Crochet Crowd

Hooker Alley at Creativ Festival

We are weeks away from Creativ Festival. It is Canada’s largest consumer show for crafts. It’s a mega shopping experience, try before you buy experiences, seminars and inspiration coming out of the wahoo!

This will be our 8th show and like any show, consumers come to recognize us, trust us and are completely inspired by the creativity displayed within our exhibit. Every show we have done at Creativ Festival has assisted by crocheters, like you, from all over the world. We are a true community and it’s reflective within our exhibit.

We are Alice Hooks in Wonderland for this spring. I can tell you, the hats that have come in from all around the world that include Sweden, Denmark, India, Australia, UK, Mexico, USA and Canada will floor you! Each box opening here at home has been like Christmas each day! You will not be disappointed in the Top Hat Garden that you will see. Please take photos of the Exhibit at the show and share what you see with your friends.

We learned from the first show that we need to ensure we go to Creativ with inspiration that goes above expectations. In between the stress of planning, the fun emerges as our exhibit starts taking shape here at home.

We have been teamed with Red Heart since 2012 at Creativ Festival. We are unlike regular retailers as we tend to bring entire colour lines with us. We don’t bring excessive amounts as we intentionally sell out on the Creativ Festival Show Floor. We allow the guests to decide colours that they like instead of us just bringing in the popular colours only.

The best time to shop at our booth is to race to our booth at the 9 AM opening on the Friday. This opening time is just for advanced ticket holders. If you purchase your tickets online, you can get into the show 1 hour earlier before the general public. This will mean you have access to the entire exhibit of yarns before they start selling out.

We will have most of the new yarns released for 2014, as seen in the video preview below. We will also have favourites and hard to find Red Heart Yarns available as well.

To Sweeten The Deal

I recognize that consumers do pay to get into the show. At The Crochet Crowd Booth we help keep cash in you pocket so you can continue to shop all over the show floor.

  1. All prices are below Suggested Retail Price.
  2. Buy ANY 5 Things, the 6 ITEM is yours for free. The 6th item is equal to or below the lowest priced item you purchased.
  3. 1st – 300 Guests to make a purchase more than $10 will automatically get a Free Red Heart Canvas Shopping Bag. We had these bags last year and 200 bags were given out in the 1st 4 hours of the show. Once given out… they are gone for the duration of the show!

Shop ’til your ‘hearts’ content. We have no limits on purchases.


You need to rush to our booth to get to see the new yarns, purchase and take advantage of our deals. We accept Cash, Visa, Mastercard and Debit at our booth. We are serious about yarn sales and guests flood our booth knowing we have incredible savings waiting for them. No online orders or reserving products for pick up. First come, first serve.

New Location at Creativ Festival

For this spring’s show, we are in a new location on the show floor. You will find us in the main hall, Booth #153. We are now only half way back on the left hand side. When you walk into the main entrance. You can access us from the main centre aisle or on the farthest left aisle.

Parking is Free

Parking for the Spring Creativ Festival is free at the International Centre.

Come out for a day of fun. I have two seminars that are free to attend. Each seminar I am giving out a gift package to one lucky person that is drawn.

  2. Sherri says:

    Yep, need to have yarn shows in the US! What a fun time that could be for us and hopefully it would be close enough so I could go! Lol
    Might be nice to ne able to order from the show online….

  3. Lori DeLap says:

    I live in rural Washington state. The only yarn within 2 hours is at Wal-Mart. NOT a large or even very good selection. 😦 I wish I could go to this too! (But I’ll bet that my husband is glad that I can’t!)

  4. yarn store?? Best I can do is Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s or Wal-Mart!! Regret that I can’t travel to events like this one!! Alas, I still must work at my day job to pay the bills. Crochet is my passion and my vice!!

  5. Loretta says:

    We don’t even have good yarn stores here in Australia, let alone events like this….very frustrating!

  6. Kelly Stewart says:

    I really wish I could attend but I wish more that the US would do something like this here! Almost done with my hat!

  7. I will be there, hope to meet with you finally!!

  8. Sooo wish I could be there. I agree with the other posters, why don’t we have something like this in the U.S.??

  9. Rose says:

    need to do some of these in Ireland!!

  10. I wish there would be shows in the US! I’m in PA. Even yarn stores are few and far between 😦

    • Kelly Stewart says:

      If you think it’s bad in PA, imagine how bad it is in KS. There is only one yarn store that I know of in Wichita besides Hobby lobby, Joann’s and Michael’s.

    It is wonderful that you are offering these great deals. I am probably not going to make it for Friday morning because I live in Minden, 3 hours away. I wish you could split the yarn and the bags over the 2 days so Saturday people get a chance. But anyway, I will take what I get and be happy that I get to go this year. First time in 2 1/2 years that I have been able to go. Looking forward to seeing the booth and hopefully will be able to get into a seminar. Thanks for being so generous and fun loving.

  12. Linda H says:

    no online orders, doesnt work for me, excited to see the new yars tho. 🙂

  13. shirley says:

    do you have red heart with love?

  14. Susie Geer says:

    How do those of us who are unlucky enough to live too far away (Texas) to attend get one of those cool Red Heart canvas bags?

  15. Teri says:

    I really wish the U.S.A. would do something like this all over the nation. ~*sigh*~
