You're Invited!

Please join us at
Mount Hope Farm for the
4th Annual Culmination Ceremony for
The Great Rhody Yarn Crawl
Sunday, April 13, 2014

Mount Hope Farm is an historic farm with over 200 acres of land and many historic buildings. The trust that owns and operates the Farm strives to keep the farm open and accessible to the public by hosting many public events such as a weekly Farmer's Market 

The Fiber Arts Marketplace at the Culmination Ceremony is chock full of New England hand crafters and tasty treats! Come have lunch or a cupcake and delicious cup of coffee and turn in your Crawl Passport. Each stamp on your Passport gets you one entry into the raffle for our Grand Prize Basket. The more stores you visit, the more chances you have to win. Visit every stop on the Crawl for an extra raffle ticket! Mount Hope Farm will be accepting donations for the East Bay Food Pantry.

NOTE! You do not have to attend the Culmination Ceremony to be eligible for the store prize baskets. Each store on the Crawl will have their own prize basket full of awesome things from our sponsors. The Culmination Ceremony and Grand Prize Basket is a special, extra prize and an added incentive to visit as many shops as you can! And, of course, an excellent excuse to meet up with some friends, visit a beautiful local landmark, and do a bit more shopping. The drawing will take place at 4pm so there will be plenty of time to fit some Crawling in before stopping by the Farm.
