Hop on the Bus and Come Knit with Us!



Jimmy's Biggest Little Bus Tour!

8/4/17 Update: The August 5th Bus Tour is SOLD OUT! Click here for our September and October tour dates.

It has been Jimmy's undying dream to bring California's fiber enthusiasts to the Biggest Little City for a fun-filled day of knitting, games, prizes, how-to workshops, and of course, shopping! At long last, that dream has finally become a reality with our first ever "Jimmy's Biggest Little Bus Tour!"

Knittin' Better to Do on a Saturday? 
Hop on the Bus and Come Knit with Us!



Are you a Bay Area/Sacramento resident in need of a yarn fix? Or, maybe you’re looking for a way to spend a fun, yarn-filled day away from your kids and hubby? If the thought of planning something like that is too much to take on, consider hopping on “Jimmy’s Biggest Little Tour Bus!”

Don’t wanna drive? Let us drive you!

We've scheduled our maiden voyage to depart from Emeryville with a stop in West Sacramento on Saturday, August 5th. If you're in either neighborhood that day, we invite you to hop on the bus and come knit with us!

Imagine boarding the bus and finding a swag bag of goodies on your seat. Imagine a day of entertainment free from your kids and husband (although he can of course tag along if he wants to 😉)! Mix in social knitting time, games to win prizes, a MASSIVE YARN SWAP, and plenty of fun surprises along the way, and a YARNTASTIC time is sure to follow! And fans of the podcast 2 Knit Lit Chicks can rejoice as well - both Barb and Tracie will be along for the ride!  

The fun doesn't stop with the bus ride! Upon arrival, you can expect to enjoy the following: 
  • Tour 22,000 sq. feet of Yarn-topia with an all-access tour of our retail store and warehouse. 
  • Meet & Greet with owner Jimmy (a.k.a Laura) and local designer Romi Hill!
  • Enjoy a delicious catered lunch on site, and a hearty snack for the ride home. We'll even do the dishes!!
  • Learn the art of hand-dying yarn during a class taught by our in-house designer, Rachel Roden!
  • Meet the Beans who work behind the scenes to make sure you have the most yarntastic experience when you place your orders or have a question!
  • Hop back on the bus, sit back, relax and enjoy the yarn-buzz.
  • Such a sweet deal for $150! (and cheaper than a flight!)

  • Pick up at 7:00 AM on August 5th in Emeryville, CA (1555 40th St. Emeryville, CA 94608, next to Target)
  • Pick up at 8:30 in West Sacramento (755 Riverpoint Ct, next to Walmart)
