Mandates change DAILY!!
We will be open for curbside pick-up tomorrow, Tuesday March 24th from 9-12PM. After this time, I will be checking in periodically to ship out orders.
Thanks for your continued support!
Please note as these class changes come in, we will be addressing make-up sessions / refunds/ cancellations etc once things get back to 'normal'.
NEWLY IN: We have just postponed the Cocoknits Sweater workshop that was scheduled Sunday, March 29th.
We will be closing on Sundays starting this week 3/22/1/20.
Carol needs to postpone the 3D Needle Felting Gnome Bunny workshop Thursday March 19th - and no I am not about to try to replace her as instructor!! She is so awesome. Her husband is in the higher risk group and needs to stay home, so she is going to stay close to not bring anything home to him!
We will keep you posted as time goes on.
Sunday 5PM: With the start of allergy season, Mary is going to be postponing all her Crochet classes until further notice.
MONDAY MARCH 16:
At this time the shop continues to stay open should you need supplies. We are adhering to recommended hygiene practices including frequent hand washing, and vigorously cleaning of all work areas as part of a commitment to protecting staff and customers.
See the shop ‘blog; page for updates; remember online purchasing is available as is curbside pickup.
With regards to safe distancing, we have brought out the 2nd bigger table so folks can sit a little further from each other should they need help or come to class, and we will limit the number of customers in the shop at a given time.
Please be sure to call the shop prior to heading out for a class to be sure it is being held. At this time Mary’s crochet classes have been suspended, Anne’s knitting classes and Carol’s felting workshops.
Just a reminder that none of our fabulous yarns come from China and the virus does not appear to survive on packing materials so we are happily opening boxes with inventory to restock the shelves!!
We do have online shopping with shipping, in-store pick-up or curbside pick-up so no need to deprive yourself of some great knitting/ crochet time!
Stay healthy and let us know if there is anything we can do for you!
Ande & staff
March 14, 2020 - What a situation we all find ourselves in!
At this time, we continue to keep the shop open, taking advantage of the slow down to restock shelves, and tackle some tasks that have been put on hold these past months!
As many of our classes are very small anyway, they are being held, please use your judgement and do what works for you!
Drop-ins are still on the schedule, many are down to just 1 or 2 folks, but we are happy to see you!
Beth has set up a Ravelry group for the Drop-ins, if you are not comfortable coming into the shop, why not log in and join the group virtually!!
Beth will be monitoring this regularly, but specifically during our regular Drop-in hours.
Tues 10-12; Wed 10-12; Fri 2-4; Sat 12-2 & Sun 1-3

I hope you were able to stop in and take advantage of our awesome sale in July that was supposed to be a 1 week sale and turned into a whole month! Cleared a lot of shelf space and made room for some wonderful new inventory.... Dorothy brought in some gorgeous new hand-woven scarves, Sue, her daughter has been having fun exploring the world of nuno (wet) felting and we have a few of her felted bird houses on display - so cute! Journals, barrettes and calligraphy pictures have arrived; Picture frames, new colors of SolMate socks are arriving as are several other new items - can't wait!
Of course we have not be slouches on the yarn side either - Cozy Color Works Trunk show has been a great hit! We will be packing it up to return later this week .... and KnitCircus yarns will be arriving in a couple of weeks - our trunk show for September, luscious gradients! Can't wait! Unfortunately, Vrinda Yarns have had a disastrous issue with one of their milling machines and their trunk show has been pushed out to a later date.
New on the calendar, Berroco's fall yarn tasting in September, Cocoknits sweater workshop and Anne is going to be teaching an Arne & Carlos bird workshop.... lots of great things planned for the fall. Remember we have limited seating so don't wait to register!
