5.29.20 -- Reopening Information

 June is right around the corner ….  That means we are getting closer to opening  ..….. 

We are working diligently towards our Phase 2 opening which is currently set for June 8th. This date is fully dependent on the data trends continuing to move in the right direction. In the meantime, we will continue to ship orders out, do curbside pick-up, and local (Northboro) delivery. Current shop hours are Mon, Tues, Wed & Fri 10-3, and by appointment on Saturdays.

Our goal is to open the store on Monday June 8th, after Governor Baker’s press conference. We will announce our opening status on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages following Governor Baker’s announcement. Once open, we will be maintaining our regular hours: Mon – Fri 10-5, Sat 10-4 and Sunday 12-4. To start, we will not remain open any evenings except for classes.

We will all be wearing masks or shields, and you will be required to wear one as well. We will be able to provide you with a disposable mask if you don't have one, ($1 donation).  Cloth ones will be  available for sale from our quilters/ seamstresses. If you have an underlying health issue that makes wearing a mask difficult or impossible, we encourage you to shop online or arrange curbside pick-up.

For your safety and comfort, we will be social distancing as much as possible when helping you choose yarn,  reviewing your patterns and helping to fix issues with your work. At this time, we are not planning on having one-way directions in the shop, but will limit the number of customers in the shop at one time.

We are in the process of obtaining canopies large enough to accommodate our classes and social knitting outside weather permitting and as you are comfortable attending.  Our Zoom social meetings will continue as requested, as will some of our virtual classes/ workshops.

While the CDC recently announced they no longer feel surface to human transfer of the virus is likely, we will be sanitizing high traffic surfaces prior to opening, during business hours, and again after closing. Bottles of hand sanitizers will be located around the shop, you will be asked to sanitize your hands as you enter the store, we will be happy to pump for you should you wish as these are not touchless.

We will accept returns, per our normal policy (they will be quarantined prior to being put back out for sale), we will wind your yarn as needed/ requested, you will be asked to sit outside, or come back later to pick the skeins up.

We miss you all and cannot wait to welcome you back! It is imperative we do so within the guidelines set by Governor Baker as we want all of you and our awesome team to be safe. We will continue to update you as we get closer to our reopening date.

Thanks for all your support, stay safe!
