How was your Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend? Did you do lots of shopping? Quite a few of you enjoyed the great deals we had on at Sweet Yarns.
And, just like that, the white stuff has returned. Was nice to have most of November without too cold weather or snow storms. I guess we're into it now. Time to get out the knits!!
As we head into December, here is the latest news for Sweet Yarns for the month. Please read through all the notes below.
Our current shopping hours continue. We are open Tuesday to Saturday from 10AM to 3PM, other than Thursday which is 1PM to 6PM. As we are a retail shop, proof of vaccination is not required. We ask that you make sure to give everyone lots of space as they shop as the physical distancing rule is still in affect.
We'll have these shortened hours so that I can continue to do deliveries for the foreseeable future. Deliveries in Greater Sudbury occur usually before or after the store hours.
If you need to shop outside of our hours, please contact the store and we'll do our best to set up a time that works for you. I know it's a busy time with getting ready for Christmas and I'm happy to do what I can to help you out.
You can shop on our website 24/7. You can pick up your orders at the store, have it delivered to your home in Greater Sudbury, or have it shipped to you through Canada Post if you live farther away. Shipping is done usually next business day.
An update to our shopping procedures will be sent out as soon as there are any changes.
Every year at this time, I close down the store for a short break to enjoy some time with my family. I'm looking forward to sleeping in and having lots of knitting time.
The store will close on Thursday, December 23rd at 6PM, and reopen on Tuesday, January 4th at 10AM.
If you've been on our website lately, you may have notice our Christmas Gift Guide. I've put together all kinds of ideas for gifts you can make now, gifts for someone to purchase for you, and gifts that will fit in your stocking. Updates will be coming as products arrived at the store and a few website updates happen. Make sure to keep checking it out.
It is so lovely having crafters back in the store to work on their projects. We have spots available most days from 11 to 2 but as we are limited due to physical distancing. If you are interested in reserving a spot in The Old Haunt lounge, please contact the store.
And now that snow has arrived, please make sure to bring a change of shoes with you.
We're continuing to meet virtually until the physical distancing is over. We're doing a Virtual Knit Night - Thursdays at 6:30PM (one hour) through Facebook Live. And we have a Facebook group to share the projects we're working on - Sweet Yarnies. Make sure you come join us over there.
There are plans in the works to have an In Store Knit Night once again starting in the new year. If numbers drop low enough, we'll hold one once a month on the third Thursday. Details will becoming when we schedule the first one. Keep your fingers crossed that the numbers head in the right direction in the next month. It would be so great to get everyone back together.
As always, thank you to all those who continue to support Sweet Yarns through all this.
Stay safe and healthy!
