End of the Lockdown

Finally! News we have been waiting to hear!! It's been a long time (almost two months) of Lockdown in Ontario. We have all been patient and hopefully following the guidelines has paid off.

As the Colour Zones are reimplemented, Greater Sudbury is returning to Orange - Restrict. What does that mean for Sweet Yarns? Starting Thursday, we'll be having customers back in the store. Woo hoo! Tuesday, I am going to spend some time cleaning and rearranging to accommodate the changes. Please read through all the notes below.


Starting Thursday (February 18th), customers will be able to come into the store to shop. We will be limited to three (3) customers at a time to maintain physical distancing.

Please make sure to wear a mask as per the Province's guidelines. We have hand sanitizer available for use.

Please do not touch anything unless you are purchasing it. I am happy to assist with pulling items off the shelves so you can have a better look.

We will continue with our current hours for the time being - Tuesdays (10 to 3), Thursdays (1 to 6) and Saturdays (10 to 3). If the times don't suit, contact the store to book an appointment.

You can shop through the website any time. If you prefer to not shop online, send me your list via emails, messages or a phone messages.

We are continuing to offer curbside pickup, delivery and shipping. We want all our customers to be comfortable and get the supplies they need.



It would be great to reopen our sitting area for knitters and crocheters, however we cannot at this time. When Greater Sudbury returns to Yellow or Green we will open up The Old Haunt again. Until then, you are welcome to drop by if you are stuck on a project and need some help.


You can always connect with other crafters virtually on Facebook.

Virtual Craft Break - Mondays at 12:30PM (half an hour) through Facebook Live.

Virtual Knit Night - Thursdays at 6:30PM (one hour) through Facebook Live.

We also have a Facebook group to share the projects we're working on - Sweet Yarnies.
