March means that the end of Winter is almost here. It's been a long, cold one and I'm happy to see it ending soon. This doesn't mean it's time to lay down our hooks and needles. It means it's time to change up the yarn. ;)
As March begins, here is the latest news for Sweet Yarns for the month. Please read through all the notes below.
Our instore shopping hours continue. We are open Tuesday to Saturday from 10AM to 3PM, other than Thursday which is 1PM to 6PM. We ask that you make sure to give everyone lots of space as they shop as the physical distancing rule is still in affect. Masks are still required for the time being.
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 store hours.
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.
It was a wonderful time exploring all the new yarns from Berroco for their Spring line. I've written up a blog post that includes all the information about the yarns as well as links to colourways and patterns.
If you would still like to get a yarn tasting kit, they are available as a preorder through the website for a little bit longer. It's a great opportunity to try out all the yarns without investing in full skein.
Inspired by the Yarn Tasting, we're working on plans and orders for our next knit-a-long. A couple of tops and yarns were favourites. If you are interested in joining in the KAL, make sure to head over to our Sweet Yarnies (Facebook group) and join in the discussion. We'll be ordering yarn in a few weeks and plan to get the KAL started around the beginning of April.
We're excited to have the return of our In Store Knit Nights after a two year hiatus.
On the third Thursday of each month, we'll be taking a break from our Virtual Knit Nights and have an in store one.
Arrival time: 5PM - 6PM
Knitting time: 6PM - 8PM
The store will be closed for shopping other than those in attendance at the Knit Night. Seats must be booked head as only 12 spots are available. Looking forward to getting everyone back together.
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 since we've got snow, 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 with the exception of the In Store Knit Nights. And we have a Facebook group to share the projects we're working on - Sweet Yarnies. Make sure you come join us over there.
As always, thank you to all those who continue to support Sweet Yarns through all this.
Stay safe and healthy!
