The days are getting longer and brighter. Next thing you know Summer will be here and it will be camping season. Gardening too. What are your favourite things about the warmer weather? I'm having so much fun working on projects to wear as soon as it's a little hotter outside. And the tulips in my front garden will soon be blooming.
As for the store, here is all the latest news for Sweet Yarns for the month of May. Please read through all the notes below.
The Stay-Home order continues for most of the month (finger crossed it won't get extended again). This means we are unable to have any customers in the store at this time. We are offering curbside pickup, deliveries and shipping.
Our current hours continue for curbside pickup - Tuesday (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.
Deliveries in Greater Sudbury occur usually before or after the store hours. Shipping is done usually next business day.
You can shop through the website any time. If you prefer to not shop online, send me your list via emails, messages or phone calls.
An update to our shopping procedures will be sent out as soon as there are any changes.
Spring yarns continue to arrive along with backordered items as they become available. We've also gotten in some new products lately. Sudz crafting cotton is a huge hit and sells out quickly along with our new cloth designs. And we have all the supplies in for needle felting which is definitely a fun hot-weather or stress relieving project.
Need something else? We're happy to order it in for you. Contact the store and we'll see what we can do for you.
Our current Virtual MAL (make-a-long) continues. It's so great to see everyone's progress through our Sweet Yarnies Facebook group.
It's not too late to join in if you want something to wear this Summer. We've got great ideas and lots of time still to craft them. Contact the store for some help picking your projects.
We are having so much fun connecting virtually on Facebook. It's great to have some new people joining in.
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.
Coming in June... is Sock-a-palooza!! We've done it a few times before and it's great fun. Details will be coming soon but basically we're going to spend the month making as many socks as we can. It's for all skill levels so plan on joining in. Need yarn? We're working on getting in some more sock yarns although the solid colours are starting to pile up. We should have another batch of cotton sock yarn soon too. Start planning which ones you're going to make and collect yarn for them.
Thank you to all those who continue to support Sweet Yarns through all this. I'm so glad we're still here. Can't wait to have you all back in the store.
Stay safe and healthy!
