As much as we don't want it to, the white stuff is coming. We had a light dusting of it already just to get us started. Does the white stuff inspire you to get crafting accessories? Did you buy a new coat that you need some new woolies to match? Now is the time to add to your stash so you can craft away on those snowed-in days.
This email has all the latest news for Sweet Yarns. The current new normal will continue for the month of November as long as things with the government don't change.
Our current hours will be continuing into November. Wednesday will be reserved for classes, private lessons and appointments (must be booked at least the day before).
The store will be open for shopping: Tuesdays - 10AM to 5PM, Thursdays - 1PM to 6PM, and Saturday - 10AM to 3PM, at which times I will be returning messages and filling orders. If those times don't suit, you can book an appointment. Please contact the store to book a time.
We will continue to offer curbside pick up and free delivery in Greater Sudbury. We are taking cash, debit and credit cards in store, etransfers and credit cards over the phone or messages, or credit cards and PayPal through the website. When you do come into the store, you are welcome to peruse the shelves however we are asking that you not touch anything unless you are purchasing it. We want all our customers to be comfortable and get the supplies they need whichever way suits best.
We've got a great list of options for classes we can teach up on our website. Purchase a class and we will contact you to work out a time for your in-person lesson. Please contact the store if you have any questions. Since we are keeping a flexible schedule, they're all pretty much one-on-one lessons, mostly scheduled on Wednesdays during the day, but we are able to fit in other times as well.
Our virtual fun continues twice weekly. Make sure to tune in on Facebook. (They are saved if you miss any and want to catch up.)
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.
After discussing with our Thursday nighters during a Facebook Live, we decided to do another extended draw that will have a few prizes. All the details are posted in our Sweet Yarnies group. Now is a great time to join the group if you haven't yet. Catch up with other crafters and get inspired by what they are working on.
As you think about putting new projects on your needles and hooks, Sweet Yarns is working on getting yarns and accessories for all the things you want to make. We're still ordering often from Berroco as they continue to offer those great Project Of The Week kits. We recently restocked our pompom selection so it's a great time to be working on toques.
Please note though that our suppliers are still working with delays as some of their yarns, tools and accessories come from other countries outside of North America. If you have ordered something and you haven't heard from me yet, it's likely that what you wanted was delayed. As always, as soon as your order arrives, we get a hold of you and let you know.
It's always fun to try something new. If you haven't seen the samples yet, I've been knitting with beads lately. I did one hat pattern and designed another. My design will be coming out soon but we've already started carrying some beads in store. You can check them out on our website.
We have other new products coming soon so make sure to keep checking the website or follow us on social media for the latest updates.
Stay safe and healthy!!
