November @ Sweet Yarns

November at Sweet Yarns

Hard to believe that November is almost here and we'll soon have that white stuff all over the ground. I know you don't want to hear that but we are in Northern Ontario. ;) Just means we are going to need all our knits.

As we head into November, here is the latest news for Sweet Yarns for the month. Please read through all the notes below.

 

SHOPPING

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.

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.

 

Christmas Gift Guide

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.

 

In store knitting

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. 

 

Mystery project kits

Our third Mystery Project Kit is now available for preorder. Each kit comes with video lessons made by Lauren. Pattern and needed notions or accessories are included as well. You just need to add needles. Head over to our website for more information.

I'm not going to tell you what the kits are but I can share the themes in no particular order. The first ones are Level 1 - Cables, Mosaic, Lace. The second ones are Level 2 - Entrelac, German Short Rows, Brioche. The last ones are Level 3 - Intarsia, Fairisle & Steeking, Double Knitting. 

 

Virtual connections

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. 

 

Black Friday Cyber Monday

We're planning some fun things for Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. Make sure to watch for updates coming soon. There will be something special each day.

 

As always, thank you to all those who continue to support Sweet Yarns through all this.

Stay safe and healthy!

Lauren, thanks for all your creative ideas to keep us going with our love of knitting. And thanks for creating and nurturing a virtual community for us with the Virtual Knit Nights and Sweet Yarnies. The Mystery Project Kits are such a fun way to learn new techniques! You’ve done such a great job with the business through these challenging times. Kudos!!
