Have you been wrapping yourself up in all the knits yet? Fall is always such an odd time and it's best to throw on all the layers so you can peel them all off later, keeping them handy for when the weather changes it's mind again. Do you need some more knits? Maybe some new ones? It's time to get your hooks and needles busy!
Here's all the latest news for Sweet Yarns. The current new normal will continue for the month of October as long as things with the government don't change.
Our current hours will be continuing into October. Wednesday will be reserved for classes, private lessons and appointments (must be booked at least the day before).
The store will be open: 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.
For October's classes, we are focusing on Mosaic colourwork and Socks. These, and other classes we are currently able to teach, are up on our website. Purchase a class and we will contact you to work out a time for your lesson. Please contact the store if you have any questions.
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.
We're returning to our monthly draws for finished objects. All the details will be posted in our Sweet Yarnies group on October 1st. 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.
Stay safe and healthy!
