Fall started this week and the weather turned so quickly. One day I was wearing shorts, the next I needed a sweater. Are you excited about chilly nights where you want to snuggle up in all the handknit items?
As we head into October, here is the latest news for Sweet Yarns for the month. Please read through all the notes below.
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.
Now that we're back to five days a week, I'll be taking a few little holidays.
The first one is Thanksgiving weekend. Sweet Yarns will be closed Saturday, October 9th to Monday, October 11th.
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.
Our second Mystery Project Kit is now available for preorder. We also have a few of the first one available for purchase. Head on over to our website. 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.
Our Fall A-Longs will be starting soon. We're slightly delayed as we're waiting for yarn to arrive from suppliers but that means there is still time for you to join in. If you need help choosing, I'm happy to help find patterns and yarns to fit your budget. Stop by or contact the store. It's always fun to work on the same projects as others so you can share the struggles and the successes.
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.
As always, thank you to all those who continue to support Sweet Yarns through all this.
Stay safe and healthy!
