Sorry this is late. July came out of nowhere and has been a busy one so far.
Are you enjoying the heat wave? I've been trying to stay in out of the sun, but have also made it out to do some gardening. With my kids around at home all day for so long, we've been keeping busy doing things together too. Not surprisingly, my knitting has taken a bit of a hit.
This email has the latest news for the store. A lot of the new normal continues to remain in effect unfortunately. But it is great to see you when you come in. Remember that I am around if you need me. The quickest way to get a hold of me is through Facebook and email. Thank you for your continued support of Sweet Yarns through this unprecedented time.
We are offering curbside pick up and free delivery in Greater Sudbury. The best way to shop is through our website but you can always contact the store through phone calls and messages. If you do come to the store, I will bring yarns to the counter rather than have you peruse the store yourself. 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.
I will be at the store to answer phone calls and fill orders on:
Tuesdays - 10AM to 5PM
Thursdays - 1PM to 6PM
Saturday - 10AM to 3PM
Or by appointment. Please contact the store to book a time.
Public Health Sudbury and Districts has issued an order that customers are required to wear some kind of face covering when inside all commercial properties. We ask that you bring one with you when you come to Sweet Yarns. We know that this will take some getting used to so we won't be turning any customers away that don't have one with them.
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 are continuing our FO (finished objects) contest throughout the Summer. This one will end in September (date to be determined) and it's focused on Sweet Yarns. What does this mean? All FOs need to feature Sweet Yarns' patterns, colourways OR fibres (yarn, roving, etc.) purchased at the store. All the details have been posted in our Sweet Yarnies Facebook group. Small draws are being held randomly throughout the Summer so post your FOs as soon as you're done.
Yarn tasting kits have been ordered and some kind of events will be scheduled soon. There are still a few tickets left if you want one. Those who have preordered will be contacted in the next week or so. Stay tuned!
We've been having so much fun with preorders that we continue to have more of them. We've added in a bunch of our own kits as well as Berroco's Project of the Week. Please note that the Berroco one changes every Tuesday. I usually get them posted and shared by mid afternoon that day. You have until the following Tuesday to order any you want. Make sure to check back to our website often.
Stay safe and healthy!
