August already?!? The Summer is flying by so quickly. Hope you enjoyed your long weekend. All of a sudden the hot weather has disappeared. I hope it returns.
This email has all the latest news for Sweet Yarns. The current new normal will continue to remain in effect although we are making some slight adjustments. Please read through below.
It's been so good seeing you all when you've been stopping 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.
Our current hours are continuing however we are now offering private lessons and appointments on Wednesdays (must be booked at least the day before). I'm working on getting the store back into shape for customers to peruse the shelves however we are asking that you not touch anything unless you are purchasing it.
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.
We will continue to offer curbside pick up and free delivery in Greater Sudbury. We want all our customers to be comfortable and get all the supplies they need.
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.
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 also have some hand sanitizer for you to use when you come in. If you would like some of your own, check out the one we sell made by Soak.
VIRTUAL TRUNK SHOW
The Frosted Stitch, a local indie dyer, is bringing in a box of her yarn. We're doing a Virtual Trunk Show on Saturday, August 15th on Facebook at 10:30AM, then her products will be available for purchase afterwards. You can find her on Facebook and her own website to check out her stuff ahead of time. https://www.thefrostedstitch.ca/
CRAFTING IN STORE
I know a lot of you have missed getting together, so we're going to try some crafting in store again. Starting the week of August 10th, you can book time on a Tuesday or Saturday to come in and craft. There is limited seating so we can ensure physical distancing guidelines. We won't likely be able to fit in any drop ins due to restrictions. If you are interested, need more information, or to book at time, please contact the store.
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.
BERROCO'S PROJECT OF THE WEEK
Berroco's Project of the Week is continuing throughout the month of August. Don't forget to check back on our website under Preorders every Tuesday afternoon to see what the latest one is.
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.
Stay safe and healthy! Hope you are enjoying your time at home.
