July @ Sweet Yarns

Woo hoo! It's time for Summer vacation! The kids are out of school. The weather is about as warm as it's going to get here in Northern Ontario. Do you have some awesome holiday plans? What does your Summer look like?

Sweet Yarns will not be taking any vacations but there is some news, so here is all the latest information for July at the store. Please read through all the notes below.


Ontario is entering Phase #2 on June 30th which means our shopping guidelines will change slightly. We'll be able to have three (3) customers in store at a time. We want all our customers to feel comfortable shopping so we will continue to offer curbside pickup, deliveries and shipping.

Thursday, July 1 is Canada Day. We will not be open that day for instore shopping (although we are continuing with our Virtual Knit Night). Instead we will have special hours on Friday (July 2) from 10AM to 3PM, and the same on Saturday (July 3).

Our Summer hours (July and August) for Instore Shopping and Curbside Pickup will be - Tuesday (10 to 3), Thursdays (1 to 6) and Saturdays (10 to 3). If the times don't suit, contact the store to book an appointment.

Deliveries in Greater Sudbury occur usually before or after the store hours. Shipping is done usually next business day.

An update to our shopping procedures will be sent out as soon as there are any changes.

Remember, our website is open 24/7. If you have any questions, feel free to send your inquires to the store via emails, social media messages, or phone messages. I'll get back to you as quickly as possible.


Our July Knit-a-long will be this gorgeous sweater - Grouse Creek. I can't wait to get started!! Before we begin, there are a couple things you can do. Head to our website and check out the first of our Unraveling Sweaters blog posts. (We're planning to release new ones most Fridays for July and August.)

And don't stress. We aren't planning to knit a full fingering weight sweater in a month. ;) We're aiming to wrap up the KAL at the end of August.


Who doesn't love new yarn?!?! Berroco has come out with some new great ones to add to their Fall/Winter line. You can preorder your kit of samples now so that you have the yarn and can play with them before or during our event. On Thursday, August 5th, we'll be turning our Virtual Knit Night into a Yarn Tasting event. Make sure to tune in to this Facebook Live.


Preorders have opened for Lauren's Birthday Surprise Boxes! My birthday is at the end of August. Celebrate with me by getting yourself a gift. We'll only be taking preorders for a limited time.


We are having so much fun connecting virtually on Facebook. It's great to have some new people joining in.

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 also have a Facebook group to share the projects we're working on - Sweet Yarnies. 


Have you marked your calendar yet? Our Semi-Annual Clearance Sale starts on July 1st. Shop online on Canada Day then stop by the store Friday or Saturday (10AM to 3PM) to pick up some more good deals in person.



Thank you to all those who continue to support Sweet Yarns through all this. It's so nice having you back in the store. I've missed our little visits while you shop.

Stay safe and healthy!
