The new spacious setup in the retail store is working out well, providing plenty of space for social distancing while browsing or talking to our staff. We are adding to our inventory, with new cotton blend yarns in a variety of gauges as well as plumping up the supply of our hand dyed yarns.
It was difficult to be closed and while we all felt a little isolated from our knitting community at the store we found new ways to be together with Zoom knitting and spinning groups. In many ways the new tools for communicating have expanded our engagement with the crafters around us near and far. What a welcome gift to come from tragic circumstances.
Now that we are back open it is almost a giddy feeling to talk in person to you!
We are open Monday through Saturday 10 to 5:30 for the time being. I hope you are able to stop in. If you come during the week chances are good you will have the store to yourself for your visit. There’s plenty of room to social distance, and we are asking everyone to wear a mask to protect our loyal staff.
Also don’t forget we keep adding new items to our new shopping site, so drop in from time to time to see what’s being featured. Just click on the Shop button on the top of the website menu to visit.
Thank you to everyone for continuing to support us through the crisis and for keeping us in mind for your crafting needs. We really appreciate you! You’ve made it possible to hang in there.
Remember that the Slow Crawl is now underway, and we have a smashing new pattern available for crawlers, made in our hand dyed yarns. See it on the Slow Crawl Ravelry page, it is called The Plum Street Blouse! Thanks again and stay well.
