Store Status

I continue to ship orders. Due to Covid-19, delivery may take longer than usual, depending on postal service capacity. Please call or email before visiting the store.

Some of my suppliers are operating with reduced staff, so special ordering yarn may be iffy until people are able to return to work. Inventory counts are now displayed for all yarn — the numbers in the computer don't always match what's on the shelf, but should be pretty close.

We have had a lot of problems with our phone service recently. If your call disconnects after 1 ring, or rings forever without an answer, please use the contact form to email us, or send a message through facebook. Sometimes we can make calls but not receive them, so it's not obvious on our end there's a problem.
