Store News:

Our storefront is open again! We have implemented some new guidelines, which I will be posting on our website. Here are the essentials:

  • Please do not come in if you are sick, even if you do not have Covid. If any of us get sick with anything, we cannot come to work. Please respect our health by not coming in if you are feeling at all unwell.
  • Only 2 people in the shop at one time. As you come in, please check with staff to see if you can come in - or just take a quick look to see if there are other people already there.
  • Please don’t linger if there are other people waiting. You can ‘pre-shop’ on the website to get an idea of what you might be interested in - that way you can be more efficient on the busier shopping days.
  • We are only having 1 staff member at a time, so please be respectful of their time. They can’t offer hands-on help (we cannot touch your yarn or needles) but we can give advice, time permitting. If you need detailed help, please email us
  • Please use hand sanitizer when you come in, and only touch things you might buy.
  • From 11am to Noon on weekdays, we are open only to Seniors and those with Health Concerns

Our online shop is still open for store pick ups; we have shifted our ‘Free Shipping’ minimum to $75 now that the store has reopened. If you want to pick up your order, we will email you when it is ready. Please come between Noon and 5:30pm on weekdays, and by 4:30pm on weekends.

 

Wet Coast Wools Bingo-a-Long 2020!
Could the June Winner please contact us to arrange collection of your prize!

 

This month is July, which is Finish a Winter Item in July Month!

The item can be a decoration or holiday themed item for any December/early January holiday (not Halloween) It can also be a gift for someone, provided you are gifting it for that holiday. December Birthdays don’t count! You have to finish the item in July, but you can have started it whenever (so get started now!)

If you are doing multiple bingo boards, you need to finish all your winter items in July!

Rules for Bingo

  • You must declare your two challenges by January 31st
  • You must create 24 unique projects, no double dipping You must have Ravelry project pages for all your projects
  • You need to be a member of the Wet Coast Woolies Group in order to qualify for a prize.
  • Your challenges cannot be the same as things that are already on the board, unless you plan to do two of those things. Someone is making three Christmas stockings, for example; one is for the ‘winter holiday’ item, the other 2 are for the challenge square.
  • You can keep moving around your FOs until you declare a completed row. Once you claim a row, those items have to stay in their assigned squares!
  • In Episodes 89, 90, and 91, we gave some notes on special squares.

There are also a lot of questions (and answers!) in the Bingo 2020 registration thread, and the January/February Chatter Thread.

Ask us if you are unsure about anything - be sure to tag us so that we don’t miss your question.
