Store News:
Our storefront is open again! Please wear a mask when you come to the shop!

  • 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 be efficient with your time 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 are thinking about buying.

  • 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.
