Our storefront is open for in-store shopping! Please wear a mask when you come to the shop!
Please do not come in if you are feeling unwell, even if you do not have Covid.
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
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.

WCW Virtual Knit Groups
These are being held on Monday Nights from 7:00pm to around 8:00pm, and on Thursday Mornings from 11:30am to about 1:30pm. Look for the Zoom meeting links in our ravelry

We have a number of giveaways coming up - they will be announced on Instagram and Ravelry, so keep an eye on those sources and find out how to enter.
Temporary Closure of In-Store Shopping
Due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in BC, we have temporarily closed our bricks and mortar shop. We feel that there is an increased risk right now in the busy store environment, even with all of our precautionary measures in place. Our biggest concern continues to be, the health and wellness of our staff and customers.
Online shopping is still available, however, there will be some delays in processing and shipping of orders. Local Pick-Up will also be delayed. We will contact you to arrange a pick up time.
