What a whirlwind! Thank you so much for your orders, your words of support, and bearing with us as we navigate this new hiccup in these uncertain pandemic times. We appreciate it more than you know! As a thank you, please continue to use the coupon code COVID19 to get 20% off your order until we decide to turn the coupon off. Enjoy some discounted shopping on us!
We are resuming curbside pickup today, 7/14/2020, with limited hours for now. Today's curbside pick up hours are 11 am-2 pm. Keep an eye on our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram) for updates to our hours. We post each morning and you can see posts if you click the links even if you aren't signed up with these social media outlets. If you received a call last week that your order is ready for pick up, your order is ready. Otherwise, please wait for a call from us before heading out. We are operating with a limited staff right now and processing orders as quickly as possible. If your order includes the Creative Grids Face Mask Template, it will not be ready for pick up until the day after the box arrives (fingers crossed for today). There are still a few templates available for pre-order on our website, so grab one and we'll get it pulled for you when our shipment comes in!
It's fun to get a little pop of Christmas at the shop during the heat of summer and this year's Deer Christmas offerings from Urban Chiks do not disappoint. We still have a couple of the awesome Deer Christmas kits but once they're gone, they are gone! The finished quilt measures ~70" x 78" and the kit includes all the fabric you need for the top, including the digital Deer Panel, pattern, plus binding (pre-cut as 2.5" strips). Just add backing -- and this Polka Dot Deer print from the line would be perfect! We also have some layer cakes and charm packs from the line in stock and a few pieces of last season's Sweet Christmas, which coordinate nicely with this year's line.
We know many of our yarn folks have heard about the Berroco 123Dropship program where you can order Berroco yarn from us that we don't have in stock and Berroco will ship it straight to you (usually very quickly). Berroco has been putting together some kits and we have added one to our website for order called the Zig Zag Jardin using the Millefiore yarn in a 50% Wool, 50% Acrylic blend. You can also order the Zig Zag Arcade kit made with one color of the Berroco Medina yarn, which is a 37% Cotton, 36% Acrylic, 27% Viscose blend perfect for summer knitting. If you have not seen all the yarns that you can purchase through us but have shipped straight from Berroco, check them out here. There are so many different fiber blends including their Modern Cotton, Modern Cotton DK, Liana, Cambria, Remix Light and Remix, (linen blends) that would be great for summer yarn work!
For information on making face masks, check out our Charity Projects page. Please also share our GoFundMe fundraiser with your friends and family who might like to help out with masks but cannot help with the sewing of them. Our fundraiser is helping to pay for the fabric that we are providing to anyone who asks (over $5000 given away so far) and to supplement the pay for the shop employees during this time of limited work hours.
We appreciate the support you've shown us during these uncertain times. Whether you are an essential worker during this crisis or doing your part to #stayhome, you are in our thoughts!
