Masks are here to stay, and they’re becoming our new fashion accessories. Whether you make masks for your family or to donate, you know that elastic and cotton fabric are scarce and expensive right now. We have elastic, pre-made loops with slides, nose strips, and fabric pieces (fat quarters) that will make two or more masks, depending on your pattern. The supply should soon catch up with the demand, but we plan to keep these supplies in stock for your convenience.
We love SURPRISES !!!
We no longer have a clearance bin. Who wants to dig through yarn that other people have handled, anyway? Instead, while the shop was closed we packaged “Mystery bags”. These are samples, discontinued colors, surplus, quality yarns that you will receive at half price or less! Our older loose patterns and books are also packaged. At $3.00 for a pattern pack or $10.00 for a yarn bag, it’s a tremendous deal.
The year without a crawl
We opted out of the North Texas Yarn Crawl this year. We felt that an event where people traveled from shop to shop during the pandemic, could place our Customers, (our Friends), at risk. We also could not in good conscience hold an event which pressured people to spend money when so many are struggling financially. We thought of closing the shop during the crawl (September 11-20) but decided we should remain open for our local customers. Therefore, during those dates the shop will be open by appointment only.
To our customers, our friends…
We miss you. Stay home if you can, and stay safe. If you come in, know that we’re cleaning daily. We have your back. Call or email with your questions, or just to chat. Laugh often, stay in stitches. We want to see you in good health again and again.
That’s the news from Around the Corner. Stay warm and stitch on.
