Our “Soft Reopening” is Tuesday May 19th, but it’s a modified, slow, cautious reopening with LOTS of physical distancing. Curb-side pick-up and shipping are still preferred, but the store will also be open for shopping by appointment. Because of physical distancing requirements we will NOT be holding classes, private lessons, Sit ‘n Knit or any kind of hanging out.
Store Hours: Monday to Saturday 11am to 5pm
Shop by Appointment
I really want you to stay safe, and it’s still really important that people maintain physical distancing protocols and limit physical contact, so starting Tuesday May 19, 2020 we will be open for In-Store shopping by APPOINTMENT. To keep our clients and staff safe we are implementing the following physical distancing measures:
- Only one customer is allowed in the store at a time.
- Please mind personal space and stay approximately 2 metres (6 feet) from other people.
- We are accepting contactless forms of payment like a credit or debit card with ‘tap’ or Apple Pay, etc. Cash is not accepted.
- Customers MUST bring and wear a mask – the type is your choice. We can not provide masks.
- Appointments are 20 minutes long.
Appointments can be booked online quickly and easily. I’ve installed a new online booking system, and it’s fast and easy. You can see our entire schedule and book your appointment up to one hour in advance (for anything shorter than that please call us: 416-653-7849). The system will send you a confirmation by email & text, a reminder before your appointment, and you can easily change or cancel your appointment from those contacts.
On a personal note, I think it’s a bit too early to reopen the economy and have people mingling. I know the government says it’s ok, but the chief medical officer does not, and I prefer to get my science from scientists. I know everyone is sick of jumping through hoops and wants to get back to normal, I do too, but we’re still in the middle of a pandemic. Our curb-side pick-up and shipping have been working REALLY well, so if you are in a high risk group or have family who are, PLEASE don’t put yourself in harm’s way for yarn – it’s just not worth it. I don’t think you need to be afraid, just be cautious and smart, right now it doesn’t hurt to be a little conservative.
