Everyone else has their Covid 19 response/update so I guess I might as well get on that bandwagon.
Hopefully most of you know by now that the store front for Love & Stitches is closed for the time being. Yarn is essential to our lives but many others don't see it that way. Plus this is our little way of reducing contact to help stop the spread of this nasty virus. Many people near and dear to me are immunocompromised so I am taking the social distancing thing very seriously.
Looking on the brighter side of things though... This whole situation gave me the kick in the butt I needed to finally put the store online. I've been wanting to do this since I started but it was pushed down the to do list as other things came up. Thanks to the wonderful Hannah, we were able to take pictures of all the yarn to put up on the website. By tonight all of our yarn will be up online for you to shop through. I'm hoping to have stitch marker sets up this week too.
If you need help shopping for colors or picking yarn for your next project feel free to call or message. My teacher schedule is a LOT more flexible at the moment so I am able to answer phone calls and messages during the day.
Once you have filled up your online cart there are some options for getting your stuff. At first we only had shipping as an option, but we have since added pick up at the store and local deliveries. If picking up at the store don't mind me as I stand further away than normal. For local deliveries (Utica, Whitesboro, New Hartford area) please let me know where to leave your package such as mailbox, side door, front door, garage, etc.
At the moment we do not have the hand dyed Shirsty Cat BFL Sock up on the website. All our skeins are different so I haven't taken pictures of all of them. If you would like to purchase the BFL Sock please call or message and we will be happy to help.
Last thing.... we are still offering to wind your hanked yarn! Yes, we will wind yarn from your order if you need. There's a little box you can check on the item page when choosing colors of hanked yarn. Check that box if you want your yarn wound into a cake for FREE!
Oh and when you order with us you will find a cute little surprise <3
Hope to see you soon! Stay healthy and safe
