Oh, how quickly things change...
Two weeks ago, we were looking forward to spring, and all it has to offer. Now we're practicing social distancing (was this even a thing last month?), events across the world have been cancelled, and things seem more than a little unsure in our lives. Here at the shop, we are adjusting right along with everyone else, and we will keep you up to date as best we can. In the shop itself, we are cleaning counters, doors, writing implements, and other commonly used paraphernalia several times a day, in addition to the (seemingly) nonstop hand washing. As far as events at the shop go, here is where we stand right now:
*Vermont Shop Hop 2020 has been postponed. There are more details below.
*Spring 2020 Mystery class will not meet at the shop for Class 4 or Class 5. See below for more details on this.
*Yankee Pride will remain open, for our usual hours, until further notice.
*For those who do not feel comfortable coming into the shop, or who do not want to leave their homes, the following information is for you:
We have been building up our website fabric inventory, and to date, have approximately 1500 bolts available online. These are the same fabrics that are in the shop (pink barcoded bolts for our in-store customers). You can place an online order at yankeepridequilts.com, and have it shipped to you, or you can pick it up at the shop. If you choose Store Pickup, we will fill your order, and email you when it's ready. We can even meet you at the door when you arrive, order bagged and ready to go.
If you need something that is not yet available online but you know is in the shop, we can still take phone orders, too. Phone orders can also be picked up at the shop or shipped. You just need to let us know what works for you.
We quilters are resilient, and part of what helps us through is our ability to soothe our souls with fabric and thread. Every member of our staff is working through the same issues as you, our customers, are. We want everyone to stay safe and healthy, and we want things to return to normal as quickly as possible.
