We're all holding on...
Right now, it seems like things are crazier every day. There is so much information, and so many numbers floating through cyberspace, it's overwhelming - every single day. Please remember that in this time of stress, we all need to take a break when we can. For some, it's easier than others. Lots of us are staying safe at home, but that doesn't mean we can't take a walk or run, binge the online 'networks', or (the best choice for quilters) sit down and sew. For essential employees, things are more difficult, but we hope that you, too, take some down time for yourself, even if you're isolated due to your job. Grab a book, plan a quilt, write a story, or phone a friend. We all need to take care of ourselves so we may take care of our families and our futures.
Things have changed for Yankee Pride, too. Since we are not an essential business, the shop remains closed until Governor Scott deems it safe to reopen. We are allowed, however, to keep our online business going. In that spirit, we thank those of you who have shopped online with us already, whether it's gift certificates or fabric. You, our customers, are keeping us going, and we appreciate it more than you know. Marti and Cindy stop in a few times a week, for a few hours, to process orders and get them mailed out. If you choose Store Pickup when you place an order, we will call or email you when your order is ready, to set a time for pickup.
You can still contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, or call the shop at 802/872-9300 and leave a voicemail message. We will return your call when we come in to the shop. Visit us at yankeepridequilts.com for your online shopping, or for a color tour if you need a quick pick-me-up. We've got more than 1,500 bolts of fabric on the website, every one beautiful to look at (at this point, even the uglies are looking good!).
Your Yankee Pride staff remains safe and healthy, and we sincerely hope all of our customers are healthy, too. Lean on each other (by phone, Zoom, or email only!), and we'll get through this crisis. Take care.
