Where is our late summer heat wave?
It seems that we're going straight into Fall this year. Chilly nights, cooler days, and that haze in the sky from the fires out west have us speeding into autumn. Some of us on staff pulled jackets out this week, and others are fighting it every step of the way, with dresses, shorts, and sandals still part of our wardrobe. It's another odd month in a very odd year.
If you've visited us in the shop, you may have noticed that our inventory is down a bit. We've sold a lot of fabric over the last six months, and for much of that time, the fabric manufacturers were closed down, just like most businesses. They are up and running again, trying to catch up, but we are far from the only quilt shop in the country needing fabric, so it takes some time. Judy has met with most of our sales reps, and has ordered from everyone. Much of the fabric coming in to Yankee Pride now is tone-on-tone prints, because that's what was available to us. Over the next few months, more fabric variety should be arriving, and we will share it with you as we get it.
If you are coming to see us:
*Masks are mandatory, for both customers and staff.
*Please sanitize and/or glove at the door when you come in.
(If you sanitize only, your hands must be completely dry before you touch any fabric)
*Store capacity is 4 customers at once.
*We will remain closed on Sundays until further notice.
We are still processing orders to ship, and Store Pickups, so feel free to shop online if you're not comfortable coming in. Cindy has put more than 1,900 bolts of our inventory on the website, and Marti has added thread and books. We're doing our very best to make your Yankee Pride experience a good one, whether you're walking among the bolts or shopping from your couch.
