The Pandemic Rages On

Rates are going down, but we are still a red level county and with crafter customers, visitors and staff at high risk we need to be extra safe.  As such,please keep the following in mind when you come by the store:

  • Max 8 humans inside at a time.  We may be able to wiggle up to 10 if people arrive together, but we want to stay safe. This specific requirement will lift as soon as we are no longer in the red.
  • Masks are still required in the store for the time being.  Yes, even if the county stops requiring them.  Rates are still crazy and we want to keep everyone safe.
  • If you cannot wear a mask for some reason, call or email ahead.  We can create an online purchase (with items not typically available online) for store pickup that we can bring out to your car.  We just need a little notice to send that to you and gather your order together.  For this option you must call ahead for us to assemble and send you the purchase, then complete the purchase ahead of time for in-store pickup.  The store phone is only answered during open hours.
  • We are still limiting craft nights and classes to 6 people, 6 seats.  As soon as we are not in the red we will bring back the extra seating.  And as soon as the weather is better we will begin putting the table and chairs outside again.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.  Thank you everyone for being so caring and patient with other humans and our safety.  The crafting community has so far been so amazing with everything.  We love it!

The supply chain is also still an issue.  Currently we are having a hard time re-stocking Spark of Madness and Best of the Worsted.  We are not out yet, but numbers available for club purchases and dyed to order are limited.  Hopefully we will be back to normal soon.  We are watching things and while prices are up from suppliers even more than previously, we are doing our best not to raise our yarn prices at the moment.  If anything else changes, you will definitely be alerted as soon as we know.  For now, our prices are remaining as they are at $28 per skein.

Not pandemic related, but Nomad Yarns is moving!  They will no longer be an Indiana based business, but they will still be selling their awesome yarns from afar.  So keep watching them!  They will be taking their remaining kits out of our little shop by the end of this week.  So if you are wanting one, you better grab it soon!

Wow, I feel like this was kind of a downer update.  There are good things coming too!  I promise.  I'm working on scheduling future classes, including looking for crochet teachers and planning for socks as requested.  There is a poll in the Rebel Purl FB group for future classes if you want to put in a vote!  We are adding Cascade 220 Superwash this week.  Those will be in the shop for the first time today.  The Stephen West Slipstravaganza Blanket KAL is starting this week.  And the blocking class is coming up next on March 5th.  Space is very limited, so sign up while you can.  

As always, we are open to suggestions.  We want to carry what you guys want to use for crafting.  If there is something lacking, please let us know.  If we are not able to carry what you are looking for right now, we may be able to special order it for you.  And if you are a local crafter, reach out!  If you sell fiber related craft items, ask about stocking them in the shop.  If you sell anything else and would like to do an art/trunk show in the shop we can check that out. 

Thank you for being awesome and supporting this little loca business.  Let me know if there is any way to make it more fun or helpful for you!
