Coronavirus pandemic: Information for customers

Our governor has closed all non-essential businesses in Ohio. Even though many of us would argue that yarn is essential, we are following the rules. However we do have a staff member going in every couple of days to check phone messages and email for orders. Our webstore is also an option for placing orders. We are modeling ourselves as a warehouse for now and are happy to ship orders. Stay safe and keep knitting and crocheting. It’s the happy place for many of us these days.


Shop hours may be affected by Coronavirus. Please call ahead!
