All the fiber news!

January 18, 2021
Greetings y'all!

Yarnivore is open daily, 11a-5p Monday-Saturday and 12p-5p Sunday
. We're continuing to work smart so we can serve everyone while we keep staff and the fiber community safe, especially during the latest surge in cases. As y'all probably heard, San Antonio's COVID high hospitalization rate since 12/22 means that retailers must restrict occupancy to 50% of capacity. Yarnivore typically runs below or about 25% occupancy, well within this limit set by Executive Order GA-32. We'll continue to monitor our occupancy and do everything we can to keep y'all safe!

If you're shopping in-store, we require that everyone wear a mask that covers both their mouth and nose. Hand sanitizer is available at the front door and register, plus everyone is welcome to wash their hands in our bathroom. If you need to buy a mask, we have several styles available. 

Yarnivore continues to offer online and in-store shopping, choose what works best for you. We can also assist customers over the phone. Need curbside pickup? No problem, just order online or by phone and then call when you reach the store. 

What's New? 
Yarnivore continues to expand its needlepoint selection. This week we're highlighting our small-but-growing collection of Needle Delights Originals by Kathy Rees. These gorgeous needlepoint patterns use a variety of fibers, including The Caron Collection Watercolours, Kreinik Metallic Braid #12DMC Pearl Cotton 5, and various Rainbow Gallery fibers.
