May 25, 2020 First, as it's Memorial Day, we're taking a moment to think of those who have died while serving in the US military. Honor. Remember. Never forget. Are we open? You betcha! As staff returns to work, we're expanding our hours, woohoo! Starting May 26th, we'll be open 11-6 weekdays, 10-5 Saturdays, and 12-5 Sundays. This means we'll be open 'normal' hours on weekends. Celebrate our mini-milestones with us!
We continue to offer online shopping and curbside pick up for those who prefer that. To use curbside pick up, place your order online. Most of our products are now visible (if you don't see something, email us at YarnivoreSA@gmail.com and we'll move it to the top of the must-add list). If you're shopping in-store, we require that everyone wear masks while in the store. This is to keep everyone safe - many in the fiber community are immune-compromised, so we want to keep everyone (and their loved ones) safe. Also, 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 some available.
Shopping Online tips Having trouble getting through check out? Try refreshing your browser (that circle/arrow thingy near the url bar); this seems to clear most issues. Also, make sure you're not using a broken link. The correct link should have yarnivoresa.net/etcetc (not yarnivoresa.rainadmin/etc etc). If all else fails, you can either call while we're open or email us and we'll take your order over the phone.
Here's how curbside works after you place your order: -We pull your order and mark it as In Process, which notifies you via email that we are working on your order. -Then we pack your order and mark it as Ready for Pickup, which notifies you again via email. After receiving this 'ready' email, you can swing by any time we're open to pick up. -Once you arrive, you can either call or come to the door and we'll hand you your order.
If y'all need info on the latest, go to our COVID-19 page for information & inspiration. We have links to various information (e.g., CDC, City of San Antonio), DIY mask patterns, and ways to stay active and healthy.
If you need to reach us, you can email the store - Wendy & Caryn are answering email from home (YarnivoreSA@gmail.com). Wendy is also leading tutorials on Facebook and teaching private lessons via Google.
If y'all are making face masks and are ready to drop them off, You can drop them off during our open hours or email us to arrange a meet up.
Be safe, be well, be kind, Caryn & the Yarnivore crew
Hiya! We're STILL (gah!) converting our website & point-of-sale to new software. Every product has to be manually entered, including any photos. In the year+ since we converted, we've made a lot of progress, but still need to finish some of the cosmetics and organizing. In the meantime, loading photos and descriptions is pretty time-consuming, so please be patient with us. :)
