Yarnivore is open daily, 11a-5p Monday-Saturday and 12p-5p Sunday (this includes President's Day). 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.
If you've been in the store, you've probably noticed that we're moving things around. To do this, we've had to empty some shelves and shift yarns to a new places. We've also marked down some of the less popular yarns (yay, more clearance for y'all!). Why all the rearranging? We're adding a bunch of new products! We've already shared that we're making room for more needlepoint supplies, but y'all have asked for cross stitch and embroidery kits, too. The new kits will be near the back of the store (by the classroom). Plus, we've found a bunch of new project bags and other organizer doodads, so we've made room up front. Now we're just waiting on the yarn fairy to deliver everything. :)

All regular classes are currently on hold until we can safely seat up to 6 students in the classroom. We'll let y'all know when we can offer them again. Until then, we're offering most of our class material in private lessons.
