|Update May 16: Wow, what a crazy 8 weeks it's been. |
At this time we are working with Worksafe BC guidelines to decide on the safest way for us to reopen the store. This has been made harder by our small retail space that makes social distancing difficult. I appreciate everyone's patience and we look forward to being able to welcome you into the store as soon as it is safe to do so. Starting next week, we are able to take appointments for machine sales only. (masks required)
We continue to offer curbside pick-up and shipping.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has placed an order and just reached out to say "Hi" over the past eight weeks. Quilty friends are the best!
Effective Tuesday, March 17th (Happy Wedding Anniversary to me) our Stitch and Bobbin retail location will be closed until further notice. We have agonized over this decision all weekend but after the recent recommendation for Canadians to stay home and help "flatten the curve" we feel it is in the best interest of our community. Many of our customers are visitors from out of town and many of our local shoppers are part of the more at risk group. I would feel very responsible if someone came into contact while shopping in our store. While it is a very scary situation for a small business to limit their foot traffic, we feel it is necessary to practice more aggressive distancing practices. We also understand that you are also responsible citizens and will be spending your time at home as well. That means it is a great time to sew! I think this situation is going to produce some amazing projects!! We would love to see what you are working on by sharing it in our facebook group:Stitch & Bobbin: Sew and Tell group.
These are the things we are offering to help all of us get through this unprecedented situation:
