Welcome to Around the Table Yarns!
Years ago, this shop started as a conversation about all the things we wished we could find in our local yarn shop: great yarn, obviously, but alsoa place to be with others who love the crafts of knitting or crocheting. We wanted a smiling welcome and good light and comfortable chairs and lessons (so we can try new things!) and help when we get stuck (so we can finish things!). Having in-store access to Ravelry and the ability to print patterns out in color means you are never without a pattern. Senior (65+), student, military and teacher discounts are just some of the ways we wanted to give back.
As we've grown in our first year of being open, we have been able to add amazing helpers in the store who are committed to the same goal of creating community in the shop.
So, we skipped the Pandemic Preparedness class at Small Business School and have been making adjustments as we think is best for our community. We offer support, community and virtual shopping through daily Zoom meeting times. We are answering questions by e-mail, voicemail, and social media. We have used our unexpected downtime to create a more robust website: all yarns, needles hooks, notions and more are available to purchase online 24 hours a day. If there is something we aren't offering and you need it. contact us and we will see what we can do.
