COVID-19: How Avenue Yarns is Moving Forward
In accordance with Contra Costa County's recently issued Shelter in Place order, Avenue Yarns' storefront will be closed until further notice. This means we will not be holding Knit Labs or Social Knitting for the time being and all classes are postponed. If you purchased a class that was to take place between now and April 7, expect an email in the coming days that will re-assess your options for refunding or rescheduling your class. We plan to open again as soon as we are safely able to.
Until we can resume in-person operation, our online store will be our only business outlet. We are very proud of the community we have managed to foster in our 4 years of operation, and as such we will miss seeing your faces these coming weeks. The following actions are being taken to improve your online shopping experience:
-For the time being, Avenue Yarns is providing free shipping to orders within the U.S.
-We have introduced Avenue Yarns Gift Cards into our online inventory. These can be found under Shop > Gift Cards.
-As always, we are working on getting as much of our store inventory online as possible. The Shelter In Place order has only expedited this process. Our store inventory is being updated regularly, so be sure to check back in.
-We knitters and crocheters know better than anyone how solitary our crafting can be. For many of us, knitting and crocheting is a great way to sit with ourselves and get away from it all, stitch by stitch. This isolated meditation can turn lonely once it becomes less voluntary. We hope you will share your creations with us on Instagram using the tag: #togetherontheavenue . This way we can nurture some online community until we can meet again.
Thank you endlessly for your support. Avenue Yarns' staff wishes you and your loved ones the utmost health in the coming weeks.
