With everything going on, Wolseley Wool will be closing our doors for in-person shopping, classes and drop in sessions for the near future, effective immediately. We thank you so much for all of your support and hope that you think of us if you’re in need of yarn – we will be available for pick up and delivery during this time. We love our community so much and want to do what we can to keep everyone safe.
We will be available Monday through Saturday from 10-5 for phone or email orders as well as curb side pick up at the store. You can reach us at (204) 772-5648 or [email protected] In the next few days we will also have a website up full of kits, gift cards and more to shop from the comfort of your home with options for local delivery – give us a call and we’ll work something out. Please think of us if you are in need of yarn as a small local business like ours depends on your support to reopen our doors once things calm down. We can still help you pick the perfect yarn for a project via phone or email or send you photos of yarn.
The door will be locked so if you are picking up something we ask that you phone ahead with what you are planning to pick up so we can get it together for you. If you need help with a project we ask that you not come in but you can email or phone us and we will do what we can to help you. If you’d like your yarn to be wound, please let us know before you come to pick it up as you will not be able to come in to wind it.
All in-session classes are postponed, effective immediately. If you are currently in a class we will be in touch in the near future regarding rescheduling or cancellations. All social gatherings such as Knit Night have also been cancelled. Other than to pick up orders our doors are closed to keep foot traffic to a minimum and everyone safe.
We hope that by taking these measures now now we will help reduce the impact and duration of this difficult time.
We are making a plan regarding upcoming classes as well as the retreat and ask for your patience while we work it out. We will update you as soon as we know anything.
We will be sending out our regular weekly newsletters to keep you updated – this week is going to have a fun feature on crafts to do with yarn as well as some of our favourite online resources for knitting help so keep an eye out for that. If there’s anything you’d find helpful to see from us we’d love to hear it.
Here at Wolseley Wool we will miss our wonderful fibre community and invite you to join us on Facebook or Instagram where we will be sharing what we’re working on and you can too! Make sure to tag us #wolseleywool on Instagram so we can see all of the beautiful things you’re working on. You can also reach us via email. Make sure to check up on each other too, it’s important to check in with friends and family, especially those on their own. Check in with your favourite local businesses to see how you can support them. Send each other funny memes, favourite recipes, links to new cute patterns and photos of your pets trying to claim your WIPs as their new bed. We’ve got this.
Stay safe everyone!
