JUST A FEW QUICK WORDS


Hi, everyone--

There hasn't been time to send out a proper December newsletter (it's been so busy!) but I want to draw your attention to a few things.

There's still time to participate in our annual ornament exchange!  Details below.


All events remain virtual; the best updates come from the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CloseKnitYarn).  Given that the state covid status changes weekly, shopping online is the smart and safe thing to do: (https://closeknityarncoop.com)!  Remember that we're offering curbside pickup and free local delivery!

Happy holidays to all, and please take this time to enjoy crafting at home!

Mary and the CKYC Board

 

ANNUAL ORNAMENT EXCHANGE!


It has been our custom to host a party and ornament exchange in the weeks before Christmas.  This year may be different, but we refuse to give up our ornament exchange, and we've been thinking hard about how to make it safe for everyone.

This year the exchange will take place VIRTUALLY over Zoom at our regular Thursday stitching group on December 17.  As always, ornaments must be handmade, but you don't have to make them yourself--CKYC will have options, as will Fuller Lodge and other local businesses.  In order to participate, you must leave an ornament at the store, clearly marked with your name, by 4:30 PM on the 17th.  You do not, however, have to be present on Zoom--Mary will draw ornaments on everyone's behalf, which she will then label for subsequent pickup.  (Some holiday treats may also find their way into the ornament packages this year . . .)

There's still time to make or buy an ornament and have fun with us!

NEW YARN!

We have a ton of new yarn . . . and no pictures.  There are new yarns from Universal (Alpaculence, solid colors of Angora Lace) and JulieSpins (Silky Kid), plus restocks on favorites like Uptown Worsted, Cascade Cherub Chunky and Cherub Chunky Wave, Cascade Heritage and Heritage Wave, and JulieSpins Silky.  You can find them all on the webstore--photographic status varies!

WEBSTORE REMINDERS


Just your periodic review of things that make life easier for you and our employees. 

If you're an existing customer, please use the email address we have on file for you to create an account in the webstore.  This will automatically link your webstore account to your in-store account, so all your purchases will be conveniently saved and tracked together!  This also enables us to keep track of your discounts and credits if you're a co-op subscriber.  (If you're not sure which email we have, just reach out to Mary and she'll look it up for you.)

Many pictures and descriptions are still missing--we're working on it!--but anything listed as in stock is available for purchase, including books, patterns, needles, hooks, and notions.  Certain items need to be purchased via a custom listing for technical reasons (such as buttons and gift certificates) but are absolutely available--just send us an email or Facebook message and we'll get it sorted.

Local delivery to Los Alamos and White Rock is still FREE; just select the option at checkout.  And of course we're always happy to take phone orders at (505) 662-1416.

 
VIRTUAL OPEN STITCHING GROUP!

We are still virtually stitching each week; please join us!  We are maintaining the regular schedule of every Thursday from 4:30-7:30 MDT and first and third Saturdays from 2-5 MDT.  We're using Zoom, a web-meeting platform that's simple and free.  If you're using a desktop computer, simply click the link below when it's time to start.  If you're using a tablet or smartphone, you'll need to install the "Zoom Cloud Meeting App" (which you can find in the app store or Google Play store).  You can even simply call in voice only to say hello with your cell phone or landline.
