As recent concerns about the Coronavirus grow, we want our customers and staff to continue to feel safe at The Knitter‘s Edge. We have therefore implemented the following:
In the classrooms, we disinfect all tables and chair backs daily.
We disinfect commonly touched areas frequently throughout the day.
Soap and water for hand washing is available in both the bathroom and the kitchen area- no need to wait. We suggest you wash up as soon as you come in, and again before you leave.
We are here regular store hours, fully staffed and ready to assist you in your project needs. We want you to feel safe, so please consider the following if you worry about venturing out:
We fill orders over the phone, with daily shipping by USPS. Through the end of March (March 13-31) we are offering FREE Shipping on all orders over $50.
We want to ensure that you have a project handy to keep your hands busy and your mind calm.
If you are local, you can call in your order, pay by credit card; then let us know when you are in the parking lot. We will run your order out to your car- rain or shine. Pop the trunk and we can load you up- no contact.
Having pattern or project problems? Please try calling or emailing the shop. We can often help your through a knitting or crochet emergency over the phone, or in writing.
Remember this situation is changing quickly these days. Watch our newsletter and Facebook page for updates.
