4/28/20 – Shop Updates:
Dear Skein customers,
During our break the last few weeks, we had a chance to gather ourselves, regroup and rethink how we’ll proceed as a small business in these uncertain times. We’re back now (virtually) and are excited to bring in new yarns and new products to share with you all! While the “Safe-At-Home” order is still in place, we will continue with our virtual shopping program to accommodate all your yarn needs. Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and your continued support.
How to Virtual Shop at SKEIN
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with these info:
- Detailed descriptions of what you’re planning on making: Pattern (incl. photo or link), yarn type (weight & fiber contents) & colors (few options are helpful);
- Date & Time you’d be available for video appointment (FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom);
- Phone number to reach you at, esp. if using FaceTime or Skype
During our video meeting, we will present you with a wide range of options for you to choose from. Once you’ve decided to make a purchase, please have your credit card and ID ready to complete the transaction. At this time, all sales are final.
How to Get Your Yarn
We’re now offering No-Contact Pick-up, Delivery (within 5 miles), or Shipping (with additional fees).
For No-Contact Pick-Up: Let us know about when you’d be coming. When you arrive, simply park in our small parking lot behind the shop and call us from your car. We’ll put your order right outside the back door and you may retrieve it AFTER we close our door.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 626-577-2035 or email us at email@example.com. Even though you can’t physically be here with us, we strive to give you the same attention and service as you’d get if you were here. Hope to see you all soon! (Virtually, that is.)
P.S. Be sure to connect with us on your favorite social media platform! We’ll definitely continue to post about all things yarn, knitting/crocheting inspo, fun projects, and the latest shop news!
