Curb-side Pick-up

Curb-side Pick-up:
*Update*: As our system is in compliance with Alberta's new regulations regarding non-essential businesses, we will continue with our curb-side pickup and mail order as before.

(It's working!)

Our new way of shopping is working well. We are answering telephones (when we are here from 11-3pm Tuesday to Saturday), picking up messages and answering emails. Your prepaid orders are placed on the chair by our door when you arrive and call us on your cell phone. We have even held yarn colours  and patterns up to the window :). We hope you all enjoy your projects and stay safe as we practice physical (and yarn) distancing.
(If you receive a message during operating hours, we are on the phone with another customer. Either leave us a message or email us at ginabrowns @ We are checking our email as often as possible)
Also at this time, we are not taking any returns or exchanges. We will extend our return policy so exchanges/store credits can be made after we can re-open to the public.

For those of you looking for some knitting help, we recommend the following online sources:

To our friends and valued customers,

Due to the Covid-19 health crisis, and for the safety of both our staff and our customers, we have decided that beginning Thursday March 19 we will be operating our sales through telephone mail order and storefront in car pickup only. This means that for the time being, there will be no in person shopping and all classes will be suspended until further notice.

If you would like to place an order and arrange for storefront in car pickup or mail order, you can call and leave us a message at 403 255 2200  or email us with a detailed request (and a phone number we can reach you at for payment and to discuss your order) at We will try our best to respond to and fulfill requests in a timely fashion. We will be on site fulfilling orders and meeting people for arranged in car pick-ups for limited hours from 11 until 3 pm Tuesday to Saturday or by pre arranged appointment, so it is important to contact us first before coming to the store.

We realize that in these stressful times, having knitting and crochet projects are a great comfort to those of us who love fibre arts and we will do our best to continue to support you while keeping everyone's health and safety a top priority.

We would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to all our customers who have shown us and other local small businesses so much support. We will all get through this together.
