What’s new in the shop
From Interweave Press, the new issues of Interweave Knits and Cast-On magazines are in. Also, a great accessories pattern book for making things for our beloved pets. This is not the usual doggie-sweater book; it’s more fashionable, and so darling.
Although we are trying to sell all our inventory, I have ordered some things I know you will need. For example, I ordered more Ironstone Harmony for clogs, in the colors currently available. The shipment came in on Friday and was quite wiped out the next day. So, I have just placed a much larger order which should arrive by early next week in about ten colors for those of you who buy it by the armload.
Please note new policies, and thanks for understanding.
NEW SPECIAL ORDERS. We can no longer take special orders, with the following exceptions. Needles, notions (ball winders and swifts for gifts!) can be ordered, if you get right on it, but will not be eligible for discounts.
OLD SPECIAL ORDERS AND HOLDS. If we have ordered something special for you, and we have called you to let you know it’s in, you must come pick it up ASAP. If we are holding something for you, you have been called and asked to pick it up by this Saturday after Thanksgiving. Please understand that if we have been holding that for you, you can not purchase it at sale prices. That is only fair. If you can not physically get to the store by Saturday, call us with a card for payment, then pick it up at your leisure.
GIFT CERTIFICATES. We are no longer selling gift certificates, and are trying to reach those who are holding them. If you have given a gift certificate to someone, remind them we are closing and that they need to pop in to spend it.
RETURNS. If your sales receipt has a message on the bottom that reads “Thanks for shopping at City Knitting”, and it is not older than three months, you may make returns using our old policy. Last Tuesday we started a no returns policy. If your receipt reads “Thank you for your patronage. ALL SALES ARE NOW FINAL”, well, then, that sale is final.
Classes for 2010
A new batch of classes will be posted here soon on the classes page.
Folks accustomed (addicted) to our social time together are welcome to continue to gather. Between closing and the end of the year arrange your own get-togethers. After the New Year, we will resume Tuesday knitting time in my home very near the shop, from 2 - 9 PM. Please pick up an address card now available in the shop.
Folks accustomed to getting knitting help are certainly encouraged to patronize our Grand Rapids yarn shops. I am sorry I can’t offer our great staff to you, but if you need me, I am willing to help. I will have to charge for the service, selling a punch card good for $20 for an hour in 10-minute increments. This will be available after the New Year. You may want to pick up the same address card mentioned above. Come by the shop to grab one for your wallet to keep it handy.2188
