The Knitting & Stitching Show champions creativity with hundreds of workshops, demonstrations and interactive features on offer as well as over 300 exhibitors, including us, selling specialist craft supplies.
I hope you're all keeping safe and well and starting to adjust to the latest measures regarding Covid-19 brought in by the UK government on Monday 23rd March to protect our NHS and the more vulnerable members of our society.
I’ve had several phone calls and emails from customers today asking if we will still be sending out orders. Those that I spoke to seemed really relieved that they’d still be able to buy fabric etc for some much needed sewing projects in these difficult times.
Under the new regulations online businesses are still allowed to take orders and ship them. I’m lucky in that I don’t need to travel to work as I run my small business from the studio at the end of our garden and am able to drop parcels off safely for delivery at our local post office with a contactless hand-over.
However, to minimise the impact we have on their resources, we have decided that, at the moment, we will not send orders out every day but restrict parcel drops to twice a week. I plan to tie these drop offs in with my daily walk for exercise with our girl. We will be reviewing how we operate and checking government updates daily and will let you know if anythng changes.
Please note that unfortunately we cannot offer an express delivery service at this time and international orders may well take longer to arrive.
Keep safe everyone,
