Keeping Things Cozy
Like many other local businesses, we've been fielding questions about whether or not Cozy will remain open during the next few weeks, given the current health concerns in our city, the state, and the world. While we wish we could be more prescient, safety recommendations are changing on a daily basis; although we do try to follow the best advice for today, we can't always know what the best practices will be for tomorrow.
Right now, we will continue to stay open during normal spring hours, and classes will be held as scheduled, as class size is limited to small groups. Sit-and-Stitch sessions will continue as scheduled, too, however we ask that if you are not feeling your best (beyond the usual allergies of early spring), please come request help at a quieter time in the shop, or share your latest projects online in our Ravelry group, rather than in person. We are a close-knit community and while we would like to stay close, we also want to keep all our members healthy.
When you do need yarn and tools, please feel assured that we are working hard to keep Cozy germ-free: We are wiping down the tables, counter, door handles, and register with antibacterial wipes multiple times a day; hand soap is available and plentiful at both sinks; and the hand-sanitizer pump at the table is open to all. If you would rather stay solo, but still need that one pop of green yarn or US H hook, you can always give us a call and we can bring your purchases out front for curbside pickup.
As always, we still love to see your projects and hear your latest stitch stories, so even if you are home, please keep the conversations and show-and-tell going in our Ravelry group.
We will keep you updated as things--as they often do--change. For now, stay well and stitch on!
