Since my last post several stores have been forced to close their doors temporarily until this crisis is over. This has slowed down their shipping, but usually not stopped it entirely. My list is in no way comprehensive, just the stores that I have subscribed to their newsletter in the past.
Purl Soho is offering free shipping, I took advantage of this and purchased some colors of crewel wool to try since I am planning a Crewel Embroidery class in the near future at my public library. If I post a demonstration video, like I am planning, then I will add a link here.
Jimmy Beans Wool is offering free shipping through the end of March, not long now. I love the Wool Watcher deals for some really amazing specials. I took advantage of both, getting the print version of the 2015 Interweave Press Folk Knitting magazine, a $14 value, for $4. Not having to pay shipping just added to the extreme deal.
We are Knitters is offering free shipping on all of their products through March 28, so hurry on this one.
Leading Men Fiber Arts is offering free shipping on orders over $10 for the duration of the pandemic, I plan on taking advantage of this when I get my bills paid for the month and see what I have left over.
Abundant Yarn Online has free shipping for newsletter subscribers, that one expires in mid June so I suggest jumping on that bandwagon.
Harrisville Designs is offering a ton of free patterns, however no free shipping. My mom loved making potholders from loopers so I purchased their ‘pro’ sized loom and took advantage of the download of two free pattern books. Later on I will see if I have the dexterity to make some potholders.
Kraemer Textiles is having an automatic 20% off of orders of $20 or more and free shipping over $50. Not unlimited free shipping but still a generous offer for a small business.
Pig of the Month BBQ is offering free shipping if you are a carnivore.
In these troubling times, I highly recommend supporting small businesses where you are able.
