Just a reminder…

Just a reminder… t w i s t will be closed for the next few weeks…

.

I’ll be spending time creating and sourcing new yarns for the shop ~
and hand dyeing special orders so they can be delivered on time!

.

My sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause…
I am continuing my quest to find the magical balance between
hand dyeing yarns for t w i s t + having the shop open.

.

While the shop is closed,
you can order through our store online: twistYARNS.com
Online orders will be shipped within 24-48 hours.  

All custom dyed t w i s t Yarn orders will be shipped within the time frame promised.  

.

If you would like to place a special order or want an update on an existing order, please email me: cathy@twistyarns.com
 .

.

Thank you for being part of our crafting community @ t w i s t …
we would not be here without you!

.

I look forward to hearing from you and/or seeing you when the shop re-opens in a few weeks!
