Hello Knitter Friends,
We just wanted to touch base and give you the latest MAKS news.
With the upcoming snow conditions in the Indianapolis area, it’s a great time to remind everyone, to give the store a call if there is incoming bad weather BEFORE you head out. Keeping staff and customers safe is our main goal, and that may include having to close for the day or close earlier than our posted hours. We will try and provide updates on social media, but we reserve the right to adjust store hours on the fly based on safety and current weather conditions. The good news is, you don’t even have to leave your slippers to shop with MAKS, as the online store is here for you 24/7.
Tomorrow, we will be sending out a press release for the upcoming Yarn Crawl. It will be very different this time around as there are no passports needed to participate. As part of the crawl, MAKS will be giving away a gift basket of knitty goodness. To participate you just have to shop during the yarn crawl, either at the store or online. Each purchase will get you one entry into the drawing. Please see the press release tomorrow for the main event details.
One thing that did not change for the yarn crawl is some extremely yummy yarn that was specially prepared for the crawl. Shhhh, no spoilers. Pre-orders will begin this Friday at 12:01 a.m. We’ll send out a notice with pictures at that time and the online store will have the inventory loaded as well waiting for your purchase. Limited quantities available…its AAAAAAHHHHmazing.
We have six of our annual subscriptions left for purchase if anyone is interested. (This is bad Dru talking now) I’ve had some issues getting the online coupons released but will have that taken care of shortly.
We have two exciting events coming soon. February 26-March 13th we will be having an in-house trunk show for Brediculous Yarns. We’ll have a special page set up at the online store for online purchases. I’ll be following up with a list before the event to show you all the extra tasty yarn goodness that Brea has created for us.
Also coming in April will be a Trunk show for Wabash Woolen Works, and we’ll provide more information as we get closer to the event.
One last thing, we appreciate your patience during the last year with our truncated business hours. We will be continuing them in the meantime, looking forward to going back to full service this May based on current conditions.
Happy Valentines Day!
Stay safe knit friends!
