Cowgirl Yarn is excited to participate in the 11th annual yarn crawl in a safe and different way. Our hours will be Tuesday – Friday 10:30am – 6:00pm and Saturday 10:00am – 5:00pm. We will also be open Sunday, Aug 9, 1:00pm – 4:00pm Note: This is the only Sunday Cowgirl Yarn is open – plan accordingly.
All are welcome at Cowgirl Yarn. We are asking anyone who enters to wear a face covering, and use the hand sanitizer station that is located by the front door. We are currently limiting the number of customers to five at a time. If we are at capacity, we have comfy chairs for you to wait in, as well as a lovely, shaded outdoor courtyard. If your group is larger than five, please give us a call, so we can make accommodations for you.
We are winding yarn but if it is multiple skeins we may ask for you to explore our great downtown while your yarn is being wound. There are many unique shops, boutiques, and dining options in the blocks surrounding our store and we’re happy to make suggestions. We will also be offering curbside pickup and ‘meet us at the front door’ shopping experiences.
During your visit, make sure to scan the QR code for your virtual passport. We will have a print-out available so you can do this quickly, safely, and easily. The QR code will ensure that you’re entered to win a $50.00 Gift Certificate to Cowgirl Yarn and also to make you eligible to win one of the grand prizes after you’ve visited all six shops that are participating in the Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl.
