Important News from The Curious Crafter

Please read our Announcement from Holly and The Curious Crafter Team.

Dear Friends,

I hope this finds you safe and well.

I am sorry to announce that The Curious Crafter will be closing. Our tenure in St. Louis was short, but we felt such support and encouragement from the St. Louis fiber community. I am so very grateful for the friendships that blossomed around our table. You have welcomed me, supported the shop, and have made The Curious Crafter a very special place indeed.

In January of 2020, we were excited about a possible expansion for classroom space and social knitting and crafting. I was looking to expand our range of yarns, and our customer base was growing. We were still an emerging business at that time, but the future seemed bright. When the pandemic arrived, we were so fortunate we had an online platform already in place as we moved to online only sales. However, as time has passed, we have seen the reflection of the struggles our customers face in our own business. it is time to close our doors.

The Curious Crafter was special because of our amazing staff and because of you, our customers. Classes, social knitting/crafting, and working with such wonderful people, has been an incredible experience for which I am endlessly grateful.

Starting today, ALL YARN will be 15% off including our premade Knitting and Crochet Kits. We also have a SALE Category with deeper discounts. We will continue to use our online store to sell our inventory and fixtures. We will gradually increase the discount and add item categories. Curbside Pickup will be available as before. Some items, such as fixtures, will not be eligible for shipping. Details about picking up fixtures will be in the item description.

All sales are final, no returns or exchanges. No price adjustments. Customer service will be greatly limited. We are not able to wind yarn. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have a gift card, you can redeem it by making an appointment to place a phone order, as our gift cards cannot be applied to online orders. We will be happy to work with you to make your gift card purchase by phone. Please use your gift cards by August 31. Email [email protected] to make a phone appointment.

If you participated in our in-store loyalty program, Knitasha's Curious Cash, and you had earned a Curious Cash reward, you have already been contacted by email. Please refer to that email for information on how to apply your reward. Knitasha's Curious Cash is discontinued.

We will continue to communicate by this newsletter as well as Facebook and Instagram to keep you informed as we progress in the closeout sale.

Thank you and wishing you all the best,

Holly and The Curious Crafter Team
