Important COVID-19 Information

As of Saturday, May 15, restrictions continue to be lifted in Virginia.  We understand that everyone is not fully vaccinated, and the health of all of our customers is important to us.  Dances With Wool will now operate under the following recommendations:

  • We will continue to monitor number of people in the shop.  Because of our small space, we will use our judgment to limit the number of people in the space at one time.
  • Customers are recommended to wear masks while shopping (although not required if fully vaccinated)
  • Hand sanitizer is available in abundance all over the store. Please use it frequently!
  • A thorough cleaning and disinfection of frequently contacted surfaces will be performed regularly

In addition:

  • We will continue to be available by phone during the business hours of 11-5. Please call us if you need something or have any questions at 804-594-5849. If you call us with a request to shop virtually we can accommodate you, wind your yarn, and deliver a package to your car.
  • Virtual shopping appointments continue to be available. Click here.
  • The Evenstar KAL support sessions will be held only on Zoom. These meetings will follow the schedule found on our website, but we will send out reminders before.
  • Classes will be held virtually until the fall session.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and well!
