Needlers' Retreat 2020 - Cancelled

Here it is July, and I have been thinking hard about November. Many of us in Ontario are set to start Stage 3 of our opening up plan. And while a maximum of 50 masked people indoors with social distancing seems like a huge opening up of our world, it is still a long way away from 70 people crammed into the bar or even the dining room at The Glen House.

So, much as I hate to say this, I think it is the right thing to cancel this year's retreat. I have, optimistically, booked Nov 5-7, 2021 for next year's Needlers' Retreat. Registration won't happen before the spring of 2021, provided we feel we can safely host a retreat next year.

Free Local Shipping and Free Shipping Over $125

We can't have people in, so we are offering free local shipping anywhere within a 100km radius of us.  The only conditions are as follows:

- deliveries are as contactless as possible (pay on the website, I’ll deliver your parcel with minimal contact between us)
- someone must be home to receive the parcel or there must be a safe (agreed on) place to leave the parcel so it is not damaged by weather or theft

I appreciate that some customers may prefer to have their parcel delivered by Canada Post so that, if there is no one home, the parcel can be left at a local Post Office for pickup at a later and more convenient time. Pick the shipping option that works best for you.

Note also that we will continue to provide free shipping on any Canadian order (local or not) over $125 (before tax).
