We will continue to practice all CDC recommendations, including:
Limiting the number of customers in the shop: We will allow 2-3 customers at a time. If you are uncomfortable shopping with another customer, please let us know when you set up your appointment and she will schedule you individual time accordingly.
Limiting Family Members: Our Creative Fires family (Bev, Kerri and the kids) are working from home for now most days. We ask that you also do not bring other family members with you to further limit the number of people in the shop. If you are working on a project for a specific person and they want to join you, they are welcome, but please let us know when you schedule your appointment.
Health Monitoring: We are checking our temperatures every morning before coming in. We ask that you please do the same before leaving your home. If you are coughing or sneezing for any reason, please reschedule your appointment.
Masking: We know they are uncomfortable, but we ask that you please wear a mask to the shop. Kathryn and Kerri will wear theirs as well.
Cleaning/Sanitizing: We are and sanitizing surfaces and washing/sanitizing our hands frequently throughout the day.
Physical Distancing: Please keep 6' (for us, it's easier to visualize 2 yards) between yourself and anyone else in the shop, including us. This is the most difficult protocol to tackle for all of us, and not because there isn't enough physical space in the shop. We are so excited to see you, to catch up and hear how you and your loved ones are doing, and what you've been up to over the past two months. We naturally gravitate to one another as we chat about those things and discuss fabric choices and projects. It feels awkward and uncomfortable to back away from each other. BUT, keeping our distance - as emotionally challenging and uncomfortable as it can be - is vital to all of our health for the foreseeable future. Please do not take it personally if Kathryn or Kerri step away. Everything we are doing, particularly physical distancing, is out of respect for you, your health, and the health of those you love. She will show you the same understanding as we all navigate our way through the shop 2 yards apart.
Let's all take a moment to acknowledge and grieve this loss of normalcy.
OK, now it's time to celebrate that we can safely be together sharing our love of all things sewing/quilting/fabric!
Call us at 937-327-9420 to schedule your appointment! If Kathryn doesn't answer, please leave a message and be patient as she is running the shop by herself. I (Kerri) desperately wish I could be there to help her and all of you, but for now, we have decided it is best for Audrey, Levi and I to stay home during the week. To help Kathryn's work load, if you have a specific question that I could answer from home, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We understand that some of our customers are not ready or able to make a trip out to the shop, so we will continue to offer online and phone orders with options for direct shipping or curbside pickup.
We are not offering classes until further notice. We will continue to update our plans to fully re-open as we know them.
We feel incredibly blessed to have your support throughout this trying time.

Please ensure your printer makes the pattern the appropriate size before making any masks. There was an amendment to place the elastic 3" apart, not 2".
