PLEASE READ:
TO ALL DES MOINES' STITCHING RESPONDERS:
Des Moines' deputy mayor has approached All Points Yarn requesting all the names of all of our customers and members of our stitching community who are making masks, creating donations for babies, the homeless, the military, and others. A plan is in the works to recognize our efforts and to dedicate a commemoration to thank us for all we do. If you would like to have your name, the names of your family and friends who stitch included, please e-mail allpointsyarn@aol.com with that information, your contact phone number, and attach any pictures of you and them working on their projects. Every contribution no matter how many or how small will be considered! With the e-mail the customers of Carriage Country Quilts in Des Moines are also invited! You don't have to be a resident of Des Moines, but you have to be a customer of All Points Yarn or Carriage Country Quilts to be included. Please act soon to be a part of this!

While you have been observing the Stay at Home directives of our governor, All Points Yarn has been offering several ways for you to continue to get the yarns and supplies you need, as well any technical help on your projects. 
You may call the shop at any time. The number 206-824-9276 is being forwarded to my personal cell phone, and from there we can discuss what you're looking for.

You can place an order by phone and the purchase will be delivered directly to your home. Also much like any food order.
You may wish to use Amazon.com and search out our Amazon shop: allpointsyarndotcom. From there the items you order will be shipped directly from here in the shop to your home through the magic of Amazon! This work goes on daily, so you shouldn't experience a great wait time from order to receipt.
Ultimately, we will be “closed” until we're all informed we can re-open and resume operations.
If you need yarns for baby-sitting, day care, home schooling work, as you create and improvise indoor/outdoor activities, we can put together “Care Packages” for your purchase of these supplies and products you use to tide you over. These will take first priority for the sake of our customers’ well-being as they take care of themselves and serve and support their family members, neighbors, and groups, both of the young and the more senior among us. 
Many of us realize the importance of handwork in times of stress, and this time is no different. Put together some yarn and needles and hooks, and create a safe, hygienic way to keep occupied.
If you would like some yarns and supplies for making donation items for charity, such as Seattle Children’s Hospital, please contact All Points Yarn immediately and we’ll get you set up with supplies. Inside, this need is your need to be productive, make good your down time, and outside, this need is the ability to make a difference in the lives of those who would benefit from your handiwork. 
Now is the time to get those hooks and sticks humming, and we are happy to get you what you need toward those efforts.
