Happenings

The governor has presented a “Safer At Home” policy for Colorado and SW Farm to Yarn Collective is planning to slowly re-open our doors beginning May 5. For starters we will be open from 10am – 2pm on Tuesdays and Fridays, and will gradually expand our hours as conditions permit and needs warrant.  Curbside pickup is an option if you know what you want.  “Shop by appointment” is also an option for our members.  Contact us via email swfarm2yarn@gmail.com to make an appointment.

We have developed a business re-opening plan that will protect our staff and our customers.  This issue of our newsletter will present our re-opening plan.  Though it is lengthy, we hope you will read it carefully before you resume shopping.  We take your health and ours very seriously.  We are also posting this information on our website.
