    Fabriclands are closed. Not sure if sister company Fabricville is. I didn't check to see if can still order on-line.

    Received an e-mail from a LQS that it would be appointment only and will still take machines for repair/maintenance.

    Yes; our governor (Lamont of Connecticut) has closed all "non-essential" businesses for an undetermined period of time. How they think liquor stores are "essential" but quilt shops are not will ever remain a mystery to me. 🙄

    Of the two shops I frequent, one has reduced hours and the other has closed until this passes.

    I got emails from eight in the area I've been to....all closed, with curbside service available. Even Quality Sewing (a large store that sells machines and vacuums, is closed with curbside pickup available. MM is going by another sewing store in the morning to get a part for me that has come in. Other than that, I am staying home!

    I got an email today. There are four stores across the islands. They are staying open but cancelling classes. Encouraging us to go to their website and pick up at store or they will ship free for orders over $50. And shop your stash. I thought that was cute. They also said they were going to continually be wiping everything down.These stores are really big, so it wouldn't be hard to keep a distance.

    If my machine gets caught up in a lock down, I have the managers email. Maybe she will open up for me to grab it.I'm just kidding. I will be patient smilie ha.gif

    Yes, the shop I go to on Fridays just sent out an email that they'll be closed til April 1-at least. One yarn shop is also closed, one is not but asks that people stay home if they aren’t feeling 100%. Both of my knitting groups are stopping. Many of the people I knit and sew with are in the age bracket that could be affected. I'd rather be safe than sorry. But...I will definitely miss my social interactions with people other than family.

    Got an email this am from one shop that they are reducing hours but will still accept online orders and quilts to be quilted. It's not one I frequent much but I have friends that do.

    Yes.....the Vermont Shop Hop is postponed and the few LQS that the state has is not open. It is being suggested you call first before making the long trip to a quilt store.

    Don't know about the LQS, but the Gov. of Massachusetts just closed all public schools and banned all public gatherings of more than 50 people, including restaurants, bars, gyms, theatres, faith-based gatherings and sporting events.

    I did get 1 emails from one of 9-10 LQS within an hour, business as usual but more cleaning and asking customers who are not feeling well to postpone their visit. I really have no need to go to store now, but the enticement of a huge sale on Saturday was awfully tempting.

    No news of LQS closing here or changing hours. One posted that they were still doing shop hop as planned, because they rarely have close to 50 patrons in the store. When I stopped in yesterday, it appeared to be a standard size crowd.
