Frequently Asked Questions


Returns


Can I return a defective needle or hook?
Absolutely! Blizzard Yarn and Fiber understands that as fiber artist our tools are an investment and we guarantee that your tools will be free from defects. If a needle or hook you have purchased from us ends up being defective, we will gladly replace it with an identical item.

I am stuck on a project, can I come to you for help?
You are always welcome to come in and ask us questions, and we will happily answer them if time and customer traffic allows. If we do not have a simple answer or your problem is more in depth, we will either refer you to our Knitting 911 class every Tuesday from 1-2 pm, or to what our knowledge will be the best resource for help with your project. 

What is your return policy?
Yarn is gladly returned within 90 days with a receipt in it's original condition. 

All refunds will be issued in the form of a store gift card. 

Trunk show items are not eligible for returns

Needles, hooks, tools, books, clearance items, and magazines are not returnable. 

Any defective needles, hooks, or cables will be replaced with an identical item. 



Will you wind my yarn into a ball for me?
We will gladly wind all yarn purchased from Blizzard Yarn and Fiber, though during trunk shows, sales, or high traffic days we will be unable to wind the yarn, but you are welcome to bring them back during your next visit and we will happily wind them for you.

For yarns purchased elsewhere, we would hate to accidentally tangle something we can't replace, so we will not wind those for you. However, we do have a swift and a ball winder available as a community resource and will happily give you a quick lesson on how to wind your yarn. 

Can I come work on my project at Blizzard Yarn and Fiber?

ABSOLUTELY!!! 
If we are open our chairs are open and you are welcome to come knit, spin, crochet, or really most anything in our community space. On trunk show days we may have reduced seating capacity. Our classroom space is available during many hours, but not during classes, meetings, or other scheduled activities. 

A note on projects, we love it when you create with items you bought from us and are excited to see you be a part of our community, regardless of where your supplies are purchased.

We have a kitchen that has a coffee pot that is always on, with a tap for hot water for tea as well as a selection of teas. You are more than welcome to grab a mug from our cupboard or use one of our disposable cups. Is the coffee low? Would you like decaf? We will gladly brew some up for you as soon as we have a moment. Cold filtered water is available in our fridge and we have glasses on the table for you to use. Oh... did you notice the snacks on the table? Those lovely jars full of snacks are brought in by us and our generous community, if it's on the table, you are more than welcome to snack on it!
