Virtual Appts 5/20 and 5/21

Hi Friends! We are offering more virtual appointments this Wednesday and Thursday. We are hoping this is our last week of total closure. Keep your masks on and your fingers crossed. We’ll be in the shop cleaning and rearranging this week to get ready for our potential reopening on Tuesday, May 26th. We can’t wait to have you back.

When we reopen, we are going to have a Face-Coverings-Mandatory policy. We consider this a public safety issue and not a political one. Thank you for understanding.

We’ll call you for your appointment, so sit tight and if we’re a few minutes late, we’re sorry. Love you all!

Virtual Appointments 5/13 and 5/14

Hi Friends! Another week of Virtual Shopping Appointments at Harmony! We’ve just gotten in some amazing Robert Kaufman fabrics, and we have lots of fabulous yarns and gifts, too.

We are hoping we’ll be back in the shop, with limited store hours, as early as next week. We are tracking the Utah County COVID-19 cases, and hope that we see a downturn in the coming weeks. When we reopen, we will require all shoppers to wear masks, and we will keep occupancy to a maximum of a few people so we can keep social distancing mandates. (Since we’re a small shop, 6 feet of separation gets a little bit tricky with more than a few people.)

Thanks for supporting us as we’ve had to pivot and try this new method. We are sooooo ready to be able to see you and serve you in person. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that it’s sooner than later.

In the meantime, sign up for one of our Virtual Appointments. Click on the link below to be taken to the schedule. Thanks!

Harmony Virtual Shopping 5/6 and 5/7

We’re back at it again! We’d love to help you pick out a Mother’s Day present, Teacher Appreciation gift, new sewing or knitting project, or a little pick-me-up since these Corona Virus days are stretching on and on and on.

We have decided to keep our shop closed to shoppers for the time being. We are monitoring the cases in Utah County and once we feel more confident that we can provide a safe shopping experience, we’ll be back in the shop with open arms. (Don’t worry, we will still just give you a virtual hug).

Wow, friends! This has been a wild ride for all of us. We hope this message finds you healthy, cozy, and having minimal mental break-downs. We have decided to have Virtual Shopping Appointments, conducted through FaceTime (for iPhone users) and Skype (for non-iPhone users).

Appointments are 10 minutes each, which will give us time to shop the store with you, ring up your purchases, and get everything ready for pick-up (or shipping! Yes, we’ll ship to you!! This is a first!)  Appointments and Curbside Pickup will be available during the hours of 11:00-2:00 on Wednesday, April 8, through Friday, April 10.  You can pick up your purchases any time between those hours.

We take the safety of our workers and our customers very seriously. We will be wearing masks and gloves as we prepare your packages and they will be delivered to your car. For PICK-UP: Drive up to the curb on Center Street and call the shop at 801-615-0268. Tell us what your car looks like and we’ll run your goodies out to you.
