Ordering from Small Bobbins during COVID-19

As of May 16, 2020, this blog post will no longer be updated! Please check the Ordering & Delivery page for the most current and accurate information, or email Kirstin if you have any questions about shipping!

Hey friends! I’m writing this purely for the sake of practicalities during these weird times. Personally, my first priority for everybody in the world is to be as safe and well as possible (physically and mentally!). For me, I’m finding it difficult to concentrate on work (especially with my two kids at home), but I know many people have found solace and positive distraction in sewing, and therefore may need some extra supplies.

Small Bobbins is run from my house, so if you would like to place an order, I am able to pack it up without issue. Everybody in my house is currently well and hasn’t had exposure (that we know of) to anybody with the virus. So that’s a plus!

As of May 12, 2020, we can ship to the EU, plus the US, Canada, Russia, Brazil, and China. If you get to checkout and are unable to select your country, it means that it’s not possible to ship to you until after the quarantine measures have lifted. Please email me if you have any questions about this!

*”Europe” means the following to bpost: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Norway. We can also ship to the United States, Canada, Russia, Brazil, and China.

Belgium (where I live) has currently issued mandatory guidelines that we’re not supposed to leave the house except for a short list of essential places, and this does include going to the post office. That being said, I will be reducing trips to the post office to once per week, so shipping times will likely be a bit longer. And, since we’ve been advised to avoid all non-essential travel, local pick-up is temporarily unavailable.

Digital products are, of course, always available!

So, from the whole Small Bobbins team (aka, me and Liesje), we hope you’re staying well!! If you would happen to have any questions or concerns about a potential order, please feel free to reach out to me directly at hello[at]smallbobbins[dot]com.
