Temporary Closure Jan 7-Jan 18
Updated: January 6, 2022
There is currently an unprecedented surge in Covid-19 infections due to the highly-transmissible Omicron variant. As observed by our Provincial Health Officer, the next two weeks will be critical in stemming its progress. In support of this, and to protect our customers and ourselves, we will be closing our physical store for the next two weeks.
We invite everyone to shop online at www.kismetquilts.com. Our first (and hopefully last) Covid Circuit-Breaker Sale is on now, and we will be adding new specials on a daily basis. Every order will receive a free gift, too! We will be available for curb-side pickup, and our free local delivery will be extended to our many customers in Parksville, Qualicum and the tri-village area.
If you would like to have quilts brought in for long-arming, we will be happy to pick them up and then follow up with a telephone consultation. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Quilt for Long-arming.” We are also very disappointed to say that the restart of quilting classes will have to be postponed until further notice.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and are looking forward to seeing you all in the store again when we re-open on Tuesday, January 18th. Not that you all need to be here at 10 o’clock that day. You don’t have to be here AS we re-open. Just saying that it will be nice to see people after we’re open again.

How can I make sure my homemade mask is effective?
To make sure your mask is effective, be sure to wear it properly following the BCCDC guidelines. Using Oeko-Tex Standard 100 fabrics for the outside and lining, and adding an interfacing between to create a three-layer mask is the most effective.
