Welcome to Thread & Paper Crafts Ltd, located in Salmon Arm, BC

As the COVID-19 situation here in Canada and across the world evolves, we want to keep you informed about what it means for our customers and their families, our staff and their families, and our community as a whole.
The health of customers and staff is a top priority, and we’ve taken precautionary measures to play our part in keeping our community safe.
With this in mind, we have decided to:

-Temporarily restrict our hours to 10-4, Mon-Friday, starting on Mar 23 until further notice and limit the number of customers in the store to 10 at a time – we have set this limit BUT we have not have more than 6 people in the store, and being a 5000 sq foot store, that allows plenty of room to keep 6 feet between you and others

-Enhance all in store cleaning processes, along with additional store staff and shopping protective measures. We have 2 sinks in the store that are open to customers for hand washing.

-All Thread & Paper organized classes are on hold, we will reschedule as soon as we have the “go ahead” – and won’t that be a GLORIOUS time for all of us!

-We have created an online store, while listing are limited there will be someone at the store 10:00-4:00 Monday to Saturday to take phone/email orders, we can text or email pictures, to figure out what you’d like – even if its not listed on our website.

-We now offer free delivery to your door, daily, within Salmon Arm. Surrounding areas (blind bay, Sicamous, etc) will be taken case by case. $10 flat rate shipping for everywhere else.
-please keep 6 feet away from everyone while in the store
We will continue to keep you up to date with any related changes (because they are always happening) on our website threadandpaper.com as well on our Facebook page. Feel free to contact us via: email at info@threadandpaper.com, leave a phone message at 250 832-3937, or direct message us through FB. We will respond back ASAP

We are doing our best to move forward with thoughtful consideration, supporting you, our local community. We will get through this situation by working together.
