"Yarns That Will Bring You Joy"

Here at Mean Mothers Creations, we are delighted to bring you a fabulous range of yarns from all over the globe.  Suitable for all forms of yarn art, whether it's knitted blankets or crocheted children's toys, we're sure you'll find something you love.
We've got some very exciting news about the fire damage to our shop.  The landlord has confirmed that we DO NOT need a new roof over our unit and so our opening date won't be delayed too much longer.  We have been in the shop painting and the fit out is almost finished.  We have boxes upon boxes of stock (anyone would think we were opening a shop!!) and we just can't wait to open our doors. 
We have a few things left to arrange but will be announcing our opening date very soon.

Following the fire within the complex we do have a very limited amount of smoke damaged stock that we will be selling through the VIP group.  The amount of smoke damage varies through the damaged stock but we will be adding some handy hints to remove the smell on the sale page.  Please be aware that due to the nature of the sale all sales are final and no refunds for change of mind will be possible.
Mail delivery updates 
COVID-19 is still having very long and far reaching implications on the delivery of yarn both to us and from us.  The vast majority of our supplier countries are still struggling with uncontrolled levels of infection, lockdowns and social distancing resulting in reduced workforces and extended processing times.  On an Australian level the recent lockdown in Victoria has resulted in the closedown of the major mail sorting facility in Melbourne.  This has left the Auspost mail sorting facilities in Sydney completely swamped.  All mail is getting sorted and being delivered but there are some delays that we simply can't control.  We dispatch yarn as quickly as humanly possible and supply tracking information for all parcels we send.  Yet again we are asking for a little more patience and understanding over these increased delays to our new 'normal'.   

We are dispatching, on average, 130 parcels per week so yarn is definitely arriving and being sent, it's just that we're not able to work with the timelines that we'd prefer.
