With every sale, we have to have some fine print details to make sure things go smoothly. Here's the scoop on some questions you might have:

Holds? Sorry, we can't hold or reserve any product(s). If it's on the online store, it's up for anyone to purchase.

Advance Order? To be fair, we cannot sell yarns to you at sale prices before they are scheduled to go on sale. See "telephone order" below for a way to get in on the sale without being online.

Don't like to use a credit card online? No problem. Call in to the shop and purchase a gift card over the phone or stop by and we'll sell one to you "curbside". You can use your gift card online. Easy Peasy!

Telephone Order? Yes, you can purchase sale yarns over the phone. We will be very busy processing online orders on the day that the yarns go on sale, but as soon as we've fulfilled all the online orders and we get a break, we'd be happy to help you over the phone. Leave a message on our main line: 780-477-9276 and we'll call you back in the order your call was received. It will be very helpful if you have a list ready. Keep in mind that we cannot sell yarns at sale prices ahead of their sale date.

Hold for one shipment? During the Canada Day Sale our shipper (that's right, there's just one) will be very busy! Orders will be picked, packed and mailed out in the order they come in. If you'd like us to hold off on shipping, please send an email to as soon as you've placed your order. We will do our best to keep it to one side until you're ready.

Save on shipping rates? We're keeping our subsidized shipping rates in place during the sale! In addition to great discounts, you can also get discounted shipping. However, if you place more than one order and we are able to ship them together, we will not be able to refund the shipping charged on one or more of your orders, even if together, the sum of the orders would qualify for a better shipping rate. Rather, try to fill your cart with an extra ball if you can, to make the most of our shipping discount.

River City Yarns helps you save on shipping!

  • 25% off shipping when your order is $50 or more;
  • 50% off shipping when your order is $100 or more;
