We want to thank all of you who have continued to shop with us over the last few days and weeks.
With the recent developments and recommendations about how to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, along with Governor Brown asking all businesses to assess their practices (see the statement below), I have decided to close Fiber Rhythm in-person-retail for four weeks. We are not an essential business—although I do feel that fiber work reduces stress- and feel it is important that we do what we can to reduce the likelihood of this spreading any faster.
A few things to note:
- Our employees still have jobs.
- We will focus our time on working in the studio, improving our online store.and fulfilling the online orders
- Local customers can order online for delivery via USPS. (We are evaluating how we would work with the Pick Up in Store model)
- Remote customers, this is business as usual
- All classes and workshops have been cancelled and meetups are also cancelled for the duration.
- Look for us on instagram, pinterest and facebook
We will continue to re-assess and evaluate our options as time goes on.
Thanks for your understanding, and please let me know if you have any questions.

Governor Brown announces additional measures to slow the spread of COVID-19
Governor Kate Brown today announced new measures to flatten the curve of coronavirus transmission in Oregon. The new orders on social distancing measures are effective tomorrow, March 17, for at least four weeks, and they include:
A statewide cancelation of all events and gatherings larger than 25 people — exempting essential locations like workplaces, grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail stores. It’s additionally recommended that Oregonians avoid gatherings of 10 people or more.
Restaurants, bars, and other establishments may not offer food or beverages for on-site consumption; they are restricted to carry-out and delivery only.
Food service at health care facilities, workplaces, and other essential facilities will continue.
All other businesses are urged to assess their practices, implement strong social distancing measures, and close their doors temporarily if they cannot put the new guidance in place.
The Governor has also established a Coronavirus Economic Advisory Council to examine ways to mitigate the impacts of new social distancing measures and anything else that adversely affects Oregon’s economy.
