Today on the Yarn Thing Podcast: Andrea from KnitCrate!
As a new feature of the shownotes, a player will be embedded at the beginning of each post that will play that specific episode. All you have to do is hit play!
After the player, the shownotes will be as usual. So here we go!
Join us as Marly talks with Andrea about how she and her husband started KnitCrate, the types of crates, what you get in the crates, and how you can get started with your own subscription.
Andrea and her husband, Joe, started the KnitCrate subscription service after Hurricane Sandy last year when he found her knitting at the table and several delayed subscription boxes arrived. When he discovered that, while some of them were fiber related, none of them were knitting specific. His MBA wheals started turning and the next day he showed her a mock up site for the KnitCrate and they went gangbusters from there. Now, almost a year later, they offer both month and bi-monthly subscriptions of several types of crates as well as store that both subscribers and non-subscribers can buy from.
As an example, this month’s Intermediate/Advanced KnitCrate has Marly’s own Dual Cable Boot Topper pattern, 2 skeins of Bijou Basin Ranch Bijou Bliss yarn, Pico Bracelet kit by Mary Beth Temple, Cosmos Creations Salted Caramel, and several promo codes.
Every KnitCrate includes a premium yarn, a pattern that can be made from that yarn, a sweet or soothing extra and a fun extra. Subscribers also get benefits and loyalty rewards. Check it all out on the KnitCrate website, to get your subscription started today!
