Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting message board digest with the latest knitting pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more knitting-related material (pictures, patterns, tips) than contained in all knitting books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

You'll be able to talk and share ideas with more knitters than you could meet if you attended all the largest trade shows. And you'll be able to do all that without leaving your house!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

E-mail address:

It's FREE, and you'll receive my first e-mail right away. Also, you'll get instant access to the most recent topics on our knitting forum: hundreds of great tips from other knitters.

(A new newsletter issue is released each week. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss this week's digest.)

Hi, a little while back, I asked the question are there any Card-
makers in our group? Well the response was Great.! So many
of us Love making Cards. I noticed you have Swaps. I am new
here and was wondering if anyone knows, How to Organize a
Swap? We could swap or " exchange" cards with each other.
Just one or two to start. This way we could get to know each
others styles. Would anyone be interested in this idea?
Let's talk about it.! Thanks, MsMarie1

YEAHHHH!!!! I lost your KP name, regretfully!!! Glad you popped up again. Okay if I put you on my "Buddy List" ??
I LOVE making cards, and I'd definitely be up for some swapping, so long as ADMIN doesn't have a problem with it. This is supposed to be a Knitting and Crocheting Forum, although there is a heading for non-K&C. I don't think ADMIN meant for that to be used "regularly," though. As long as it's OK with them, it's okay with me!! Any other takers?????

I think it's just a place where the KPers you interact with sorta regularly are all in one place. Like, Aunt Knitty is in mine, and we email back and forth frequently.

I could start a swap It would go like this

Subject --- Would be TREES-no embellishments on this card (You have to specify what you want on a card)

Usually it is about 5 cards

Have them to the person at a certain date with a return address and stamped envelope. Please sign the back of your card.
You receive the cards and divvy them up and return them to the correct senders, if you are the person writing up the swap.
If anyone wants to do this E mail me with your address and the fact you want to join,
and I will keep a copy of the addresses -if this works out' any person who signs up and doesn't send a card for a particular named swap will be dropped from the list, when they said they would send a card to a swap Everyone would keep the addresses at all times. Also remember some people are not as good as others, but please realize they could be new stampers.
You can send me a card and I will return it. -jna

I don't quite follow how it goes. I do make cards, usually for personal use or to make for soldiers overseas. I belong to a group called Operation Write Home (OWH). How often would this take place, will it be on going? Do I send to one person, or multiple people? Sorry if I sound a little dense, I have never done more than a recipe swap and they never seem to work.
