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.

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.

Just got back from a stash-building run. While at Michael's I heard some sort of announcement regarding an AARP discount. When I reached the check-out, I asked about it. I received 10% off my yarn (which was already on sale) before they figured state sales tax. All you have to do is show your card. This offer is valid at the local Michael's only on Tuesday. Don't know if the entire Michael's chain is doing this, but if you're buying big, Tuesday's the day locally.

Yep. Saw that in an AARP e-mail just in the last few days. The discount is good every Tuesday.

There was an AARP discount sign at our Michael's when I was there on Sunday so I asked about it--every Tuesday. Yay! Michael's near me is right near Ross which is another 10% off for seniors on Tuesday store.

Thanks for sharing that info. I didn't know it and will certainly make my next trip on a Tues. and ask for the discount. On top of the sale price you say? That's a good deal.

I refuse to pay out money to just get advertisement from AARP. And at our ages we should automatically get that discount like they use to do for senior citizens. At one time Senior Citizens were shown a lot of respect not now.

Ames used to have a Senior Citizen card for people over 55. When you went shopping on a Tuesday and showed the card you received the discount. It's a shame they went out of business.

I know in our area Belks has a discount day on Tuesday for seniors and we have a Michaels here (haven't checked that out to see if they have a sign up, but if it was on the AARP site, all Michaels should be included. Be sure to check for discount coupons online - no matter where you shop. My daughter-in-law has shared many good ones that she has taken the time to look up.

The money that AARP receives in dues goes for many things including lobbying for elders and discounts in many areas, but, that is a discussion for another thread.
Many places give SC discounts... Kohl's, Savers, Joann's...

Discounts and sales are great. I am in Eastern Canada and bought some yarn on sale and the cashier said Tuesday was Senior's Day and I would get an additional 10% off. One of the many good things about being a senior .......
