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.

First name:

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.)

I heard a rumor about this through my work and just got things confirmed on their website. There will be a store opening in Lynnwood and one in Everett too. Hopefully they're starting North and moving their way down the coast!!

You all will love it. They carry a lot of nice material, love their house brand of yarn and they have a lot of Xstitch so can spend all day there.....

Oh I'm definitely excited about this. We lived in the Plains states when I was a teenager, and my mom and I would drink several pots of coffee and then go buzz around Hobby Lobby for the entire afternoon. Love that store!

I've got one opening close to me in Niagara Falls on Nov 4. Cannot wait. It is such a fun store to browse and get ideas, and that's before I get to the yarn, lol. I could spend hours and a ton of money.

I once lived in a small town in North Dakota and Hobby Lobby was the only place to buy yarn. Good store, but why oh why do they play music you usually hear at a funeral home? If they must play Christian music, why not play some that doesn't depress the heck out of me?

If I had one cup of coffee and went to the Hobby Lobby I would be climbing the walls. I can't even drink decaf coffee. Still has tooooo much caf in it. I drink decaf tea and I am ok. At night time I set a cup of decaf tea by my bed and drink it, put out the light and I am asleep in a flash. It totally relaxes me.

Yep that would be the closest to me too... or Grants Pass.. but maybe Coos Bay would have one... I couldn't get so lucky to have one show up on the coast.. there isn't enough daily traffic for a great store like that to stay in business here...

Thanks for that information. The Lynnwood store is fairly close to my home.
