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.

Has anyone bought from Yarn Paradise? I think it comes from Turkey. Did you like the yarn? Was it a bargain for you?

I have bought from them a number of times and even though the shipping is expensive, the yarn is so cheap that I do better buying from them than I do buying locally. The yarn that I have purchased is lovely. Their selection of yarns and colors are great. Give them a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.

I order from them quite often and have never been unhappy with the yarn. I usually receive my orders within 3 days, it is great. When you add the shipping to the total order price, divide by the number of skeins you are getting, I think you will be pleased with the amount you pay for each skein. I couldn't find it anywhere cheaper.

I ordered from them once. The yarn is beautiful. It was delivered to my door less than 24 hours after I place the order. How does that happen...coming from Turkey? Is the yarn store at the airport?

Once you start browsing prepare to spend! They have such lovely yarns and you just can't help yourself and even with shipping they are much cheaper. Happy Browsing xxx

I'd like to know if anyone from Canada has ordered from them and if they had any trouble with duty and customs. I just might wait until we do our snowbird thing and order it from there.

I have ordered from them many times and have been so pleased with the yarns and shipping time.So far no problems with customs or duty. 2 days all the way from Turkey and 3 weeks from the states or Canada leaves me a little puzzled.

I've ordered their yarn and love it. I just can't understand how I can get a shipment in less than a day from Turkey, and it takes me 2 weeks to get it by USPS in the same country! I agree with RBeckles...maybe they do have a yarn store at the airport!

Has anyone in New Zealand or Australia bought their yarns and how does the prices compare.

Sounds a bit like the have a drop ship place somewhere in North America. If so, then they make their money on the shipping costs to make up for the cheap yarn costs. Just guessing on this one.
