Hello friends! Can you believe it is nearly time to release a new issue of our magazine? Issue 7 is coming on March 24, and we have the print copies patiently waiting in the Wool Cave to be packaged up and shipped out to their new homes!
Maybe you've noticed, but around here, we love kits! We know you love them too, so over the past few weeks, we've been running some fun votes over on Instagram to see which of our patterns you'd like to see as part of a kit. Today, I thought it would be a fun idea to look at the latest kits we have added to the shop, plus do a little overview of some of the others we are currently offering. But before we start discovering your next cast on, let's take a look at what you get in a Making Stories Kits.
Back in 2020, after we had collected all the feedback from our latest customer survey*, there was one recurring request that kept coming up; for us to sell single patterns. To offer individual patterns was something we wanted also, so we’re over the moon to be launching the Indie Pattern Marketplace right here on our website!
Have you ever just finished a really intricate project that took all your concentration and needed something quick and simple on the needles? Or perhaps you've finished working on a fingering weight, stockinette sweater that you know will get worn forever, but it felt like it took about that long to get it done. You, my friend, require a palate cleanser!
Hello friends! We interrupt our usual blog post themes to share a pretty important update with you; we are increasing the price of our magazine. We wanted to share this information with you here on the blog instead of just posting on our Instagram page or in a newsletter because we wanted to have the space to share all the details about this change and to also have it in a place that you can easily come back to in the future. This is new territory for us, as we've never done a price increase before, and we wanted to be very open about what the price change is, and why we are doing it.
I know, it seems a little early to be talking about it, but we know that time has a habit of flying by, so we wanted to give you plenty of warning about the last order dates to make sure any gifts (for loved ones or yourself!) arrive in time for Christmas. While these dates are certainly not our final order dates of the year for overseas and Europe, they are the final dates to make sure your order arrives in time for Christmas.
