WHAT IS THIS MEMBERSHIP?

This past year has been hard, y’all! It’s been hard for a lot of small businesses, and we are no exception. We’ve been brainstorming ways to keep on keeping on, and one exciting idea we came up with (with a LOT of input from other small biz friends) is this: the Friends of Knitted Wit’s Craft Emporium Membership. If you want to accomplish both the goals of seeing Knitted Wit & Craft Emporium survive, even thrive, AND have access to awesome patterns, how-tos, discounts, and private virtual hangs with awesome people, consider joining the club!

You can sign up for any of the levels here; please note that this will be a recurring membership, renewing every month. Membership perks begin in January 2024.

  • The perk of helping a small business succeed, by allowing us to host shopping events and community-building gatherings, such as the New Year's Cast-On/Vision-Boarding , or our annual Palentine's Day, Harvest Festival, and ShannaJean Birthday Party events (among so many others!).

$10/month:

  • The perk of helping a small business succeed, PLUS:

  • April: Makenzie Alvarez, cable queen, will be sharing cabling best practices & a lovely cabled sock pattern!
