Yay, I love National Crochet Month. Don’t you? In celebration, I am hosting lots of great giveaways the entire month of March. Today’s giveaway is sponsored by Mainly Crochet, an amazing crochet subscription service.
When we think of crochet patterns we often think of books, magazines and blogs but there are also great resources like subscriptions. Subscriptions are great because you get fantastic patterns sent directly to your inbox.
MY favorite crochet subscription service is Mainly Crochet. I am fortunate enough to know the founder and owner Michelle Maks personally. Recently I sat down with her and chat more about this great service.
Michelle had this to say about Mainly Crochet.
Mainly crochet is the brainchild of Michele Maks, former editor of Crochet World magazine and a freelance designer for 23+ years. It is presently run by Michele, with technical editing and layout design done by Susanna Tobias (a previous Crochet World tech editor), and most of the photography done by Don Patty, a graduate of Dayton Art Institute. Designs for this online publication are conceived and executed by a variety of talented freelance designers. Because we have no space constraints, patterns that couldn’t be produced responsibly in a magazine, are able to be produced here as they should be, with lots of photographs, all the words needed in a consecutive format not interrupted by ads. Yes, that’s right, NO ADS EVER! When you cross over into the state of Maine, the sign says “The Way Life is Supposed to be”. When you cross over into mainly crochet territory, the sign says “The Way Patterns are Supposed to be Produced”. After all, we ARE based in Phippsburg!
We, of necessity, have a very small crew, but believe we are producing the very best of crochet patterns available today, in a format that is unique to this industry. Subscribers are totally delighted with both the content and presentation, and our next challenge is to become more obviously THE PLACE for crocheters to procure their next subscription.
When you buy a subscription to Mainly Crochet ,you are helping the craft of crochet grow by supporting a publication that is produced by crocheters for crocheters. Designers, models, artists, editors, stitchers, photographers, as well as the publisher share in the profits of this online only publication. We are committed to a fair and profitable relationship between all involved, and to a responsible presentation of all designs. We want you to enjoy the projects you make and be empowered, not frustrated. We’ve done our best to present and explain the pattern, and if we run into a glitch, we will help you through it.
What can you expect with a mainly crochet subscription? We will be adding streams of patterns frequently to the site from some of the most creative people in , and out, of the business, and ALL of those patterns are accessible to subscribers. We don’t do “issues”, but send patterns as we get them produced. We love to crochet and want you to love it too! Check us out at www.mainlycrochet.com!
You can subscribe to Mainly Crochet for only $24 per year. You’ll find patterns like these and more!
In celebration of National Crochet Month, Michelle is generously giving away one free membership to Mainly Crochet exclusively offered to fans of Cre8tion Crochet.
