A while ago, I was interviewed in a local paper for an article about a yarn show we were attending. The reporter asked me what I enjoyed about doing the festival and my answer came easily: more than anything, I love getting to meet our customers in person. We spend a lot of time squirreled away in the studio, working on our own, and even though we hear from our customers by email and on social media… sometimes it can feel a bit distant. Going to shows is when we get to put faces to names, projects to makers, and really be part of the amazing community of knitters and crocheters that makes everything we do at SpaceCadet feel worthwhile.
And when I say community, I mean it. Go to our Ravelry group and ask a question — for knitting help, for a pattern idea, for anything at all — and people will post right back with help and suggestions. I just love that! I honestly believe that knitting and crocheting bring out what’s best in people but, sometimes, I am still taken completely by surprise.
The Most Amazing Email
The SpaceMonster Mega Yarn Club opens for subscriptions for two weeks only twice a year and if you miss it, you miss it. But this past December when we opened the club, we got an email that just blew me away. One of SpaceCadet’s long-time customers wrote to say that they wanted to share a little fiber-love with the rest of our community, and had purchased a one year subscription to the SpaceMonsters for us to give away!
Can you believe that?!? A one year membership in the club that is filled with big, smooshy, colourful yarns and those fabulous SpaceMonster gifts. Twelve months of quick-knit yarns delivered right to your doorstep! Along with the opportunity to get more for a larger project. And a super-fun gift every six months. All paid for — all completely taken care of — by an incredibly wonderful, generous, yarn-loving member of our community.
Seriously, knock me down with a feather!
