What’s happening inside the ClubKnit community pages:
As I progress through the building of this community website, i’m first concentrating on two things:
- free content and discussion, and
- Knitalong (KAL) content and discussion
I actually have three hand knitting projects that I’m knitting on the LK-150 (Stormy Weather, Marseille and Pathways). Initially the discussion and KAL area will reflect these projects.
Free content access:
The free content consists of blog posts as well as a community discussion area in the Forums. It will require you to join ClubKnit and be logged in to see and respond to forum posts. The purpose of doing this is so we can keep as much spam and riff raff out as possible.
Interested? Join here: [register_Basic (free)]
KAL Members content access:
Once you purchase a project from Knitting Today, we’ll add you to the members-only area where you can ask questions and respond to not only blog posts related to the project, but the KAL-specific discussion area in the forum. Once you log in, you’ll have a specialized dashboard that has links specifically to the areas available to you. Of course, you’ll also have access to the general free content areas of the site.
Subscribers (Future) content:
Plans include offering different blog posts such as Monday Motivation, Technique Tuesday, WWW Wednesday, Throwback Thursday and FO Friday. This is an aggressive blog posting schedule for someone (Me, Lea-Ann) who really doesn’t have a history of writing. Bear with me as I work on setting up my work schedule so I can best support you and your knitting projects.
As we develop content, we’ll add classes. For example,
- Knitting Today News Cable Newsletter
- Get It Out of the Box for the new and returning LK-150 owner
- Hints, tips and tricks for the Ultimate Sweater Machine owner
- basic sweater techniques for hand and machine knitters
- Cast on Methods for hand and machine knitters
Your feedback is super important so I spend my time and effort on those things most beneficial to you. Please feel free to comment below or in the Free forums once you join. These classes will have a Per Class fee, but we’ll also offer an annual membership option (Subscriber) for extended access and reduced registration costs. There are other goodies we’ll be implementing for those Subscribers like coupons to use when shopping at Knitting Today, in-person events, and additional content access.
I’m really excited to be offering this community to you, my knitters and customers, and hope you’ll look forward as much as I am to joining us online for all of your technical knitting needs.
