Hello, my fellow knitters 🙂
I have a question… do you belong to a yarn buying co-op or any other yarn group? I have been chatting with local knitters (in British Columbia, Canada) and a lot of them are interested in participating in a yarn group-buy program. So the idea is to contact local and artisan yarn makers and negotiate competitive prices on yarn if a certain amount is reached. For example, get 40% off the regular price if 10kg of yarn is bought… or something like that… this is just a rough example of course. I just thought of it off the top of my head.
I know there are local knitters interested but I wanted to ask everyone if you’d participate if there was something available worldwide. Shipping would be additional but you will get the highest quality yarn for a fraction of the regular price in store. AND we will get to help yarn artisans and passionate yarn-istas (I just made this word up but it sounded right 😀 ).
Any thoughts? If you have experience with something like that, please share. 🙂
