How does Knitty.Me[mbership] work?

Since 2016, Knitty has been brought to you buy our readers, through Patreon. This support has brought financial stability to Knitty and we’re so grateful!

We’ve been asked for other ways to support Knitty for people who don’t want to use Patreon, and so here it is! Welcome to our Knitty.Me[mbership] page (powered by Memberful). Here’s how this site works:

  1. Go to our BECOME A MEMBER page
  2. Click a pledge link
  3. A credit-card payment window (powered by Stripe) opens up
  4. Fill in the details
  5. Click the big blue button at the bottom
  6. Stripe will process your first pledge and send the funds directly to Knitty
  7. Every 3 months after that, it will automatically process the same amount
  8. That’s it!

Knitty.Me[mbership] is the simplest way to support Knitty*. Based on feedback from Knitty Patrons who wanted us to keep it simple, it’s swag free over here. (If you’d like swag, we’re happy to provide! Just join us at Patreon.)

For those who wanted to see the hard numbers, aka what does Knitty receive when I pledge here vs Patreon:

Knitty.Me[mbership]

 (2.9% + 30¢ per charge to Stripe; $25/month to Memberful)

Patreon

 (per pledge: 5% to Patreon; 2.9% + 30¢ to Paypal; $20 to transfer funds to Knitty)

$15 $14.26 $20 $22.76
$20 $19.12 $50 $45.82
$25 $23.97 $100 $91.95

*Unlike Patreon, your Membership pledge is automated and will come out every 3 months starting with the day you pledge. Why every 3 months? Knitty publishes a new issue every 3 months. For example, if you join on Dec 21, your next pledge will be charged on Mar 21. Make sense?

  1. Long time reader, first time commenter — so,
    thought I’d drop a comment.. — and at the same time ask for
    a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?

    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built
    in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

  2. I’m gone to convey my little brother, that he should also pay a visit this webpage on regular basis to take updated from most up-to-date information.

  3. Great post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more
    on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate
    a little bit further. Bless you!

  4. you are in point of fact a just right webmaster.
    The site loading velocity is amazing. It sort of feels that you are doing any distinctive trick.

    Also, The contents are masterwork. you have
    performed a magnificent process on this matter!

  5. Hello! I’m at work surfing around your blog from
    my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Carry on the outstanding work!

  6. I needed to thank you for this excellent read!! I absolutely
    enjoyed every little bit of it. I’ve got you saved as a favorite to look at new stuff you post…

  7. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    clips, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its field.
    Excellent blog!
