How does knitty.Me[mbership] work?

Since 2016, Knitty has been brought to you by 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 welcome to our knitty.Me[mbership] page (powered by Memberful). Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to our knitty.Me[mbership] page
  2. Click a pledge link (all charges are made in USD)
  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! You pay nothing more than the amount you choose. Knitty is happy to pay the fees.

Set up your knitty.Me[mbership] now!

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.) If you prefer to use Paypal, you can subscribe here.

Confused? Here’s a handy chart that lays out all the options for you:

Service Payment accepted Rewards? User fees?
Patreon credit cards, Paypal yes no
Memberful credit cards no no
Paypal credit cards, Paypal no no

*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.
