Rewards Program

We appreciate our customers.  To say thank you for your loyalty we have an easy to use rewards program.

Every time you purchase merchandise we will record the pre-tax amount onto a 6-Box card with your name on it.  When the boxes are filled, you will receive a certificate for 10% of the face value of the card, and you will receive a new card so you can start the whole process over again!

We will keep the cards filed for you.  All you need to do when you are ready to make a purchase is to pull your card so we can record your new purchase.  If you have a certificate it will be attached to your card.  You can use the certificate right away or save up for one big purchase.  It's your choice.  There is no expiration. The certificates are valid for the purchase of merchandise only -  they cannot be used for classes or finishing.

After you finish your first card (white), you will start using a gold card!  When you get your first gold card you will also receive a special Knotted Needle Blue Bag for your use.  Several times a year we will hold a Blue Bag shopping event with our Blue Bag holders.  Everything you can fit into the Blue Bag will be discounted for you.

Your ONLY responsibility will be to pull your card from our card file at the time of your purchases.  We'll do the rest.

Knit Michigan

We are now a Knit Michigan Collection Center. Some of you may have been familiar with the mid-winter event called Knit Michigan, where money was raised in support of cancer patients and their families and chemo caps were collected. While the event has been discontinued, the need for cancer patient comfort items continues. A group of Michigan yarn shops, including ours, has banded together to help meet this need.

Here’s how you can help: Knit or crochet a chemo cap or Knitted Knockers™ (breast prostheses), or make pillows and fleece blankets for the infusion room. Patterns and instructions are free and can be found at www.knitmichigan.org. When they are done, bring them in to the store and we will help you tag them and then they will be sent to Knit Michigan and distributed to cancer units around the state. If you have a question about what yarns are best to use for chemo caps, ask us, or look for the shelf tag identifying the yarn and chemo cap friendly. Knitted Knockers™ need to be made from very specific yarns, check the pattern on Ravelry for details.

Have a need for a chemo cap or other comfort item? Let us know and we will help.
