Knit and Crochet Now Needs You!

If you are on the mailing list for Knit and Crochet Now!, then you have gotten the plea for donations. If not, let me tell you a bit about Knit and Crochet Now!

We are a little PBS show on knitting and crocheting. The show is funded completely by donations from viewers and a few other small companies (you can see who they are on the website). The show is Candi Jensen's brainchild, and she runs it from conception to editing. There is no big production company behind the show, just us. All of us experts on the show, just adore Candi and her vision to bring knitting and crocheting to everyone. We do not get paid royalties or anything special. (We basically just get our travel, lodging, and meals taken care of for the few days we tape, if you really wanted the inside scoop.) So why do we do it? We do the show because we love to do it, and we love to hear what you have to say about it.

We are gearing up to try to tape a Season 4 of show this summer. This is why Candi is running a pledge drive now. And every dollar counts. Honestly, if you like the show; just 5$ is a lot to us. I mean if 100 people donated 5$, that would cover travel for 2 of the experts. And why you are there, drop Candi a line on what you like about the show. We love to hear suggestions, and really do listen to them.

If you have donated to the show, thank you so much! We really do appreciate it and can't wait to get back in the studio to tape more!

You deserve the donations and the recognition. I love the show...when I'm able to catch it. I'm an avid crocheter, (been doing it for more than 40 years) and a sometime knitter, and yet...I learned a couple of things from your show over the time I've been watching it! It's a great show!...I'm a new follower of this blog. I look forward to keeping up with what's out there! Keep up the good work!
