Recently, I shared some of the most fun things for Christmas from the Mary Maxim Catalog. Within that, I mentioned that there are craft subscription box options for both knitters and crocheters. However, I thought they were worth elaborating on. So, I’m here to tell you about their monthly and quarterly knit and crochet clubs. Additionally, there are a few other cool Mary Maxim clubs you might want to know about.

Knitters’ Craft Subscription Box Options
There are two core craft subscription box options for each knitters and crocheters. One is monthly, the other is quarterly.
Monthly Knitter Club
The Knit Club of the Month is great for knitters who like to work on a variety of different quick projects. When you sign up, you pay $9.99 plus shipping and handling for the first month. Then you receive your craft subscription box in the mail. It includes that month’s knitting pattern and the yarn to complete the project. Each month afterwards, Mary Maxim automatically bills you $16.99 plus shipping and handling, sending you the next box. If you decide that this monthly knitters club isn’t right for you, just call and cancel future boxes.
Quarterly Craft Subscription Box for Knitters
The other option is the Quarterly Knit Afghan Club. You pay $29.99 plus shipping and handling for an entire year’s worth of this subscription. Every three months, you’ll receive a new knit afghan kit in the mail. Your subscription renews annually. Of course, you can cancel it if you decide it isn’t quite your thing. However, having yarn and a new knit afghan pattern show up in the mail every few months can be a really inspiring way to craft through the year. When you join this club, you’ll also get a free copy of Best of Mary Maxim Afghan Book, which includes eight knit blanket patterns.
Mary Maxim Crochet Clubs
Crocheters have the same options as knitters do when it comes to their craft subscription boxes, although of course these are crochet patterns instead of knit designs. Sign up for either (or both) the monthly crochet club or the quarterly crochet afghan club.
Craft Subscription Box Tip for BiCrafty Folks
Do you enjoy both knitting and crochet? Here’s an idea, sign up for a monthly box in one craft and a quarterly subscription to the other craft. Many people find that they crochet faster than they knit. Therefore, you might want to sign up for the quarterly crochet afghan club. After all, you might find it more feasible to crochet an afghan ever three months than to knit one.
At the same time, you can sign up for a monthly knitters subscription. You’ll get knit projects in the mail monthly that will take a shorter amount of time to complete. You’ll always have something to work on in either craft.
Preferred Crafters Club Membership
In addition to the craft subscription box options above, you should definitely know about Mary Maxim’s Preferred Crafters Club Membership. If you shop frequently with Mary Maxim, then you can pay a small annual fee to save money in the long run. You pay $19.99 for this VIP membership.
