The Flock: our blogger ambassador programme
We’re so happy to announce that we’re launching our very own blogger ambassador programme! Are you a creative blogger, passionate about knitting or crochet? Then we want you in our flock! Find out more about how you can be involved and read our blogger testimonials…
What is the Flock?
Here at LoveKnitting and our sister site LoveCrochet, we’re working hard to continue building the ultimate home for makers. But how could we get there without the help of the craft blogging community? The Flock is a blogger ambassador programme built to recognise hard-working, talented bloggers — bringing them together to share ideas, collaborate on projects and review the latest products. Oh, and have a whole lot of fun!
How does it work?
If you’re a yarn loving blogger and are looking for fun opportunities with a company who are much more than just a yarn store, the Flock is the community for you! As a member of the Flock your content will regularly feature on our sites and social media channels where it will reach our large audience of passionate crafters. We will also keep you up to date with the latest opportunities to collaborate with us and help you to connect with your fellow makers. Plus, you’ll appear on our A-Z list on the Flock sign up page alongside fellow bloggers for all our community to see. Here are just some of the opportunities you could get involved with:
- Road test new products
- Share your views via surveys and focus groups
- Contribute your content to our popular blog and newsletter
- Take over our social channels
- Lead your very own KAL/CAL and create your own custom colour packs
- Receive competition prizes to give away on your blog
- Be invited to our VIP Flock parties
- Be a featured blogger with an interview on our blog
How do I get involved?
It all starts with a simple sign up. Express your interest in joining by signing up here and once we know you’re interested, we’ll check out your blog. If your blog looks like the kind of thing our makers will love, you’ll automatically join our list of VIP bloggers and become a member of the Flock. From then on you’ll start to receive our latest updates before anyone else, you’ll hear about collaboration and content opportunities first and enjoy many of the benefits listed above!
Don’t just take our word for it, hear from some of our wonderful blogger friends, who we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with for years, about the fun projects we’ve worked on together…
“For a few years now I’ve had the pleasure of hosting not only giveaways with LoveKnitting & LoveCrochet, but also receiving yarn to review and even recently designing an exclusive pattern for their blog for Princess Charlotte’s birthday! During all this time they’ve been wonderful with getting back to me very quickly regarding any questions I’ve had (which trust me, have been many). They’ve also offered me multiple exclusive discounts to share with my readers, as well as some reserved for my own private use. To date, they’ve been one of my favourite companies to work with, and I hope to continue working with them for many years to come!”
“It’s been 18 months since I really started blogging about what it’s like to be a full time cro-pre (yep, crochet professional). I tend to err on the side of ‘helpful’ rather than ‘personal’ and prefer to share patterns, how-to’s and useful hints than moan about the amount of weetabix my children somehow manage to smear on my yarn stash. LoveKnitting & LoveCrochet got in touch with me fairly early on, and over the last year have suggested all sorts of lovely ways to use the blog to work together. They send me lovely, yummy yarn samples to try out and I get content for my blog, while they get a helpful a review and some tasty pics to share. LoveKnitting & LoveCrochet also have a genuine sense of fun and excitement that you can’t help but get caught up in. I’ve made specific patterns for them for festivities, from Donut Day to Halloween, which you can find for free here, in my designer area, which brings peeps over (and they get to see my other patterns too) and LoveCrochet have more lovely stuff to feature. There’s also the super-fun workshops, getting to hang out with the crochet girl gang, playing with infinite amounts of gorgeous yarn, and too many opportunities to mention that have all come out of getting to know LoveKnitting & LoveCrochet!”
“LoveKnitting & LoveCrochet was one of the first companies I had conversations with about my blog and YouTube who really ‘got’ what I was doing. I felt that they really understood my vision and supported me so well. Working with LoveKnitting & LoveCrochet on this level has given me opportunities to create beautiful projects with gorgeous yarn and feature on their blog. Not to mention the amazing opportunity I had to teach Kirstie Allsopp how to crochet while being involved in the Snowflake appeal for Home Start!”
