Supporters Club is looking for members!
I'm sure some of you may be wondering what it means when you hear the term "supporters club" on Instagram Live. The Supporters Club is a project that started in 2015 to recruit support members for amirisu. One of the triggers was when a customer told me, "If there was a crowdfunding or stock of amirisu, I would buy it. I want to support you!" I was so happy that I cried.
Since then, we have recruited new members twice a year, in July and February. (They will start in August and March, respectively.) Since you are going to pay money to become a member, I thought about what I could do from here, and added various benefits. For example, yarn that can only be purchased by members. In the past, we have sold limited quantities of yarn such as Colmo by Elsa Wool and Studio Meez. I was invited to amirisu's 2nd anniversary event (I apologize for the inconvenience caused by it being a little too crowded...), and last year I started a member's knit cafe.
The sale is actually held about three times a year. Only a part of them are on the market, and they are a little unsold. Behind the scenes, we have a sale for supporters every season. Popular brands such as Quince are also subject to sale, depending on seasonal availability. The discount rate is also higher than the general public!
There is a big difference between those who use our service and those who do not use it at all. In fact, there are so many customers who want to place an order over the phone. However, customers who are not members are strictly prohibited. It can be a source of mistakes, and it is difficult to consult with you on the phone for a long time because the staff will be answering the phone while serving customers at the store. Of course, we are happy to consult with our supporters, and we also accept orders by e-mail. If you are interested in this service, or if you have a pattern you want to knit but don't know which thread to choose, please feel free to contact us.
See you tomorrow for the new supporters club service!
