Tomorrow is a big day on the MDK calendar. It’s the day we will pre-launch the 2020 MDK Holiday Shop to everyone who subscribes to our Saturday morning newsletter, Snippets.
The far-flung MDK team—in Nashville, New York, and Philadelphia—has spent many happy zooms plotting and planning the Holiday Shop for this most unusual year.
It’s been a joy working with makers we adore, some of whom we’ve worked with for years, and some who are brand new to the MDK Shop, to source exciting things that we hope will bring light and joy in this festive season. Beauty, utility, quality, and enjoyment: these are our guideposts. We are thrilled to have played a part in supporting small businesses like ours in such challenging times. We can’t wait to share it with you!
What is Snippets?
Snippets is a weekly love letter, from us to you. It arrives in your inbox every Saturday morning, at an hour when one’s backyard hens may still be abed. Snippets is waiting for you while you brew up the morning caffeine and settle in for some premium me time.
Snippets is, we humbly submit, all killer and no filler. It’s a clickable digest of newsy news—everything that’s happened on MDK in the past week, in case you missed anything. In fact, we hear from people who read MDK posts exclusively via Snippets, because it’s just so darn convenient to be able to run through a snappy list and click on the links that look most enticing.
And every week, we create special content—photographs, text, and graphics—just for Snippets. Making Snippets just might be our favorite part of the work week.
Snippets readers get first notice of cool new things, whether events (virtual, these days, but we hope in-person events will return, and soon) or exciting additions to the MDK Shop.
Plus: specials. In an era of digital overload, we appreciate that you spend precious time with us, and we do everything we can to make it time well spent, whether by learning a new tip, getting inspired for your next great project, or just laughing for a minute. When we have a deal or a discount, or something great is in limited supply, Snippets readers get first dibs.
In short: if a heaping helping of well-organized, beautiful knitting content sounds like something you’d enjoy reading while in your pajamas, we invite you to sign up for Snippets. There’s no time like the present! And you might find a great present.
