Shibui Sample Program
Sample garments draw customer attention to a pattern or a yarn. If you have knit a Shibui Knits pattern as a store sample using Shibui Knits yarn, we will be happy to credit your account for the cost of the yarn used. Limit one sample per pattern. Free and free-with-purchase patterns are available for download.
Seeing a Shibui Knits seasonal collection in person is an exciting and inspiring experience. The chance to feel the knitted fabric, see the impeccable finishing details, and compare garments is sure to appeal to your customers. Sign up to showcase Shibui garments in your shop for a two-week cycle.
Knitalongs are a great way to get patterns and yarn in front of an engaged audience. If you are hosting a KAL in your shop, Shibui Knits is happy to provide the necessary yarn to the person hosting the KAL. Send us an email to let us know what you’re planning and how you would like us to help. If your KAL involves our current collection or a novel remix, we are also eager to share it on our Facebook or Ravelry pages – we love to get the word out.
If you don’t feel like running your own KAL, you might consider getting involved in one of ours. We host two yearly KALs, one for each collection. Let us know if your store would like to participate and we’ll send you the yarn to make a store sample.
