As we approach the 31st birthday issue of the magazine, I’m delighted to welcome you to our new website. All the old content is still here, so do please browse around to find all the things you’ve previously used and found interesting. One additional feature you’ll notice is that you can now comment on new articles, including this letter, so do let us know what you think!
Perhaps the biggest change is that we’ve made ordering subscriptions on the website much easier and more attractive for your purse. Instead of paying for all your copies at the start of the subscription, you now pay for each magazine monthly, with no hidden charges and no minimum term. First of all there’s a massive saving of 65% on the cover price, so you pay just £2.30 for each issue instead of £3.80. We then add to this postage at cost, which is calculated for each country. Shipping is worked out on packages rather than single items and this means that if you order several back issues, the cost of sending them will be considerably less than before. We’ve simplified and upgraded our payments system to a new method, which is so much easier to use with a credit or debit card, wherever in the world you live.
Some readers like to use iPads, tablets and phones, so we’ve made the website much easier to read on them. You might also like to know that Machine Knitting Monthly now has its own Twitter feed. We’ll be posting up details about each issue of the magazine, as well as following and re-tweeting anyone and any company involved in machine knitting in any way. So, if you’re on Twitter then please follow us at https://twitter.com/MachineKnitMag.
There are even more exciting times ahead, as we make new content available online and I’ve left perhaps our best news to the end. Should there be sufficient demand, you’ll be able to choose between having a printed magazine or an online version each month. It’s taken us a while but I’m pleased and proud to invite you to take a look at our new website and come and join us!
