SUBSCRIBERS/READERS Q's

The PayPal button is greyed out and I can’t finish my purchase – help!

Occasionally the PayPal button doesn’t want to play, this has been observed when using mac or iPad .  If this is the case please contact us via babs@yarnacademy.co.uk with your name and a valid email address.  A new account will be created manually for you.  When you login the order process should then work as expected.

 

How will I receive my copy of yarnpeople?

All pre-sales orders will receive an email with a download link once the issue goes live.  Once the publish date is past you will receive immediate access, via an email download link.

 

Can I print out the patterns?

We have specifically created the yarnpeople ezine to allow simple printing options for each individual pattern.  There are limited images and mainly text for the pattern pages themselves.  This way you can choose to view clearly from a pad or print out without using big quantities of ink, which every you prefer.

 

How can I share my WIPs from the magazine?

We will be creating a slack group for all our readers to chat and build a community around the ezine, your image share and more.  Of course you can also share WIP on instagram with the hashtags #yarnpeoplearethebestpeople #designername # patternname and tag us with @yarnpeople.  We will share a selection of makes on our IG channel too as we love to see all the new yarny creations joining the world.
