Sample Incentive Program:
We all know that project samples sell yarn and patterns. Make a shop sample using any Kira K Design pattern & send us a photo. You’ll get 3 copies of that pattern free with your next order. Want to substitute a yarn that you stock? Feel free to e-mail Kira at firstname.lastname@example.org for advice in choosing an appropriate substitute.
Traveling Trunk Shows
We have many project samples available to our retailers. You can request samples from our list, and when available they will be sent out for a 1 month trunk show, with a 5 day grace period to return samples to us. We will send you signage and on request can send display items such as head forms for displaying hats. You must order at least 5 copies of each pattern for which you are loaned a sample, unless you do PDF sales through Ravelry’s LYS program. We will pay any additional shipping to send the display items to your shop, and you will be responsible for return shipping costs including insurance. Samples that are not returned on time will be charged 10% of the replacement value for every week that samples are late. If a sample is lost or damaged, you must pay the replacement fee, or item must be replaced within one month with any changes to the yarn or color approved in advance.
In-Person Trunk Shows & Classes
As a Kira K Designs retailer, you can arrange for Kira to visit your shop for an in-person trunk show and one or more classes. Some examples of 2-3 hour classes are Successful Yarn Substitution, Seaming & Finishing, Knitting with Beads, and Fixing Knitting Mistakes. For an in-person trunk show, Kira will bring samples of all of her designs, or a sampling of your choosing, for an in-store event that will energize your customers! They can see the design samples, try things on, and chat with Kira about which size and yarn would work best for them. A talk, mini-class, or Q&A can be arranged as part of the trunk show. Please e-mail email@example.com to discuss class options, potential dates, teaching fees, and travel expenses.
