Let's talk about hooks....

The thought occurred to me today as I'm sorting out hooks for this months box about the amount of hooks I'm sending out to you guys in the same size. I have my go to hooks and sometimes I like to have a few of the same size to pack away with my wips as I'm very good at forgetting what size hook I use. Then I began to think about the waste and environmental impact.

I'm thinking about maybe changing the way I do things a little and I'd love your feedback.

I'm thinking about removing hooks from the boxes and offering subscribers a free hook set instead. That way you'll have all the hook sizes you need.

 

What do you think?

I have been thinking about this- and although a full set would be great, for people who try only to get the set then cancel is a risk that a small business doesn’t need to exposed to, maybe for regulars who have definitely been sent a hook in the past, a little note saying you will need x size hook, which you got in October, but here is a little special extra hot choc or vip tiny gift instead?

I think that’s a great idea! How bout a free hook set with your first box then no more after that? Perfect!

I think that sounds like a great idea! I am a newbie so the option of a free hook would be great, but I’m already getting a small collection going so may not always need it in the future.

That sounds good idea I stopped subscribing to a magazine as they only had same hooks. But it is nice to get unusual sizes or handles

That’s a great idea! I’m really loving my two boxes and I’m excited to see what lovely project we will have in the next one

These hooks are great but I agree you only need so many. Another idea might be to give subscriber a choice of hook or another item each month. A free set of hooks is great too!

I think that’s a great idea! Either that or say what hook size is needed for that months project and somehow have an option to add a hook? ?
