    Love shopping at WEBS! The website is laid out well, the colors are accurate, the reviews are helpful!

  • crewse

    I read your posts on Twitter but also go on Ravelry. I still go to your website though! crewse

  • peggylarner

    Like others here, I don’t want to think of the hours I’ve spent browsing the yarns on WEBS! Love this site. ETA: Favorite social media is probably facebook–instagram is pretty, too, though.

  • westonmom

    Webs is my go to my ideas.

  • E Chak

    I’m on twitter! Love getting the quick updates, but not the repeated reminders. Keep up the good work.

  • Rebecca Walton Chirak

    If you don’t count Ravelry, then it’s a tie between Pinterest and Facebook.

  • Anjela Bugher

    I love the blog, but I also like the Ravelry group! It’s the first one I’ve really spent any time on. As for interacting with WEBS, I too fill my cart with dream yarn for dream projects over and over. :)

  • Michele

    I’m so excited to experience the WEBS love. One day, I hope to one day take a trip to your store.

  • Cynthia Smith

    Facebook is my favorite social media channel. I check the Webs posts daily but also browse the Webs online store, as well.

  • Marianne W

    My favorite social media is Ravelry. My favorite way to interact with Webs is straight through the website and I do enjoy the podcast and blog.

  • AlisonFashion

    Ravelry definitely. Love the site.

  • Frankie Easter

    I spend SO MUCH time on Ravelry — it’s by far my favorite “social” site. Congratulations on 40 wonderful years!

  • Purplemoonmom

    Favorite SM is Facebook. Ravelry a close second.

  • Debbie

    Favorite social media is Facebook…I love the WEBS posts. Also love purchasing items from WEBS , great prices and amazing products <3

  • Leah

    I like Facebook. But usually for Webs I just get e-mail updates and then end up on the website from there. I’m a little strange probably in that I like the paper catalog too. I prefer everything else I get to be electronic, but there’s something about getting my Webs catalog in the mail that makes my day.

  • Cheryl Carlson

    Facebook and Ravelryprimarily Facebook though. I used to spend hours filling that dreamcart, now I just make the 2 plus hour drive and fill a real cart. It is yarn nirvana

  • California Girl

    My favorite social media channel? That would be Ravelry, no contest. And my favorite way to interact with WEBS online is from my home office computer – either reading WEBS emails and linking to featured yarns and patterns, or going directly to the site to see what’s new. I particularly enjoy checking out the WEBS site early in the morning with my first cup of coffee before I head off to work. Of course it’s not the same as going there in person, but when you live on the left coast…….

  • Liisa

    I use Ravelry nearly everyday, never Tweet, rarely look at Facebook, don’t have a Google Plus account and instawhat…….I do follow a couple of blogs regularly.

  • Ronni

    You have been my favorite yarn source since I discovered you, and your prices and selection are great. My favorite part of your blog are all the handy tips, ie. the dry erase marker!!!

  • Karen G.

    I use Ravelry most, but just recently started using Pinterest too.

  • Victoria

    Definitely a cart filler with all the yarns I dream of getting. I like the Facebook posts which I then follow to the website where I do spend alot of time learning about all the incredible fibers available. Ravelry is my go to site for patterns

  • stefanie g-r

    I really love the Webs Facebook page! A close second is Pinterest.

  • Debbie L

    I get a lot of ideas on Facebook as I have a lot of knitting pages I follow there. I always seem to find some project some site has posted that looks interesting or something I would make. Then I log onto WEBS to see if they have the yarn, or sometimes I am wondering what weight a yarn is. WEBS almost always has it. I just started listening to Kathy Elkins’ pod casts recently. Very informative.

  • http://tinytwinklings.blogspot.com/ Marisa Sprinklepuff

    My favorite is definitely Pinterest :) It’s magnetic, I’ve lost so much time to drooling over pretty pictures.

  • Laura

    Ravelry and Facebook are my favorites for social media, but my favorite WEBS interaction would really be the e-mails!

  • Inga

    Twitter is the only social media site I use. As for my interactions with Webs, I like receiving the targeted emails.

  • Amanda

    Ravelry first, but I love seeing the WEBS updates on my Facebook feed!

  • Christina

    I love Ravelry. Not a big fan of other social media but I always read the blog!

  • Shari

    I love Facebook – seeing the daily yarn sale is always tempting!

  • Patricia McAdams

    Patricia McAdams. Anytime Webs appears on Facebook or Google I stop everything else and start dreaming.Then I look at the useful informaion before going back to the yarns on closeout then check the tutorials, videos, etc. Then I check in with ravelry to see what is of interest. What was meant to be a coffee break browse ended up lasting all morning.

  • Layla Young

    My favorite social media channel is ravelry, but facebook is a close second. I do love the emails and perusing the site. I also love the hard copy catalog when it comes in the mail. Now only if my husband would get the hint when I leave them lying around the house! :) Happy Anniversary!

  • Sharon

    Facebook because more people are on it but I actually prefer G+.

  • grae

    My favorite way to interact with Webs is to spend time browsing the website which is attractive and well organized. Something that would make the experience better (save time, be more efficient) would be if you could type in the weight, color and fiber that a you might be looking for for a specific project and have all your options presented to you. My biggest frustration shopping from the website is not knowing what a color is really going to look like when it arrives.

  • Ashley W

    I’m still a big fan of the blog because it drops neatly into my RSS reader and I don’t have to go hunting!

  • Becky

    I hope I am not too late to be entered in the giveaway! Thanks for being a great yarn store!

  • Stephanie W.

    Definitely Raverly.com, love finding patterns, ideas and information on yarn

  • elchra

    Rachel Roberts
    I use FB the most – it’s just easiest as I’m on it everyday.
    I guess I use Pinterest and Ravelry the next – but neither very often. If I’m looking for a pattern for something specific, Ravelry is great. If I’m looking for random inspiration I go to Pinterest. Hopefully, I’ll remember to enter on those. I haven’t gotten into Instagram or Twitter – to much instant noise and gratification – I need my space from technology, too. I only use my Google+ for the Dropbox.

  • Beth Evans

    My favorite way to keep up with WEBS is via Ravelry, next up would be Facebook. :)

  • Karen H

    I would also say Raverly.com.

  • AW

    I love Ravelry and I also enjoy putting yarn in my cart on the website.

  • Verbalburns

    I follow on twitter and like webs on Facebook. But I really enjoy the blog the most

  • Ellen Gaynor

    Favorite social media site is Facebook. I love drooling at all the lovely yarns on Webs.

  • Audrey

    Webs is a wooly wonderland!

  • Elaine in NYC

    I generally use email for contact due to fewer privacy issues; although I am a Ravelry member and find it very useful on many levels, I’m not really into joining groups.

  • Erika S

    I love Pinterest. It’s my fav social media channel. I’m always finding interesting new knitting and crochet patterns.

  • Laura

    Ravelry. But email me pretty pictures of yarn, and I’m putty in your hands! :)

  • http://raciebaby.blogspot.co.nz/ Rachelle Crosbie

    I think my favourite way to interact is here on the blog, though I also use Facebook and Ravelry a lot. The blog though is guaranteed to come up on my feed so I see it more often.

  • Frances Lunney

    For me, both Ravelry and Facebook are ways I interact with Webs via social media.

  • Jeanette

    Favorite social media is Instagram – close 2nd: Twitter (where I follow WEBS)

  • Tina Hollands

    My favorite way to interact with webs is through twitter or yarn.com!
