This Affiliate Disclosure Policy is Valid from July 2011, to date.
This website is written and edited only by me, Sandy Marie.
I have been crocheting since 1966, I know, from decades of experience, what yarn is best suited for a project, what hook will keep you crocheting longer, and accessories that will help make your crochet life easier. I am NOT sponsored by any large company, and do not receive any kind of paycheck or compensation in order to recommend ‘their’ products. It is very important to me to be able to pick the right yarn and tools for each project, and not be limited by one company’s products.
As part of my service to the people who visit this site I recommend relevant products which I use and have found of great quality, from companies I have personally bought from and trust in terms of their quality, cost-effective pricing, and service. I only recommend companies and products when I have evidence of excellent quality and good value for you.
There are companies that have “affiliate programs” that I belong to. This means that when I recommend a product or service, and provide a link to buy it, I receive a small commision whenever someone clicks through to the supplier and buys. This does NOT involve any additional cost to you, the customer.
Not every company I recommend has an affiliate program so many of the products I recommend I DO NOT make money from. It is simply the best product to use for the best end result. You will always know which products are an ‘affiliate product’ noted close to the recommendation.
The money from affiliate sales helps me to keep the content on this website free of charge to you. It pays the costs of operation, supplies, and hosting fees.
It also helps me feed my family, and buy the yarn to keep providing you with free lessons and patterns.
Companies with which I have an affiliate or advertising arrangement with are as follows (this list will be updated from time-to-time):
Sandy Marie is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, or its other programs.
My integrity, my website, the products it sells and above all, your satisfaction are very important to me. If you have any questions or comments about this disclosure document or about any of the products on this website, please feel free to contact me through this page.
