In this week’s mini episode, I announce a new series on designing and self-publishing your crochet and knitting patterns that will start next week. So far, I’m expecting the series to include episodes focused on:
Planning and drafting your design,
Polishing your pattern,
Publishing (including an exploration of different online marketplaces like Amazon, CraftFoxes, Craftsy, Crochetville, Etsy, Kollabora, Patternfish, and/or Ravelry), and
I shared some questions from Goddess Crochet, Junee B Designs, Patterns Tried and True, and Hooked by Angel, but I’d love to answer other questions you have about self-publishing in this series. Also, if you have a favorite online marketplace, let us know what it is (and why) so I can share that during the publishing episode.
Leave your questions or comments about self-publishing patterns at http://creativeyarnentrepreneur.com/selfpub, Tweet me at @cyeshow, add +mariesegaresundergroundcrafter to your G+ circle and send me a note, or leave a message at 646-713-8973.
Also, I’ve been thinking about starting a closed Facebook group for friends and fans of the Creative Yarn Entrepreneur Show. This would be a group where we could talk about issues for indies in the yarn industry in a private setting. If you would be interested in joining such a group, reach out to me on Facebook on my personal account at https://www.facebook.com/marie.segares or via my business page at https://www.facebook.com/UndergroundCrafter and let me know.
