#42 So You Want to Be a Crochet Designer?

If you want to become a crochet designer, here’s what you need to know.

To be honest, it’s not entirely difficult to get started – the first step is to design your first project. But time, patience and persistence are the three ingredients that separate a successful designer from a casual designer. To be clear, your first design doesn’t need to be complicated or intricate. It only requires you create something without the direction from others and from your own source of inspiration. From there you have a choice of where you want it to be published; on your own website, in a magazine or for a book. The publishing medium you choose will determine the route you take from there.

In this episode I’m joined by, Lorene, from Cre8tion Crochet, and she’s here to share her personal story and so many tips about becoming a full time crochet designer. She has experience in online and physical publication and she doesn’t hold back any information!
