Are you a maker who has been trying to get their name out there, but just feels like they never quite know how to do it? You want to share you designs with the world, but don’t have a blog or can’t find the right place to share them? Guess what? I want to feature you! I want to help you get your designs out there so that you can continue to grow as a maker and become the design star that you’ve always wanted.
When I was first starting out, I had no idea how I was going to get my designs out there with only 200 or so followers. How could I, a small time starting out designer be able to get out there and live my dream of sharing my crochet designs with other makers. Then I came upon The Hook Nook Maker Call for the fall of last year. They didn’t care what kind of following you had, they wanted to feature any designer who wanted to get their name out there. So I decided to go for it! To my great surprise I was able to be featured! It was such an amazing feeling. I also took a chance and got to be featured in The Crochetprenuer’s Designer Feature for their 30 days of cozy. Both of those featured helped fuel my fire, and get my name out there!
Because I had that chance of being featured on both of those designers’ websites, I want to be able to do that for you. It’s so hard getting started as a designer, and I want to help you do it! I believe you can make your dreams of being a designer come true, so let’s jump start it by having you be featured on my blog, friend.
You might be wondering, “What can I contribute to the E’Claire Makery blog?” I’m looking for high quality patterns, tutorials, maker tips, or even just sharing your maker journey. I think everyone has their own unique thing to share with the maker community, and I want you to share yours!
If you’d like to share a pattern, that’d be awesome! It can range anywhere from a hat, scarf, blanket, wearable garment, amigurumi plush, and the list goes on. The pattern can either be a crochet or knitting pattern, and I’m even open to sewing patterns too! You’ll have to be able to take high res photos of your pattern in order to share it, because I want to be able to share the best quality images with the Makery audience.
Maybe a tutorial is the thing you’d like to share. This can range from a new crochet or knitting stitch, a new technique for either of those or another craft, how to sew a bag, how to make a hand carved hook, or anything else you might want to teach my audience.
Designing or teaching might not be your thing, but maybe you rock it at your Instagram feed, Pinterest, or killing it at a craft fair. I’m also looking for people to share any maker tips they might have for rocking the maker world!
I’m also looking for people to take part in a new feature that I’m going to be doing where I share a free pdf with my newsletter subscribers every Friday! This helps get a designer’s name out there by being promoted on social media and in my newsletter. I’d love to share one of your patterns as a special one day only free pdf and help get your name out there!
So if any of those things sound great to you, then I’d love for you to sign up to be featured on my blog or in Free Pattern Friday! I’m so excited to work with you!
