A very short but sweet post to let you know that, as of next week, I’ll be posting on a fortnightly schedule.
This was the book that made me see that perhaps I could be a designer after all. The focus on product design, engineering and empathy was refreshing because of the focus on people, and designing products and systems that work for the people using them, not the other way around.
Another short post this week, this time to let you know that I am now an affiliate of Bookshop.org!
This week I want to say a big thank you to the knitting folk who’ve shown their support for From Needle to Needle, and to provide an index of all the resources mentioned throughout the series.
In my previous post I detailed some approaches to sustainable working practices that support designers and makers. This week I will step further back from knitting and crochet patterns to discuss how clothing production needs to get away from the market economy, and what that might mean for knitters, crocheters, and other clothes makers.
This post brings us back down to earth to talk about economies of knitting pattern production. You will have to be VERY realistic about how much you can earn from selling knitting patterns. This is a long one, so buckle up!
