Fiber Patterns is LIVE

I am so incredibly pleased to announce that FiberPatterns.com is LIVE!

This project, aimed at bringing knitters and crocheters together with today's best indie designers, has been in the works for awhile and is finally available for everyone to view!  During the launch I have become acquainted with some incredible designers from around the world and meet new ones every day.  It's a wonderful community full of artistic expression, talent and kindness.  

FiberPatterns.com is an awesome new website is full of unique knitting and crochet patterns designed exclusively by indie designers.  

Knitters and crocheters can find some of the most current designs & click on the pattern for more info.  The site refers shoppers back to the designer’s website or Ravelry where you can get more information on the pattern and purchase/download instantly. 

FiberPatterns.com really lets you connect with the designers with a full bio of each, a way to contact them and links to their own sites to see the full range of their designs.  The site is easy to navigate, has no ads, and fresh, unique designs.  PLUS +++  The best part, is that’s so easy to find what you’re looking for.  If you’ve ever been to a site where you’re searching for women’s cardigans and you find 80,000 patterns which you need to sift through to weed out the dated patterns, you’ll know what I mean.  No 1970’s leaflets here. 

All designers are currently designing.  Each one specializes in a niche within their craft and more designers are being added regularly.  None of the designers work for publishing houses or yarn manufacturers. They are not limited with their designs nor bound by constraints.  They are truly independent and have come up with unique, fun, artistic and beautiful sweaters, blankets, scarves, socks, mittens, hats, children’s garments and so much more. 

The introductory team of designers includes Katherine Lee, Kerry Bullock-Ozkan, Elin Brissman (a brilliant painter as well), Janet Welsh, Catherine Roujansky, Holli Yeoh, Agata MackiewiczSusan Carlson and myself, Donna Estin.  

The common bond between all of us, is Ravelry of course!  Visit us on Ravelry, see our designs and to see what all the excitement is about, visit www.FiberPatterns.com.

Happy Knitting & Crocheting,
