Get Your Hat Design Published

June 15th, 2009

It’s always great to see how many people are excited about sharing their designs with others, and with the advent of the internet, it’s easier than ever to share through Ravelry, your own blog or website, and online magazines. Still, there’s something great about seeing your design in a book.

If you’ve always wanted to see one of your creations in print, now’s your chance!

Our friends at Quarry Books are currently inviting knitters to submit their knit hat designs for a chance to be included in the forthcoming collection, 1000 Fabulous Knit Hats, presented by Annie Modesitt. There will be cash prizes for the top 3 designs, in addition to the excitement of having your work in this cool compendium.

Designs are due July 1st. Click here to see all of the details on their website [PDF].

Want to get more advice on taking your yarncrafting to the professional level? This August, Daniela and I will be giving a talk at the Crochet Guild of America’s Professional Development Day, a day for people who want to get involved in knitting and crochet on a professional level. (Click here for more info.)

    Will some of the information and insights from the Professional Development Day be available to those of us who (unfortunately) can’t attend?

    I was so sad to see this offered and I can’t go!!

    Zontee says: Hi Kelli, if you can’t make PDD, look into joining your local knitting/crochet guild for insights and tips on getting into the industry. Many chapters have local talks and workshops.

    Knitters only?

    Zontee says: Hi Von, yes, I believe that this book is specifically for knit patterns. However, you may want to contact the publisher/editor directly through the information in the info sheet.
