Customer Reviews

Thankful for the tips you gave!

My daughter was my pattern tester until she lost her baby, which changed her interest. I have had not only one, but a few bad experiences with pattern testing. Either people never get back with me or they get the pattern then get busy and do something else. One tester was awesome to get back with me, edited 3 of my pattern and since she was really good in English AND crochet, I totally trusted her. So I uploaded her revisions unseen for sale and people found mistakes after the revisions. Now what I do is to make the pattern, finish it , put it aside for a month or 2. Then edit it myself with fresh eyes. The indication of the quality my patterns for me now is my repeat customers. You gave me new insights on how to screen and engage testers and I would much rather have tester, than to remain my one man band. Thank you for these excellent tips.

Great tips on a much-needed subject

This is a great podcast for owners of fiber related businesses. Each week Marie Segares homes in on a topic of interest and gives really helpful suggestions that are very do-able.

The best yarncrafter business resource

I've been binge-listening to Marie's podcasts for the past week. I've set my iTunes to save the podcasts once they're played, because I go back and listen to them again and take notes. Here's why CYE is worth the subscription: Marie talks about subjects that actually matter. She discusses CAL/KAL/GAL and hangouts, and how to create one. She talks with crafters and designers about health and yarncrafting. She interviews designers and gets those all-important, tip filled startup stories that somehow match what we as solo-preneurs are going through: how do I get my patterns published? Why go to conferences? Is my tech editor right for me? Mailing list? What's that?

Marie hits the nail on the head time and time again with her podcasts, and each and every episode contains AT LEAST one little idea-changing, inspiring snippet that you hadn't thought of. Hit that subscribe button, sit down with your knitting or crochet WIPs, don't forget your coffee and notebook (pen, too, I forgot that once), and catch up. There's a lot to learn here.
