I haven’t been able to blog for a while because I am busy developing some very exciting new patterns for you. The good news is that the shoot is this weekend, the bad news is we don’t know what the weather has in store for us – although you can probably imagine!
Today I had a chat with Juliet Bernard who is editor of The Knitter but is also starting a new venture called Planet Handmade which is a new site aimed at designer-makers and retailers. Juliet told me, “There are so many designer-makers out there that are truly creative and innovative and would love to run their own business. We hope to give them the skills they need and promote them to a much wider audience.” The site will start with knitting and crochet crafters but hopes to expand to all crafts in the future.
Right now Planet Handmade needs your help. If you are a retailer or designer-maker please go to www.planethandmade.net and answer one of the questionnaires on the homepage. Even if you aren’t running your own business yet but you would like to in the future, your opinion counts. As Juliet says, “Everyone’s input is important to make sure we are offering the best service we can.”
So what are you waiting for?
