Welcome to The Yarn Alchemist Collective

Helping aspiring knitwear designers transform their yarn into designs of their own creation.

Are you ready to make magic?

The Yarn Alchemist Collective is a magical place, where you enter a knitter and leave a knitwear designer. Here we are able to transform ideas and yarn into stunning designs, taking potential into physical manifestation.

If you've had dreams about starting a career as a knitwear designer but don't even know how to get started creating a pattern, let alone writing one... this is the place to be.


What is The Yarn Alchemist Collective?

There weren't any tables that provided support, resources and education for aspiring knitwear designers, so I decided to build one myself. And we have a seat at the table just for you!

The Yarn Alchemist Collective is a private-online community for those who are just getting started or aspire to start living a more creative life by leaving their mark in the fiber industry by sharing their stories in the form of stitches.

In the Collective, you can connect with other designers on the same path, get support and resources and share information on not just about creating well-written patterns but also starting a career.


What Can You Expect from The Collective?

My goal with this space is to help you...

  • Learn the SWATCH method, which is my proprietary 6-step framework that teaches you how to design, write and launch patterns that sell with ease. I run my signature program, the SWATCH Studio Circle here, aimed to helping you reach your design goals faster.
  • Meet other aspiring and beginner knitwear designers like you, so that we can all exchange ideas, learn new strategies, and uncover new ways to successfully launch and grow our knitwear design careers.
  • Make better, more well-informed decisions about design, pattern writing and next steps for your career.
  • Get answers to the burning questions you just can't Google when it comes to writing  up your next pattern or finding the perfect yarn for your design.
  • Find inspiration and get encouragement from your fellow alchemists. 

Who is The Yarn Alchemist Collective For?

The Collective is for any knitwear designers who are starting out or aspiring, who are serious about turning potential into physical manifestation. Who want to share their stories through their stitches. Who want to make an impact on others and create a more fulfilling life for themselves. Who are willing to get started and do the work TODAY.

While lurkers are welcome (there's a good chance many of us are introverts) this isn't just a space to just take, but also give back. I'll share with a proverb from my culture to emphasize this: "He waka eke noa"(Māori for we are all in the same boat). What makes The Collective a truly special place is the power of community. Many of the members here are on the same journey as you or who have been through it already, meaning you don't have to figure this out alone. And you shouldn't have to. A rising tide lifts all boats. The more we share and give to each other, the more enriched we will all be for it. 

So join today! Membership is FREE, with opportunities to take your education further. Stop sifting through random information on Google and go straight to the source and get what you need from people like you. Let's transform our yarn and our lives together.
