We love seeing your ideas, and welcome design proposals that celebrate creativity, crafting, and learning.
Patterns that include tutorial supplements (such as videos or photo-step by step guides) are ideal for unique or unfamiliar techniques.
Only digital submissions are accepted. Submissions should be in .pdf format and include the following:
- Name, address, phone, and email information for the designer
- Sketch or photos that represent the finished work.
- Drawings/schematics to show how the piece is constructed. Pay attention to sizing and proportion.
- Specifics of which yarn(s) are proposed for the project - refer to our website to view our yarn selection.
- Image of a hand knitted swatch in the proposed (or similar) yarn.
- Description of the work, including notes on sizing, inspiration, and other information.
Multiple submissions are welcome, but please send one submission per email. All submissions should be emailed to Hello@MakersMercantile.com - use "Design Submission" as the subject line, and include the theme (ex: Design Submission - Soaring).
Acceptance and Payment
Once your proposal is accepted, we will create a contract outlining the terms of acceptance. Unless otherwise noted, we license for exclusive rights for a period of time, and then shared rights.
Payments are made shortly after the sample and pattern has been submitted. Samples become the property of Makers' Mercantile unless otherwise noted.
