Hello Indie Designers!
We’re humbled to have the best of the best independent designers developing patterns with The Fibre Co. yarns. To further encourage the creative use of our yarns, we have launched a yarn support programme for self-published indie designs. We would love to see more patterns in our yarns that reflect the diverse community of fibre artists around us.
As with our in-house call for submissions, the yarn support programme encourages indie designers with a diverse range of talent and a variety of skill level and experience to create more patterns in The Fibre Co. yarns.
We want to work with you.
As a yarn-led brand, we depend on the great works of the indie design community. Our founder, Daphne, has championed many designers over the years and is keen to develop relationships with designers new to The Fibre Co.
We generally post calls for design submissions twice a year and have supported well over 100 designs during the past 2 years. The call for 2019 autumn designs closed in April, and the next call will be later in 2019 for Spring 2020 designs.
Please sign up using the form below to be notified of future submission calls.
If you’re interested in submitting an idea outside of our formal programs, then please send Daphne an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a one-page pdf that includes a photograph of your knitted swatch, a sketch of the design, a written description of the construction (i.e., the type of stitches used and other details) and the yarn and colourway that you would like to use.
