Ravelry In-Store Pattern Sales Program

Ravelry

I get asked a lot by local yarn shops to sell my patterns and well as for printed version of them. Many Thanks to Ravelry and their innovative In-Store Pattern Sales Program – both these services are now available! This feature lets local yarn shops sell your patterns to their customers. It is growing every month, with new shops and designers joining the program each day.

What it is

Ravelry is pleased to offer a new service for local yarn shops (LYSs), designers selling patterns through the Ravelry Pattern Store, and any customers who want to buy those patterns through brick-and-mortar shops! Designers and shop owners (LYSOs) can opt-in to this service.

 

How it works

Participating LYSOs can search for patterns available through this service (designers agree to the pricing scale and LYSs sell the patterns at the retail price of the pattern) and sell them to customers through their shops, printing the pattern for the customer in-store if desired. Patterns can also be emailed to the customer and saved in their Ravelry library. At the end of each month, shop owners receive a combined invoice for all the patterns sold during that month, and pay for them through Ravelry via PayPal or a credit card.

 

You can find more information in Ravelry’s wiki.

 

To join and set up this program took me about 5 min. Now my 64 patterns are set up for in-store sales and are permitted to sell by 214 retailers. As with everything on Ravelry, here are always the best service and such great new features!

Isn’t they are simple ADORABLE?! Many Thanks to Angela Owens and sweet Miss Layla for such beautiful and lovely photos!!! But now I’m in trouble to pick just one, or two… well, or three pictures for the logo ;o) Any suggestions are much appreciated!!

.. Elves love white. And red. And green. And all the colors in between! Jazz up the holidays with this delightful crochet jacket in traditional Christmas colors, or make it in your little elf’s favorite shades for year-round wear. The long hood and wide bell sleeves are just right for chilly days, especially when trimmed with scallop edgings, organza ruffles and matching zipper closure! Bobble stitches, pom-pom ties and vibrant patchwork details add the perfect finishing touch, and will keep her snug and cheery all season long.

This pattern will be released as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your continued interest and patience with me. I’ll keep you updated!
