DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

You want to start designing crochet patterns, but you don't know where to start...

Let’s face it-- there’s nothing more frustrating than crocheting your fingers to the bone to try and make more money in your crochet business, only to feel like you’re spinning your wheels and never actually seeing the results--or the income--that you want.

And there’s nothing more disheartening than pouring your heart and soul into making your crochet business thrive--whether it be starting an Etsy shop, taking as many custom orders as possible, or doing as many vendor markets as you can--only to fail at actually making a dependable and sustainable income.

You’ve heard all the pros tell you it’s possible to pay your bills by selling your finished products if you do all the right things, but…

Something just isn't working.

Your Etsy sales plummeted. Your vendor markets got canceled. No one seems to want to buy winter hats in the summer and the market seems so saturated. You spent hours creating beautiful crochet items that you thought would bring you a decent income, but you haven’t been making hardly any sales.

Other makers make it look so easy, but for you, it’s been anything but. You thought the hard part was going to be branding yourself and finding all the right markets, but as it turns out, that was only the beginning. And now you feel like you must be missing something.

You're not alone.

Most crochet business owners are missing something.

The truth is that the income from the sale of digital crochet patterns is a game-changer, one that will allow you to finally maximize your profitability, make more money doing less work, and yes, even allow you to make money while you sleep.

The problem? Figuring out your design strategy AND design style AND how to write up a pattern correctly and accurately AND knowing how to successfully market and sell your patterns all at the EXACT SAME TIME is not that easy. There are so many different potential points of failure that sometimes it feels like it's more trouble than it's worth.

But what if there was a way to make sure you got all the pieces right?

HEY THERE, I'M DANA!

And I'd really love to help you become the crochet designer you've always wanted to become...

Since starting my design career in 2019, I’ve designed well over 100 crochet patterns and have had 4 of my designs featured in national crochet magazines like Annie’s, We Crochet and Crochet World. The profitable income from the sale of my digital crochet patterns has allowed me to quit my stressful job in the medical field and live my dream of working from home.

But it didn’t start out that way!

When I first started designing, I struggled SO hard with knowing what to design and how to get people to actually buy my patterns. There were so many times I felt like giving up, and I can’t even tell you how often I secretly wished I could ask my favorite crochet designer exactly what to do to achieve their same success. Sadly, that never happened, but I swore to myself that if I ever did figure out the secret to successfully designing and selling my patterns, I’d be that person for someone else!

And that’s exactly what Crochet Design Academy is all about.

No, it’s not a magic wand, but it IS probably the next best thing: it is a clearly laid out, step-by-step guide that will show you exactly what you need to do to get your designing career off the ground and headed in the right direction.

It’s the secret blueprint for the success you’ve been waiting for in your crochet business.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS....

Is Crochet Design Academy Right For Me?

Are there any prerequisites?

Before enrolling in Crochet Design Academy you should already know how to read and follow a crochet pattern efficiently.

You should be an advanced crocheter who is able to create crochet pieces from scratch without the use of a crochet pattern, or at least be able to veer from a crochet pattern to alter a crochet piece as desired.

You must also be artistically inclined, as that is not something that can be taught.


Who is CDA for?

I will be the first to admit that CDA is not right for everyone. The course curriculum was developed based on advanced techniques, and therefore attendees should be advanced crocheters in order to grasp the content. If you are not able to veer from crochet patterns or create crochet pieces without the use of a pattern, then CDA may be too advanced for you.

Attendees need to not only be artistically inclined, but also be able to have a firm grasp of the mathematical concepts required to create a crocheted item from scratch.

Students will also need to be self-motivated and disciplined, as you will be required to actually do the work in order to benefit from the program.


What will I be learning in CDA?

CDA focuses on taking out the guesswork involved in becoming a crochet designer. The curriculum is designed to walk you step-by-step through the exact steps you need to take in order to build a strong design foundation, develop and fine-tune your own design strategy and style, learn how to glean design inspiration and turn it into a crochet piece, learn how to translate that design into a well-written and standardized pattern, learn how to call for and communicate with testers, learn how to take excellent listing photos, how to publish your pattern to Etsy and Ravelry, how to develop a marketing strategy to get your pattern in front of more buyers, how to create stellar YouTube content without fancy equipment, how to properly submit your designs to crochet magazines, and much, MUCH more!

You will leave CDA confident, inspired, and fully prepared to not only design and publish a crochet pattern, but equipped with all the tools you need to successfully market and sell your crochet pattern.


Is this a physical product?

This is not a physical product, but rather an online digital program with options to download and print the items you wish to have a copy of at your own discretion. Since lessons will be delivered live via Zoom, you will need to have either a smartphone or a computer with the most recent version of Zoom downloaded to watch live. All meetings and lessons will be recorded live and uploaded to the course portal for replay within 24 hours.


Can I get a physical copy?

At this time our course is only available in digital PDF and video format. You can print the entire bundle and have it bound at your local office supply store, or you can print it to keep in a 3-ring binder if you’d like. You could also realistically download the content in your digital files on your computer to access later.

How soon after purchase will I receive my product?

Classes will begin starting the week of Oct. 1, 2022. You will have access to the bonus branding module to begin working on and an orientation video to watch the week before classes begin. All communication will be through the email provided at checkout, so be sure to whitelist our email address in your inbox and be on the lookout for information as it comes.


How does the course work?

All lessons will be given live via Zoom each week, as well as live Office Hours each week. You will receive an email update every Friday with the next week’s class schedule and upcoming events. The printable materials and video library content will be published in a phased manner, and given on an as-needed basis to give you time to absorb the content and apply it as you learn.


What's the investment?

When Crochet Design Academy officially launches in 2023, tuition will cost $497. However, during this very special, one-time-only offer, you can enroll for just $297 (40% off!)

After the 5-day enrollment window closes, this offer will no longer be available and the doors to the program will be closed until next year. All others will be put on a waitlist until enrollment opens again next year.


What is your return policy?

Your satisfaction in the course content is important to us. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you can receive a full refund within 30 days from the date of purchase.
