PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING:
For our designers, and pattern and crafting goods sellers:
This marketplace section is for the benefit of FiberKind designers, whether your patterns are provided free or offered for sale, and crafting goods sellers. If you are a seller and wish to post your items for sale to this section, please send me a personal message, maybe a link to your website, lovecrafts or etsy store, etc and I’ll mark you as a seller able to post here. If you are posting free patterns and wish to upload your free pdf pattern, or link to your free pattern, send me a message indicating you wish to do this. An alternate website is not required for free pdf patterns (PDFs can be uploaded directly to the Free Patterns thread).
Shameless plug– lovecrafts.com has approved our affiliate application, so that would be my preference as it will help support fiberkind.com if buyers click the affiliate ad before they shop. I am also able to make a direct affiliate link to your lovecrafts pattern. Please send me a PM if you can support FiberKind in this way.
I want this section to be made up of OUR sellers, not simply patterns found around the web that you find intriguing. My hope is our members will come here first when looking for a pattern and will prioritize spending with FiberKind designers.
(If you find other interesting free patterns across the internet, be sure to share in the Free Patterns Group!)
I am guessing most designers would like their own thread to showcase their patterns, however for the ease of our members finding what they are looking for, I would suggest only having one thread per area. So, for example:
If you have a shawl pattern for sale, please post a comment in that already started thread. My thought is if they are all together in one thread, FiberKind members are more likely to find this area useful. They can browse the patterns they are looking for quickly and select the one they like the best. Consider using a tag to help folks find your patterns!
I can add categories as desired – I built this on what I am familiar with, but this is for YOU – so your suggestions and requests are welcome. If a category gets too “busy” and warrants breaking it out further (Say – shawls, fingering weight) I can do that, and move all relevant comments to the new thread accordingly. If we get enough patterns in a category to warrant separating them by designer, I can do that at a later time, and move all relevant comments to the new thread as appropriate.

@TexasPurl has a wonderful setup I thought might be useful as a sample:
