Vermont Fiber Designs is now pleased to offer several new services in addition to its line of high-quality handknitting patterns. These services will be of interest to knitters, designers, knitting magazines and book publishers.
For yarn companies, designers, magazines and book publishers, we offer clear, concise pattern instructions based on drawings, photographs, and completed garments. We are happy to rewrite existing patterns to match your editorial style. We can take your handwritten charts and drawings and turn them into completed, professional graphics, ready for publication.
Because of our considerable pattern writing experience, we are able to offer fast, professional technical editing and proofing of your pattern, whether it is a single pattern in its first draft, or an entire manuscript in layouts, ready for publication. We can ensure that the manuscript is consistent in style and content, and that pattern instructions are clear and concise.
Are you a knitter or designer who wants to see your designs in print but don't know how to go about it? Do you lack the computer skills required to ensure that your design is presented beautifully? Our new Pattern Publishing service was created with you in mind! You supply us with a completed sweater and written pattern (we can even write the pattern if you'd prefer), and we do the rest!
We will coordinate a photo shoot with our professional photographer, edit your pattern for style and content, perform all of the detailed graphic design work (including charts and schematics), and be there at the printer when your patterns go to press. Finally, your patterns will be included as a part of our successful pattern line, with distribution to yarn shops throughout the United States and Canada. We have production and pricing options that are sure to work for you. Please contact us directly for additional information.
