Designer Consulting and Photography Services

As an independent designer there are many aspects of creating professional patterns where the prices are prohibitively high.  We understand the inclination to DIY your photography and marketing as a means to save money but truly, how much is that costing you in SALES? We’ve seen dramatic increase in sales with proper photography and marketing guidance.

Stitchcraft Marketing has teamed up with  Caro Sheridan to make professional photography and marketing available to you at an affordable price to help you sell more patterns!

Are you a good fit for our program? If you’re answering yes to the following questions then you can’t afford not to work with us!

  • Are you posing for photos in your backyard while your friend/husband/partner tries to get a decent photo of you in your new pattern?
  • Do you have a portfolio of strong patterns that just aren’t selling?
  • Do you feel like your business has hit a plateau?
  • Are you lacking direction or feeling unsure of how to market your patterns?
  • Want to grow your business this year?


In addition to our services by working with Stitchcraft Marketing you also gain access to collaboration opportunities with our many clients. Want to participate in a fashion show at Vogue Knitting Live? Want to create an exclusive collection for a yarn company? Want to get exclusive products samples for reviewing before they are available to the public? When you join the Stitchcraft family you’ll not only get our expertise and connections in the industry, but you’ll see how we bring this all together to make magic for your brand!

Testimonial from indie designer Jen Lucas:

Dear Mari,

Thank you so much! I love them! You and Caro make a very, very good team!

I look forward to working with you again in the future on photo shoots for my patterns. Because the dress form isn’t going to cut it anymore after these beauties hit Ravelry.

Thanks again, Jen
