 You get my immense thanks, and recognition as a Patreon sponsor on my Blog Page, as well, as on the end credits of my Podcast and my (upcoming) Youtube Videos.   Plus, you'll be first-in-line for any questions submitted to my Podcast, and have the opportunity to have your question played on the podcast as an audio or video file!


You'll also get access to exclusive weekly posts here on Patreon about my design process and workflow.  What inspires me, how my designer's brain works (or doesn't, sometimes), and any other musings I've been up to that week.  You'll also get exclusive looks at whenever I update my sketchbook!

Featured Pattern Subscriber
$5 or more per month

At this tier, my monthly featured pattern will be available for free to you!  The featured patterns do change every month; and they're chosen from my self-published patterns. 


This reward also includes the Inspiration Gatherer reward level as well. 

Pattern Muse
$10 or more per month

At this level, patrons will have input into my design process.  I'll post polls asking what I should work on next, and post previews of the process as I work, as well as pattern drafts and other fun stuff!

This will operate on a 3-month cycle, and it will operate 6 months in advance, with quarterly releases.   The 2019  Q2, Q3, Q4, and 2020 Q1 releases have been chosen and are now in progress, (yes, there was a bit of a backlog, but I'm working through it!) and the poll for the 2020 Q2 pattern is now open!


Patrons at this level will also receive these patterns for free when it is released.  Patrons are also guaranteed a spot in the test-knitting process for these patterns.  (Please note, you must also have a Yarnpond account to participate in the test-knitting process, but registration is free!)


This level also includes the rewards from the Featured Pattern Subscriber, and Inspiration Gatherer, as well.

Once a month, you will have access to an hour-long, virtual knit knit night!

Zoom does, in fact, support real-time captioning.  If you will need captions to participate, please, reach out and contact me so I can make some arrangements.
