Thank you so much for joining me here on Patreon! I'm honored to have so many talented knitters as part of the MediaPeruana Designs community.

My name's Kristen, I'm the designer behind MediaPeruana Designs, a growing small business focused on creating high quality knitting patterns and providing knitting instruction through web-based tutorials, e-courses and in-person workshops. 
In the years since I began knitting, I've developed a unique skill--the ability to envision and bring to life modern knitwear designs and translate those designs into patterns so other knitters can recreate them. It is, perhaps, an odd job to have fallen into, but one I am passionate about continuing. Your support means I can do just that--so thank you!

Perhaps you're thinking, "But wait! I already buy patterns from MediaPeruana Designs!" Pattern sales are the heart of my business, and I truly appreciate each and every pattern purchase--Patreon simply gives patrons the opportunity to preorder those patterns, while simultaneously helping me to ensure a reliable income stream. Every reward tier includes those patterns you want, plus other exclusive perks and bonuses!
In addition to producing patterns, MPD also works to provide other knitting-related content and activities for free. These include
  • the Hilo & Stitch podcast
  • tutorials
  • knit-a-longs
  • contests and giveaways
By supporting MediaPeruana Designs through Patreon, you help to ensure that I can continue to create not only knitting patterns but a complete knitting experience!

Goals

Professional pattern designers have a small team of people--which may include tech editors, sample knitters, photographers--that must be paid up front for their work, before a single copy of a pattern has been sold. There are also a number of business expenses that are incurred regularly, regardless of pattern sales--website hosting, advertising, software licenses, etc.
A steady stream of income independent of pattern sales ensures that I can continue to develop patterns throughout the year, without having to put my work on hold during the "slow" season.
