You are all about quick and simple. You love the knitting designs that I create, and you are more than happy to support my knitting journey, but you are only looking for the basics: just an update from the Snickerdoodle Knits world once a month and any time there is an important announcement.

What's Included:

~ Access to Patreon posts, including test knit releases (with priority in test knits) and patterns launches (with exclusive pattern discounts!), and at least one post per month outlining what I've been knitting, designing, and creating in the knitting world.
  • Patron-only posts and messages

Dropped Stitch Level

reward item
$5
per month
You are looking for something more than just the basics, but you don’t have the time for anything too involved. You are loving the content that I share on social media and newsletters, but you’re interested in seeing more. You are super excited about a monthly pattern discount, and you can’t wait to hop on an exclusive video chat!

What's Included:

~ Everything from the $3 tier, PLUS:

~ 50% off one knitting pattern of your choice per month

~ 1 group video call per month (exclusive to Patreon members) ~ just a casual group knit chat to talk about what I've been up to for the month, any exciting news I have to share, and knitting in general

Slipped Cross Stitch Level

reward item
$10
per month
You are interested in some detail, but you don’t want all the knitty-gritty (pun intended). You adore the creative work that I am putting into the world, and you are all about ALL the crafts and hobbies. You are inspired by the creations of other makers, and you love to see how the whole project comes together – from start to finish. You absolutely cannot wait to dig into all of the photos that I’ve shared!


What's Included:

~ Everything from the $5 tier, PLUS:

~ Photos/videos of my non-knitting endeavors (gardening, sewing, baking, photography, etc)

~ Behind-the-scenes design progress photos (and polls, when I'm being indecisive!) ~ Any progress photos that I share on social media are much less detailed and are typically shared well after the design is complete -- you'll see it in real time!
  • See behind-the-scenes design progress as I work
  • Insight in other making endeavors (gardening, sewing, baking, painting, etc)
  • 50% off one knitting pattern per month

About

As a modern knitwear designer and teacher, I free knitters from overwhelm, confusion, and frustration by providing them with clear, step-by-step instructions that lead them to joy and confidence in their knitting.

Welcome!  I am Jessica, the knitter and designer of Snickerdoodle Knits.  I love to create beautiful, timeless designs that you can knit with clarity, creativity, and confidence.  In an effort to make my knitwear design journey more sustainable and my work accessible to all, I have created this Patreon account.  I am very excited to use this platform to connect with you in a more personal and inspiring format, and I truly believe that there is so much for all of us to gain here!

What Will Be Available on Patreon?

As a maker, you are easily enamored to try all the things, but life gets busy and you easily forget about these ambitions.  You fall into the trap of the endless cycle of what you feel like you have to do -- working, cleaning, cooking, caring for your family, and everything else that comes up in between -- and you fall away from your passions and your creative self-care.  Like you, there are so many things that I love to create beyond my knitting -- in my garden, in my kitchen, at my sewing machine, or with my paintbrush.  I love it all, and I can't wait to share all of my making adventures with you, to inspire you to pursue the creative outlets that you love: your hobbies, your making, and your passions.  (Patrons within the $10 and $25 per month tiers will receive this content.)

Are you following me on Instagram and signed up for my emails, but somehow you're still missing my announcements?  I'll share all pattern and test knitting releases with my Patreon members, so you will never miss a launch again!  In addition to launch announcements, I will also share a monthly overview of what I've been knitting, designing, and creating for the knitting community.  You will also have first priority in test knits, and I'll share exclusive discounts on my patterns with my patrons! (You will receive access to these discounts and announcements in all tiers.)

Do you love to see the knitting design process?  Are you interested in knowing what is going through my head as I choose what I'm going to design, its shape and construction, what yarn I'll use, and what stitches I'll use?  There's a lot that goes into each and every knitting design -- and I am so happy to share these insights with you!  (The behind-the-scenes insights are available to patrons within the $10 and $25 tiers.)

Are you looking for an inclusive and creative knitting community that you can connect with from the comfort of your home?  Not only are you able to connect with knitters of all levels within the Snickerdoodle Knits Patreon community via the posts that are shared (available to all tiers), but I also host a monthly video chat exclusive to patrons -- just to chat about everything knitting! (To participate in the online video chat, you must be signed up for the $5, $10, or $25 tier.)

Do you love absolutely EVERYTHING that I design, and are you ready to knit every single pattern as soon as I've finished my sample?  You're in luck!  I am offering you the opportunity to receive my patterns as soon as they are ready to publish!  For free!  My design releases are always scheduled in advance, and if my patterns are part of a collection, it is common that I don't release the pattern for multiple months after tech editing and test knitting are completed.  (As a member of the $25 tier, you will receive my patterns for free as soon as they have completed test knitting and tech editing.) 

Plus more goodies:
  • For all patrons in the $5 tier or higher, you will receive 50% off one of my patterns of your choice every month!
  • For all patrons in the $10 tier or higher, you will have access to the post archives on my Patreon account -- from before you joined!
  • For all patrons in the $25 tier, you will receive exclusive access to influence my designs!  When I can't decide whether to use fringe or tassels, you get to decide for me!

What Will Be Made Possible By Your Support On Patreon?


Of course your support encourages my creative work both morally and monetarily -- and for that I am thankful for from the bottom of my heart -- but this work goes beyond that.  Your support on Patreon will allow me to continue to serve the community.  One of the most important values for Snickerdoodle Knits is to support diversity, inclusivity, and accessibility.  I am striving to cultivate an inviting and inspiring creative community within my Patreon and within the knitting community as a whole.  As part of these values, I:

  • offer my Ravelry patterns for free to knitters who are living in poverty and are unable to afford paid-for knitting patterns.
  • provide alternative yarn suggestions, including more affordable yarn recommendations, for each of my patterns.
  • donate to charities advocating for social justice and mental health.  
  • am planning a project around Kwanzaa, a holiday that celebrates African-American culture.
  • plan to work on more collaborations with minority groups, especially with Black yarn dyers.
  • would like to make my patterns accessible to screen readers.

Your monetary support goes a long way in allowing me to provide these services for those in need and to help those that are underrepresented.  Your monetary support also allows me to pay for tech editing services to ensure that my patterns are as clear and easy-to-follow as possible.  In the future, I would also love to provide monetary compensation to my test knitters.

Interested in My Knitting Pattern Designs?

All of my patterns are available on RavelryLoveCrafts, and are coming soon on Payhip!

Goals
$18.11 of $60 per month
Achieving this goal of a $60 per month in revenue would be HUGE in achieving my long-term goal of making Snickerdoodle Knits a financially sustainable business.  At $60/month, I would be able to cover all of my current base operational fees plus a couple of upgrades that I would like to make to save myself sometime in the business backend.  To celebrate this achievement, we will definitely have a party!  At a minimum, there will be a Zoom Knit Night with patrons only!

(Note this is only the very core of my business expenses.  This does not include sales taxes, sales fees that are paid to the pattern hosting websites and PayPal, tech editing fees, any investments (such as educational material to advance the business), tools (such as a yarn swift, ball winder, and a knitting needle set -- which one day I would love to have all three!), or advanced software (such as for video editing or photography).)
