Model Stitching

Loading thread data ...
My personal opinion: don't waste your time. It's not worth it. I did not have a good experience when I did some a few years ago. I'd rather spend my time stitching things that I *like* for ME. Spending your time stitching ugly, awful patterns for pennies on the stitch is......not fun. Tedious almost to the point of being unbearable. It sucked all joy out of stitching. Sounds like it would be fun -- get paid to stitch! -- but it isn't.

Ewww!! Positively revolting! As if the color wasn't bad enough, to have to do so with crappy yarn is a travesty! The main reason I crochet or knit at all is purely for the tactile pleasure it gives me.

Some designers will have a page on their website detailing how to go about it. You usually have to submit a swatch of stitching so they can see the quality of your work. Most designers have several people stitching for them. Be prepared to follow the pattern very closely, checking for errors, and recording the amount of time and materials used. Materials are normally supplied.
Also check your LNS. Sometimes they need models stitched. I've stitched models for a shop and for a designer.
Don't expect to get rich I do it for stash and for the fun of stitching something I might not otherwise do.
