I just made a group on Ravelry called Designs by de Kroon.
I'll be using this group for three things:
1) To find pattern testers for my new patterns. People in the group can volunteer to test my new designs. It will be on a first come first serve basis (I usually like between 5 - 10 testers). Not only do you get early access and the pattern for free, if you successfully complete my pattern tests you are allowed to pick another pattern from my store as a thank you gift!
2) To help people with my designs. If people have any questions about my pattern instructions and need a little more guidance this would be the place to ask. Not only with I be able to get back to you quickly, but all the information would be in the same place. That way if someone else has the same question they can find the answer there.
3) To take pattern requests. I love making things! You can tell me what patterns you would like to see me make. If I have the time (and my yarn stash is in agreement), I will do my best to create the pattern for you.
