With the demand for new and exciting crochet from the fashion world continuing to grow, Sunshine Coast crochet expert Jenny King is sharing her knowledge of crocheting techniques by offering opportunities as contract crocheters to make samples of JK Designs patterns.
With 30 years of experience and certified for teaching crochet, Jenny’s passion and dedication to revitalising the art of crochet is infectious and she is currently seeking competent and consistent crocheters to help her expand her pattern range.
“This will give those enthusiastic about crocheting a chance to be involved in the growing crocheting trend,” Jenny said.
Jenny, whose shop is on the David Low Way at Marcoola (opposite the SurfAir), will be sharing with the successful applications new and innovative crochet techniques that have made JK Designs popular here on the Coast, at craft shows and fairs throughout Australia and online and in international publications.
“Crochet has been increasing in popularity for years, with more and more crochet fashions appearing on cat walks which has led to a revival in the numbers of people wanting to learn the craft themselves,” Jenny said.
Contractors will need to have the ability to read a pattern, complete work quickly, have the Internet and/or phone access and want to work from the comfort of their own home.
Jenny said some of the techniques and patterns were yet to be released to the public, so successful applicants would be required to sign a confidentiality agreement.
“New contractors will be supplied with all the materials and also receive acknowledgement as a stitcher for the pattern sample,” Jenny said.
“Contractors will be paid standard industry rates on a per garment or project basis.”
Jenny self publishes crochet patterns and books and is in demand as a pattern designer and teacher both in Australia and internationally.
