  1. I have a question. Is this book about how to sell DIY related products (patterns etc) to DIY consumers who will then create the manifestation of the product, buying their own yarns etc OR, is it about how to produce a line of RTW knit products? Iow, no consumer DIY involved. If it is the latter, I might be interested in promoting it to my readers (people who start or run clothing lines). Several of my companies have added sweater lines but it’s nothing I know anything about other than what RTW sweater designers have taught me. It’d be great to have a resource to send people to.

  2. More the former than the latter, Kathleen, but FYI — this book also has quite a bit of information on using social media, contracts, getting good value for your money with ads and other practical advice that would be useful to people who are starting or running clothing lines, too.

  5. Hi Sylvie!

    LYS owners can order copies through Unicorn (the big craft book distributor most LYSs use). It may soon be in some other craft stores as well, we’re negotiating those deals now. It’s available on Amazon now, and will be in Apple’s iBookstore soon. Thanks!
