Sharing …. A New To Me Website

Today I stumbled across a new website, well new to me that is, that I wanted to share called Makerist.

Makerist is a source for crochet, embroidery, knitting, sewing and quilting patterns.  While they do not have as many patterns as you might find on other sources such as Etsy or Ravelry (crochet/knitting), I was rather impressed by what I found.

Makerist was founded in 2013 in Berlin, Germany by Axel Heinz and Amber Riedl and is the market leader in Europe for digital patterns and e-learning classes. Axel has a background in digital marketplaces and internationalisation of digital companies, and has worked at Dawanda, 9flats and eBay. Amber came from founding a previous startup for online wedding planning and has a background in PR, Communication and Brand Marketing. Amber grew up in Canada which is one reason she has a particular interest in bringing Makerist to the North American market.  

Here’s a few of my favorite crochet and knitting designers that can be found on Makerist ….

I have been buying primarily from Etsy, but love learning about new websites.   Do you have a favorite go to site for purchasing patterns for your creative endeavors?

Until next time, be creative!
