Well, here's an update to my Patreon Page!
Two updates, really, but they're related enough I figure they can be a single blog post.
Update Number One:
I've adjusted my rewards around, and I now have a new $10 reward tier! If you follow me on Patreon or other social media, you'll be seeing the details of this soon, if you haven't already.
The simple version is: my $10 Pattern Muses get a say in some of patterns I'll be releasing. It's a 6 month production cycle, and I just posted the first poll (for a Jan 2018 release). The next poll (for an April 2018 release) will go up in October 2017.
In addition, I might solicit more feedback, depending on the type and style of the pattern I end up working on. And finally, the pattern will be free to the Pattern Muses, until the next pattern in the cycle is released.
Update Number Two:
I've posted a new goal -- I'd love to be able to have a Coworking Membership.
As I think I've mentioned on the blog before, I work from home, which is great,
until it's not. It's hard to focus on work when I know the bathtub
needs to be cleaned, or if my roommate is home or others are over. I
don't have a private work space (I work in our living room/kitchen), so
it can be a challenge to get things done if there's other stuff going on. Plus, despite my best efforts, the cats do get into my work. It's not a problem for me, but it is a problem if I'm trying to keep cat hair off a sample knit.
Plus, I got the chance to try out a co-working space
on International Co-working day (yes, that exists), and I loved it. I
got a lot done, far more then I thought I would (though I was overly optimistic about how much knitting I'd have to bring with me, but isn't that always the way? Better to have too much knitting then not enough!)
the co-working membership gets me access to health insurance (very
important!), networking and advertising opportunities, teaching space,
and more. It'll be amazing, if I can make it work!
So, I figured, it deserved a goal on Patreon.
As always, thoughts, feedback, and comments are all welcome -- I'm still new to Patreon, so letting me know what you'd like to see (or not like to see) would be amazingly helpful!
Until next time!
