My personal opinion: don't waste your time. It's not worth it. I did not
have a good experience when I did some a few years ago. I'd rather spend my
time stitching things that I *like* for ME. Spending your time stitching
ugly, awful patterns for pennies on the stitch is......not fun. Tedious
almost to the point of being unbearable. It sucked all joy out of
stitching. Sounds like it would be fun -- get paid to stitch! -- but it
isn't.

My DD did model knitting - after doing a lovely aran pattern in salmon
pink, in cheap yarn, she stopped lol


Ewww!! Positively revolting! As if the color wasn't bad enough, to have to
do so with crappy yarn is a travesty! The main reason I crochet or knit at
all is purely for the tactile pleasure it gives me.

Some designers will have a page on their website detailing how to go
about it. You usually have to submit a swatch of stitching so they can
see the quality of your work. Most designers have several people
stitching for them. Be prepared to follow the pattern very closely,
checking for errors, and recording the amount of time and materials
used. Materials are normally supplied.

Also check your LNS. Sometimes they need models stitched. I've stitched
models for a shop and for a designer.

Don't expect to get rich G I do it for stash and for the fun of
stitching something I might not otherwise do.
