Learn Yarn and Business ​Skills


​Yarn Academy

A creative community for yarn lovers looking to connect, organise and generate cash.

The yarn community is amazing, so supportive and willing to listen and help.

It is too much to do everything by yourself.  Everyone needs a supportive community around them.  Once I found a group to bounce ideas off my world changed.  

I found myself hitting monthly publishing deadlines for multiple magazines.

10x my earnings from pattern publishing in less than a year.

Yarn Academy community members receive the support and community they need to grow their own yarn based businesses and earn cash.

Community + Tutors = always here for you.

Considering that I am a new designer, who mostly looks for things that are gratis (free or close to it), I can't really put a price on this valuable service.

​Just lots of praise! Babs, you were a lifesaver. I'll never be able to thank you enough!
