My goal here is to find job leads that offer work-from-home opportunities to crochet, design crochet, writing about crochet or edit patterns for pay. One way that this can grow is if you choose to advertise here ($15 for a feature post and a 30-day listing on the job board). Spread the word!
Here are the featured posts for today.

Teach a Workshop at 17th International Surface Design Association Conference
“The Surface Design Association is an international community engaged in the creative exploration of fiber & fabric. Our mission is to promote awareness & appreciation of the textile arts.” Applications are being accepted for workshop ideas for this conference that happens in Texas in June so if you have an idea for teaching a crochet workshop then this could be a good fit. You have to pay $15 to apply but if accepted will be paid between $225 and $1125 plus conference fee waiver, lodging and travel allowances. Proposals due March 1, 2012. More info here.

Job Leads for Paid Crochet Jobs
- Crochet Hats From Patterns. A crochet hat maker has too much work and needs someone who can make hats from a pattern. Will pay $10 per hat.
- Blogger for Yarn Store and Website. Get paid to blog about yarn, knitting and crochet. They want someone who can make in-person meetings in LA but I’m not sure how firm that is. Full disclosure: I’m applying for this one myself! This same store is also seeking a yarn store sales associate and photographer in Los Angeles.
- Crochet Teacher Needed in WA. They need an in-person crochet teacher “proficient in crochet, finding gauge, yardage requirements, and garment construction and finishing” and prefer someone who also has knowledge in other fiber arts.
