Here are the crochet job links I’ve found around the web today. Bear with me as this series develops … I’ll be looking for more sources for leads. I am also taking job ads so if you need to hire a pattern tester, tech editor, contract crocheter, etc. then consider advertising with me. Info here.
Featured Crochet Job
Personal Crochet / Knitting Instructor Wanted
Jennifer is a 32-year-old female based in Michigan who has advertised on Care.com that she’s looking for personal instruction / assistance with knitting and crochet. She says that she needs some help with more difficult patterns and would like to get that help from a more experienced person. For example, she currently has a sweater pattern that she needs a bit of help with in terms of interpreting the pattern (not sure if this one is knit or crochet). This would be an occasional ongoing job, hourly rate negotiable. She doesn’t specify if she’s looking for someone local or if she would be open to some type of online video chat instruction but it could be worth checking out if you think this job is right for you.
