About the interview
In this episode, I talk with Carrie about all the ways that Red Heart works with professional crafters. Use the Contact Us page to reach out to Red Heart. Some of the possible collaborations we discussed are:
While Red Heart generally works with established designers and organizes its own call for submissions, they are always open to receiving design proposals or inquiries from new designers and bloggers.
Besides the Contact Us page, designers and bloggers with existing tutorials and patterns can reach out to the social media manager via direct messages to let Red Heart know about your existing work.
You may also find this past episode, How to Source Yarn (Inexpensively) for Your Business, helpful.
