Stitch Cooperative (Stitch Co-op for short) is a new business model for pattern distribution. It aims to serve both independent designers and craft shops by bringing them together in a way that hasn’t been done before.

The basics: order a broad range of patterns from talented independent designers for your shop in one fell swoop. No more juggling invoices from 40 different designers. No more hunting for the best of the best — you’ve found it here! You can sign up for our designer- or shop-specific mailing lists to be notified as soon as we release additional information.

Stitch Cooperative is managed by Shannon Okey, author of eleven knitting- and fiber arts-related books, knit designer, and a shop owner herself. In creating Stitch Cooperative, Shannon has reached out to designers and shop owners alike to determine what each constituency is looking for in a distribution and wholesale relationship.

Most importantly, independent designers will reach a wider audience and local yarn shops will be able to provide their customers with a broader selection of patterns with ease.
