Jessica Brist

Accessibility can feel like a huge scope that encompasses so many things... because it does and it is! But in this podcast episode with Renee Van Hoy, Renee breaks down some simple easy-to-implement methods to start making your designs and business more accessible. Not only that, but she provides insight on who this helps, how it helps them, and what a huge difference it makes in their lives and making.

And it impacts every part of your business, from your social media and email marketing to your website design, and of course, your knit or crochet patterns.

It can all feel overwhelming if you're not familiar with it, but Renee encourages knit and crochet pattern designers to just start with one or two pieces and build on that. It really is doable!

Plus, Renee has tremendous resources available for designers. For just $20, take the Accessible Patterns Course; not only will you learn all about making your patterns accessible, but you'll support the Accessible Patterns Index, and receive a free pattern review from Renee. And any time you publish an accessible pattern, you can let Renee know, and she will add it to the Accessible Patterns Index, an incredible resource for folks who benefit from accessible patterns.
