We have spent the past few weeks developing Crochetville's very own free crochet pattern directory. We have the basic structure in place, but it's not very complete right now, as we're sure you'll notice.
We need your help to make this directory fabulous! We'll need:
1. Site Visitors
We hope you will enjoy the features we've built into this site. We hope that as we populate it with patterns, our free crochet pattern directory will become your go-to site when you need help finding a free crochet pattern.
Please go check out our free crochet pattern directory. Take a look at the new features and let us know what you think about it.
2. Pattern Link Submitters
We would love for you to add links to your favorite free patterns or any free pattern you run across when browsing the internet.
Just follow our easy tutorial.
- Please submit only free crochet patterns.
- Please submit only patterns that have at least one photo.
- If a pattern depicts a trademark (such as a character or logo) submit it only if it is licensed. (There are very few licensed patterns available as free patterns.)
3. Volunteer Editors
We'll need some volunteer editors who will be able to do things like:
- Proofread the listings
- Add thumbnail photos
- Assign the pattern to the proper categories
- Approve for posting
We hope to have 5-10 editors so nobody feels overwhelmed. We have a team of 4 already in place, but we'd love to have some more.
We're anticipating there will be a lot of patterns submitted during the first few weeks with the volume slowly declining after that.
Please Contact Us if you'd like to be a volunteer editor.
We're thinking of having some special giveaways when we reach certain milestone goals for the number of patterns in the database. Maybe for our first 1,000 and then for every increment of 5,000? What do you think? Does that sound like fun?
We hope you're as excited about this new directory as we are! Now go check it out!
We're up to 168 pattern links in the database now, but we need more, more, more! Please go over and submit information for your favorite free crochet patterns.
CPC had over 19,000 free pattern links. Ravelry has over 31,000. Without help, it would take Amy and Donna years to get all these free patterns added to our database. If each active Crochetville member added only 5-10 of their favorite pattern links, we'd have a full database in no time at all. And if you add even more links than that (5-10 a day, maybe??), the database will be more useful even faster.
Please help us out and add some information, please?
