Today I got a letter from the Professional Knitwear Designers Guild letting me know I've been accepted as an Associate Member. How nice! I applied a few weeks ago--you have to send in a pattern you have written along with a large swatch, photo of the finished item, and a resume. You then have 2 years to work on becoming eligible for Professional membership, which basically entails having at least 3 designs published in at least 2 different commercial publications. This is totally what I want to be doing, and since they offer support, contacts, and mentorship along the way I thought I would apply.
