At Birk and Berg we offer a special yarn support program to people who wants to create knitting patterns but don’t have room in their budgets for hand-dyed yarns, want to create for a good cause or simply feel compelled to design with our yarns.
If you’re interested in receiving free yarn for your pattern design project please send us an email and tell us about the project (or type of project) you have in mind and we can have a chat about it.
As a matter of our personal values of supporting marginalised people we are especially interested in offering yarn support to black, brown and indigenous people of color and queer makers. So please don’t hesitate to write us if you are a knitter/crocheter/fiber artist who fits this description in any way and is interested in yarn support or just learning more about how it works.
Yarn support comes with zero strings attached:
- We pay shipping.
- We don’t request or expect credit of any kind. You are not working for us when you receive yarn support. The yarn support is entirely meant to aid your business, organisation or platform.
- We don’t require a project to be finished and/or published in any way as a result of receiving yarn support. If the design project somehow doesn’t work out it’s totally fine.
We will gladly lend our knowledge about creating and publishing knitting patterns to anyone receiving yarn support. We are also able to offer graphic design aid should that be necessary.
– Nina Berg Christensen and Christina Birk Sørensen.
