A free 5-day summit for crochet makers, designers, and service providers where you’ll learn strategies for generating predictable profits, nurturing your love for crochet, & kicking overwhelm to the curb.
I get it. You love turning your passion into profits, but sometimes the stress of market fluctuations, pressure to do all-the-things, expectations, comparison, and unpredictable income can squelch the passion, steal your crojo, and leave you feeling…
You have so much to do – knowing what steps to take next, analyzing the ups and downs of the market, and getting sucked into a never-ending comparison loop…it’s all too much.
The isolation of working from home – alone behind a computer screen – feels like it just makes things worse. Add in job pressures, kids wanting attention, and a partner who doesn’t get it…and you’re just done.
It’s just not as fun as it used to be to get out of bed and hop on the computer. That smile everyone sees is fading and you can’t remember the last time you crocheted just for fun.
Hey, Crochetpreneurs, it’s time for you to love your business again.
Join 23 of your favorite makers, designers, and coaches to learn proven strategies to grow your business with predictable income while reigniting your enjoyment of the craft, mitigating overwhelm, and nurturing your mind, body, spirit, and relationships (Yes! This is a recipe for magic no matter how long you’ve been in business.)
Develop strategies for growing your income and increasing your reach while still enjoying your business.
Expand your offerings and include new streams of income without overwhelming the system.
Implement self-care practices that would protect you from repetitive motion injuries, auto-immune flare-ups, and exhaustion.
Stop putting your life on hold because you’re too busy working, you’re tired, or you just need to finish one more row.
Learn to turn off your CEO-brain every once in a while and have fun with crochet again…maybe even make something for yourself!
Scale your business so your family and friends will not only take it seriously but be in awe of what you’ve created.
Hi! I’m Pam, a crochet business strategist and founder of the Crochetpreneur® Business Academy.
I’m a retired psychotherapist turned crochet maker, designer, and business coach with a passion for helping crocheters experience the personal and financial freedom that comes from building a profitable business that fits their own unique vision and personality.
As a creative spirit who built a bustling business doing it exactly my way – with lots of coffee, lots of adventure, and lots of literal and figurative roller coasters – I want to help you do the same in a way that feels perfectly right for you while maintaining your health, your relationships, and your love for crochet.
Wherever you are is where we’ll be. Show up in your pjs? Sure! All speaker presentations will be online, hosted at crochetbusinesssummit.com.
Each presentation will be bite-sized, 20-30 minutes long, and will be available until 10:00 pm MDT the day after its premier.
Of course we’re going to have a special summit community! Even before the event starts, you’ll have opportunities to connect with other crochet bosses, get started on working through some crochet business myths that are keeping you stuck, and get a jumpstart on meeting our speakers and taking action toward your business goals.
Ummm…yes, prizes! Summit attendees will have a chance to win goodies daily based on their engagement, a special Bingo game, and an awesome Grand Prize Giveaway valued at $2,000! As a matter of fact, we’re doling out entries over in the Facebook group right now. Register and gain access to join the fun!
I am dedicated to helping you grow a profitable crochet business and making the process as easy as possible even beyond the summit. To help, you’ll hear about my Crochetpreneur Business Academy™ periodically throughout the event.
On the final day, one lucky (and engaged) attendee will be selected to win a full scholarship to have instant lifetime access to the CBA™ Success Method and
five six bonus courses!
Stay tuned for details and your chance to apply!
After registering, you’ll be able to access attendee-only premium upgrades. Depending on the option you choose, you can get ongoing presentation access, presentation worksheets, transcripts, and slices PLUS over $3K in speaker bonuses, live co-working + networking sessions, group coaching, and more.
AMAZING, RIGHT?! You won’t want to miss this business-boosting opportunity.
Watching actionable presentations is great, but to see real change happen, you’ll have to take action. And doing so alongside others with similar goals is powerful. That’s why we’ll have live, interactive events on Friday, May 20th! These sessions include:
These sessions have been designed to take what you’ll learn throughout the week and get you taking action toward your most profitable (and joy-filled) year yet!
Hey, I know there are all sorts of summits and workshops out there, but this one is different…and here’s why:
First, this summit was created specifically for you. Every single presentation is specially designed to help YOU, the crochet business CEO, by focusing on strategies and concepts with proven results for real life crochetpreneurs (who were once where you are, right now).
Second, we care about your heart and want to help you feel free to be more you within the context of your business. That’s why we’ve invited licensed counselors, healthcare professionals, and business coaches to help you incorporate strategies for preserving your love for the craft, nurturing your relationships, health, and well-being.
We’re not here to overwhelm you with too many action items and hours-long presentations. No, we want you to walk away feeling encouraged and empowered to select the bite-sized, actionable strategies that feel right for you, your business goals, and the life you want to live.
And, if you end up making a new biz bestie or two along the way, all the better!
Now, without further ado, here are the incredibly talented and gracious speakers who will be sharing with you at the 2022 Crochet Business Summit!

Scale Your Handmade Business to Success
It’s a day to put all you’ve learned into motion before it gets put on a shelf. We’ll have events throughout the day including:
I’m sure there are faces you know and love on that list and, even, some new faces that you’ll love learning from!
It’s designed for crochet business owners but all fiber artists are welcome! There are a lot of trainings out there for general handmade business owners, but this one has been created specifically for fiber-based business owners and center around their unique needs, community, and audience.
The main portion of the summit runs from May 16 – 20, 2022. We’ll kick off on May 15th with a live opening call, and the Facebook community will be ready to welcome you right when you get your ticket!
Each video will be available through 10:00 pm MDT the night after it becomes available. However, you can grab the Crochet Biz Power Pack to get ongoing access to all of the videos and worksheets, along with other amazing bonuses from the speakers!
Don’t worry! My team and I will be the only ones you’ll hear from, directly, after you’ve registered. That’s so you can get all the updates for the summit and links to each day’s videos. After the summit is over, you’ll continue to receive weekly crochet business tips from me, but you can unsubscribe at any time.
As for the speakers, the only way your email address will be shared with them is if you opt-in for their freebie during their presentation or via their bonus in the Crochet Biz Power Pack. That way, you only hear from the people you really love and want to hear from. Again, you can unsubscribe at any time.
All presentations will have closed captioning. Transcriptions are also available for each presentation with our upgrade options that you’ll see after registering for the event.
We will do everything we can to ensure that all Facebook live videos and Zoom chats are, likewise, captioned.
Please reach out if there’s anything we can do to ensure you’re able to enjoy this event.
All of our speakers for this summit have been hand-picked and invited to speak at the event. Our slots are currently full. However, we’re open to additional affiliates or potential speakers for next year’s summit. If you’re interested in affiliate details or being considered for the Crochet Business Summit in 2023, email [email protected]!
Due to the tricky nature of technology and my desire to keep things rolling as smoothly as possible, all presentations have been taped beforehand and will be aired at their scheduled time. However, you’ll still be able to engage with the speakers, after their presentation airs, inside the summit Facebook group where they’ll hold LIVE Q + A sessions.
We love to support businesses who support crochet entrepreneurs and fiber artists. If you’d like to partner with us for this event with sponsorship or giveaway items, please email [email protected] with your ideas. We’d love to collaborate!
