A free online event for crochet makers and designers who want to get more eyes on their business, more sales on the books, and more raving, repeat customers without spending hours a day creating content and simply hoping someone sees it.

June 3 - 7, 2021

Growing a business while playing with yarn is so much fun...but it's not all cozy comfort and spectacular stitches.

Hey, I see you. You’re doing a lot of things right.

You KNOW you’re creating quality products and gorgeous designs, but sometimes you feel invisible, like you’re missing some secret piece of the puzzle, when it comes to connecting with your customers and getting your creations into the hands of people who will love them.

And it feels like you're spending more time with your fingers on a keyboard
than on a hook!

What you really want is to...

Experience the joy of knowing your products are making a positive impact every time they get into the hands or onto the hook of your ideal customer.

Know the peace that comes when you easily give up comparison and perfectionism to operate your business from a place of authentic confidence.

Feel the pride of growing a business while operating in integrity, creating beauty, and connecting with your people…even the people in your own home.

Revel in the security and freedom that come from knowing your marketing will actually turn into sales.

Share the excitement of your growing base of loyal, repeat customers who can’t wait for your next post, next live chat, and next product launch.

Everything would change if you could just implement some bite-sized, simple strategies that you can trust to work…in your niche, for your people, and for your life.

Listen….all of this is possible for you.

Marketing your business can be easy, authentic, and natural. Seriously.

That's what the Crochet Business Summit is all about...marketing strategies that work - for your business and your life.

This 5-day event brings together 25+ of your favorite makers, designers, and coaches to help you identify holes in your marketing strategy, develop a plan that works for your business, and grow the confidence to show up for your customers and make those sales.

Maybe you're...

Overcoming perfectionism and fear, but continually reverting back to comparing yourself to Instagram illusions.

Longing to live with purpose and make an impact, but are unsure how to do that with your products and designs.

Wishing you had predictable sales and repeat customers but you don’t know how to make that happen for your business and with your audience.

Ok, friend, take a deep breath.
I hear you. I get it.
Whatever it is for you, change is coming. Let's get you unstuck.

Meet Your Host

Hi! I’m Pam, founder of the Crochetpreneur® Business Academy. I’m a retired psychotherapist turned crochet 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.

 

I created this summit to help you identify and implement marketing strategies that not only feel natural but work well so you can grow your profits more efficiently and turn yarn into money…with confidence, purpose, and impact.

All the Things

When

The Crochet Business Summit will take place  June 3 – 7, 2021

Where

Wherever you are is where we’ll be. Show up in your pjs? Sure! All speaker presentations will be online, hosted at crochetbusinesssummit.com.

Presentations

Each presentation will be a bite-sized 20-30 minutes long and will be available until 10:00 PM Eastern the day after its premier. Sessions will be clearly identified as appropriate for makers, designers, or both, so you’ll get exactly the content you need for your business model. 

Community

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 marketing goals.

Prizes

Ummm…yes, prizes! Summit attendees will have a chance to win goodies based on engagement, a special Bingo game, and an awesome Grand Prize Marketing Madness Giveaway. As a matter of fact, we’re doling out entries over in the Facebook group right now. Register for your link to join the fun!

Scholarship

I am dedicated to helping you grow a profitable crochet business and making the process as easy as possible. To help, you’ll hear about my Crochetpreneur® Business Academy here and there 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 bonus courses!

Stay tuned for details and your chance to apply!

Upgrade

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 and transcriptions PLUS over $3K in speaker bonuses, live co-working sessions, group coaching, and more.

AMAZING, RIGHT?! You won’t want to miss this business boosting opportunity.

BONUS Implementation Day (June 8th)

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 Tuesday, June 8! These sessions include: 

  • Planning for Productivity Workshop – Create a workable plan for long-term implementation of the strategies you learned in the summit.
  • Networking – Break into small groups to chat about crochet biz and find collaboration opportunities, affiliate partners, and new business besties!
  • Hot Seats – You’ll have the opportunity to submit questions you have about growing your crochet businesses and come on live to chat through them!
  • Co-Working – Get work done alongside crochet designers and product makers.
  • Keynote Masterclass – Learn about my 3-Part Framework for a Profitable Crochet Business as you get a jumpstart on moving your business forward. You’ll also hear more about my signature Crochetpreneur® Business Academy after the training.

These sessions have been designed to take what you’ll learn throughout the week and get you taking action toward your most profitable year yet!

A summit just for crochet business CEOs, like you!

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 and business coaches who also happen to be crochet business owners, to celebrate your special unicorniness and to help you overcome anxiety and grow the confidence you need to make the best decisions for you and your business.

We’re not here to overwhelm you with too many action items and overwhelming 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 and your business goals.

And, if you walk away from our community and networking opportunities with a new biz bestie or two, all the better!

Come, Join the community, hang out, and let's get this party started at the Crochet Business Summit.

Your Questions, Answered

It is! There are a lot of trainings out there for general handmade business owners, but this one has been created specifically for crochet business owners based on their unique needs, community, and audience.

The main portion of the summit runs from June 3 – 7, 2021. We’ll kick off on June 2nd 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 Eastern 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!

Absolutely not! I, Pam, will be the only person 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 or worksheet during their presentation. That way, you only hear from the people you really love,

Learn more in our Privacy Policy.

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 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 2022, 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 through the live chatbox that will be available during the scheduled presentations.

We love to support businesses who support crochet entrepreneurs and fiber artists. If you’d like to partner with us for this event, please email [email protected] with your ideas. We’d love to collaborate!

 

No problem! Shoot an email over to [email protected] and we’ll get back to you within 3 business days.
