A marketplace for knitters and crocheters
Committed to diverse and accessible patterns
What is Fiber Club?
Fiber Club is a reimagined fiber platform. After the realization of Ravelry's monopoly status in the fiber industry, Rommel and Liza decided to create an alternative space. We are committed to providing an inclusive, diverse, and accessible online marketplace with social network capabilities. Our dream is to create a space to find inspiration and connect with other makers.
Our MVP (minimal viable product) is to provide a mobile marketplace to "buy" free knitting and crochet patterns. After launch, we will collect feedback to enhance the user experience and expand into new features such as, paid patterns and a smooth designer upload process.
