Welcome to Light Work Collective. We are a one-stop shop for knitwear/crochet designers and yarn companies looking for specialist freelancers and an expert production team.

Light Work Collective was founded by Amelia Hodsdon and Rosee Woodland and draws upon their decades of experience in the textiles and publishing worlds.

LWC also works with a select group of tech editors, graphic designers, illustrators, writers, photographers and stylists to help you realise your vision for your brand.

Prefer to concentrate on designing? Our team can deliver everything that’s needed to publish a pattern, ebook or print book, from technical editing, grading and spec pattern writing, to art direction and photography, layout, illustration, and proofing.

Tight on time? We can manage your project from start to finish – a great option for designers working on their first book and feeling overwhelmed or for growing yarn companies seeking broader expertise.

Having trouble getting noticed? We offer consultations on branding, marketing, social media and Ravelry.

At Light Work Collective, we believe that inclusion, diversity and equality are essential. We value difference and oppose discrimination.
