Hi everybody I was just wondering how you go about getting your beading patterns published by for example Design Originals or a craft publisher like that one? Or how you would go about selling your kits/patterns to companies that are into this sort of thing?
I have tried to research out this information on the internet but haven't had that much success in finding any answers so wondered if someone here could suggest how to go about this? Who do you contact in these companies, what do you need to submit to them and things like that?
Thanks for any help, appreciate it, and have a wonderful weekend!!

I am a Designer with Bead-Patterns and you just have to go the site
(see url in my signature) and click on "Designer Information" to see
about joining us.
Rita Sova is the owner. She is just great to be associated with.
She will bend over backwards to help you. The site gets a lot of
traffic . Patterns for beginners sell the most, but all types get
looked at and considering what I do, mine sell just fine. I am very
happy to be there. I don't know much about computers so she has had
to fix a lot of my bloopers and does so with no complaint.
After I write a pattern.........I make up the beadwork from my own
instructions to test the pattern. I do only what the instructions
say to do ........nothing more---nothing less.
Good luck with this really fun adventure.
