I think CDA is wonderful! Very informative and thorough and I love the flexibility of watching the classes when it's convenient. Before CDA, I lacked confidence, always wondering if I was doing the right things to make my crochet business successful. Now I feel really inspired and have direction I want to go in my designing!

My favorite part of the program is the live question and answer via zoom, as it is a way to connect with others that have the same interests in learning how to design. Dana is very knowledgeable and readily answers questions with great ideas and solutions as they come up in the discussion. She also tells us the things NOT to do based on her trials and errors and the mistakes she made when setting up her business with no prior guidance or program.

  • How does the course work?
    All lessons are pre-recorded so you can go at your own pace. The content will be given in a dripped manner, allowing you to move on to the next lesson as you complete each section. This prevents you from getting overwhelmed or ahead of yourself.
  • Is this a physical product?
    This is not a physical product, but rather an online digital program with options to download and print the items you wish to have a copy of at your own discretion. Any group meetings will be recorded live via Zoom and uploaded to the course portal for replay within 48 hours for those who were unable to attend.
  • Can I get a physical copy?
    At this time our course is only available in digital PDF and video format. You can print the entire bundle and have it bound at your local office supply store, or you can print it to keep in a 3-ring binder if you’d like. You could also realistically download the content in your digital files on your computer to access later.
  • Who is CDA for?
    I will be the first to admit that CDA is not right for everyone. The course curriculum was developed based on advanced techniques, and therefore attendees should be advanced crocheters in order to grasp the content. If you are not able to veer from crochet patterns or create crochet pieces without the use of a pattern, then CDA may be too advanced for you.

    Attendees need to not only be artistically inclined, but also be able to have a firm grasp of the mathematical concepts required to create a crocheted item from scratch.

    Students will also need to be self-motivated and disciplined, as you will be required to actually do the work in order to benefit from the program.
  • Are there any prerequisites?
    Before enrolling in Crochet Design Academy you should already know how to read and follow a crochet pattern efficiently.

    You should be an advanced crocheter who is able to create crochet pieces from scratch without the use of a crochet pattern, or at least be able to veer from a crochet pattern to alter a crochet piece as desired.

    You must also be artistically inclined, as that is not something that can be taught.
  • How soon after purchase will I receive my product?
    You will have instant access to the course portal and content once your purchase has gone through. All communication will be through the email provided at checkout, so be sure to whitelist our email address in your inbox and be on the lookout for information as it comes.
  • What will I be learning in CDA?
    CDA focuses on teaching students how to design digital crochet patterns, and then how to build multiple streams of digital evergreen content off of those patterns.

    The curriculum is designed to walk you step-by-step through the exact steps you need to take in order to build a strong design foundation, develop and fine-tune your own design strategy and style, learn how to glean design inspiration and turn it into a crochet piece, how to translate that design into a well-written and standardized pattern, how to call for and communicate with testers, how to take excellent listing photos, how to publish your pattern to Etsy and Ravelry, how to develop a marketing strategy to get your pattern in front of more buyers, how to create stellar YouTube content without fancy equipment, how to use a blog and YouTube channel to drive pattern sales and create more streams of income, how to communicate with your email subscribers, how to create a great SEO strategy, how to use Pinterest to drive pattern sales, how to properly submit your designs to crochet magazines, and much, MUCH more!

    You will leave CDA confident, inspired, and fully prepared to not only design and publish crochet patterns, but equipped with all the tools you need to successfully build multiple streams of income with your crochet patterns.
  • What is your return policy?
    Your satisfaction in the course content is important to us. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you can receive a full refund within 14 days from the date of purchase.
  • What happens when my 12 month VIP membership is up?
    If you decide to stay on as a VIP member and continue to get the VIP access to all new content after your yearly membership is up, you will be prompted to join a subscription to my VIP members for a small monthly fee of $10.

    You will be allowed to stay in the VIP Facebook group and have direct access to me weekly, as well as have access to any new content I create for the course as long as you are a VIP member. You will be able to cancel at any time.
  • How much time should I dedicate to the course content? I am already so busy.
    Because it’s self-paced, you really can determine that yourself. However, I do recommend that you spend at least 3 hours every week on the course content. If you wish to see the results I’m promising, you will not be able to put it off.

    The beauty of pre-recorded lessons is that you could realistically listen to the lessons while you clean your house or while you are running errands, instead of trying to meet up for live lessons, which is one of the main reasons the lessons are pre-recorded.

Before CDA, I lacked confidence that I could design something that would even be worth writing out. Dana teaches you how to know what your customers want and to gear your designs based on that. The curriculum is very thorough and easy to understand. I highly recommend it!

If you have been wanting to create and sell your own patterns, this is the course for you! Dana explains each step in a very clear, logical and concise manner. Lessons are uploaded so that you can watch them at a convenient time, with weekly meetings to discuss the lesson and go over the worksheets and questions. These meetings were also accessible through the course, which was a very handy reference if you were unable to make the group session. For the amount of information and knowledge, I felt it was a really good program and am glad I invested in myself by purchasing it.
