Liz Salazar – Mommy Loves Yarn
After reading stacks of pattern books and taking many online classes, I still struggled with pattern writing. Since working with Emily I’ve been able to write patterns with precision and consistency. Every pattern I send to Emily comes back to me with concise, detailed notes explaining what corrections need to be made and why. Emily is meticulous about getting the stitch count and measurements right. I have finally found the pattern writing confidence I need! Now, when I post a new pattern on my blog or in my Etsy shop, I know I am providing a well- written, error- free pattern that my readers will love.

I look at tech editing like insurance! I would have been a nervous wreck if Emily had not helped me with the only two patterns I have published. I felt so much more confident that what I was putting out into the world was correct and I was communicating correctly!
Rachel Counts – Desert Blossom Crafts
Emily's tech-editing is exactly what I needed to feel confident in my pattern. Math is not my strong point, so it is extremely helpful to have my calculations confirmed and corrected when necessary. Emily also pays close attention to detail and will give you suggestions to improve your pattern writing. Overall, I highly recommend her services!

Emily from Fiat Fiber Arts is an excellent tech editor and a wonderful person. She is completely dedicated and thorough. She offers consistency and clarity as well as encouragement. She is wonderful to work with and gives me the confidence to keep creating patterns.

Contacting Emily was the best decision I could have made for my pattern-writing career. Not having worked with a tech editor before, I reached out to Emily a few months ago after hearing such great things about her and thought I'd give it a shot. I sent her a few of my existing patterns and I couldn't believe how much valuable feedback she provided me - I only wish I had contacted her sooner! Emily has taught me so much about crochet standards and I have never felt so confident in my work. I used to be anxious during pattern releases, worried there may be errors that I had missed. Now, pattern release days are stress-free and exciting because I know my work is the best it could be. I highly recommend Emily to any crochet designers looking to improve their pattern-writing skills!
Melissa Fisher – Woods and Wool
Emily is an amazing tech editor and wonderful person. I had never used a tech editor before, but decided to try it out. I sent Emily a pretty simple pattern to edit and she came back with some amazing suggestions to improve my pattern writing. She goes above and beyond and has shared her wealth of knowledge to help me improve my patterns. With Emily’s help, I feel more confident than ever to submit to larger publications and brands and continue growing my design business. If you’re not using a tech editor – it is a MUST for every designer and I can’t recommend Emily enough.
Jennifer Percival – Crochet to Play
Working with Emily as a tech editor has been a fantastic experience. She is friendly, positive, and very qualified to edit crochet patterns. Emily is detail-oriented and catches even the smallest places a pattern could use re-working or re-wording. Once Emily has edited my patterns, I feel completely confident to send them out into the world. I highly recommend her tech editing services!

Emily was so patient with me and a unique design. She was great at helping turn my idea and pattern into a format that would be understood by others. She has a great eye for checking the consistency of language within a pattern, clarifying schematics, and stitch counts. Because of Emily, I was able to offer a great pattern to my testers, and then to the crochet community. Now I wait In anticipation to see completed projects on Ravelry!
Amanda Mannas – Mandobug Crafts
Thanks to Emily of Fiat Fiber Arts I now have a designer style sheet that is both clear and logical. After working with Emily I now have the confidence to publish a difficult pattern I’d been sitting on. The pattern was full of several special stitches and she helped me identify ways that I could make the stitches and overall pattern more clear to readers while keeping it in line with industry standards. I’m very pleased with the outcome and highly recommend her services!
