I had the pleasure of working with Kerry on my knitwear pattern book, Free Spirit Knits. She was the steadying force guiding me, as a new designer, through a lot of uncharted waters, but I always felt like she had my back and certainly my best interests in mind throughout the entire process. Always available for my questions and queries and moments of doubt, she helped walk me through things from start to finish, and I absolutely love the finished product! I’d relish the opportunity to work with her again and highly recommend her skills, professionalism and wonderful attitude to any aspiring author.

Kerry of Maker Books is my secret weapon as I delve into self-publishing quilt patterns. The support, guidance, emotional cheerleading, and top-notch editing she has provided have not only guaranteed my patterns are ready for customers, she gives me the confidence that I sometimes lack because this is a vulnerable experience. I can’t recommend Kerry enough to novice and experienced pattern writers alike. You don’t have to accomplish your goals alone. I’m so glad I have Kerry!

Working with Kerry was awesome! She helped me focus my book concept and develop content that spoke to my market while keeping my creative vision intact. I couldn’t have been happier with my book. Plus she was just plain fun to work with!

Kerry is one of the great ones in a sea of good ones. She helped me in the development (and re-development!) of my first book proposal, gently guiding my ideas into a fully formed thought. I learned the “why” behind decisions instead of simply being told “no”, and through the process I grew as a designer. My book, Urban Knit Collection: 18 City-Inspired Knitting Patterns for the Modern Wardrobe, was most certainly a labor of love, and as I continue to develop projects I use Kerry whenever I can. Her knowledge and talents help to make the good designer great.
