Calling all Designers!

We're sending out our Call for Submissions this week for our Autumn/Winter '21 collection! Sign up for our Designer Email List here and you'll receive our moodboards in your inbox soon!

For this Autumn/Winter ‘21 collection, we’re looking for cables, textures, and colorwork inspired by ceramics. A sister craft to the fiber arts, ceramics + pottery takes raw materials to create a stunning and functional work of usable art. We’re excited to see your interpretation of this artistic medium to knitted fabric using thought-provoking techniques and motifs.

Most of all, we’re interested in what inspires you looking in Autumn ’21. We’re deep lovers of traditional knitwear refreshed for modern life, which runs from an updated-classic cabled pullover to fresh applications of stranded, intarsia, and mosaic colorwork. We love beautiful finishing work and thoughtful details like tubular cast ons and bind offs and thoughtful tailoring, and think of them as signature elements of Hudson + West designs. We believe—deeply—in clear, high quality pattern writing that helps knitters reach new horizons in their work, and place a premium on designs that provide new spins on classics of the knitter’s wardrobe, elevating classic ideas with improved techniques or approaches that make them both more knittable and more wearable. 

We hope our moodboard sparks your imagination, and gives you a sense of what animates us as we look into Autumn ‘21. We’re seeking a small number of size inclusive pullovers and cardigans for all people, scarves, shawls, mitts, cowls, and, of course, hats! We love at good beanie. 

At Hudson + West Co., we think great yarn and great design are for everyone, and we’re committed to inclusion in all aspects of our work. We welcome designers of all races, ages, nationalities, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and sizes, and we expect our partners and collaborators to do the same (and yes, this includes pattern grading). We’re trying to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. 

With love,
Meghan + Sloane

The Details: 

Submission Deadline: May 11, 2021

Sample and Pattern Deadline: June 29, 2021

Compensation: Hudson + West Co. pays a flat fee based on the design. Additionally, designers receive 100% of all Ravelry sales.

Rights and Important Legal Info: Hudson + West Co. is committed to compensating our designers and sharing in the upside of great design. We pay a flat rate for the initial design and sample, and provide tech editing, layout, and photography. We keep the print rights to the pattern, and we give designers 100% of the Ravelry sales of the pattern going forward, which feels like an “everybody wins” setup to us. We’ll keep samples for a period of time after publication so that we can use them for trunk shows, but will then return them to you. We’re small and nimble and happy to work out details on a case by case basis, but Sloane practiced law for a long time, so we write paper contracts. For everything.

Submission Requirements: All requirements for submission are included in our moodboards. All submissions are required to include your legal name, preferred pronouns (if desired), a detailed sketch, swatch photos, schematics, intended size range, and an estimated yardage for sample. All incomplete submissions will not be considered.

Send to: If you’re interested in receiving the H+W Autumn/Winter '21 moodboards and future calls, please sign up for our Designer Mailing List here.

Hudson + West Co. is a woman-founded yarn company dedicated to bringing innovative American-made yarns to the handknitting market, along with modern and wearable designs that highlight those yarns’ best qualities.

    BITCOIN LOST OR STOLEN LOST RECOVERY MASTERS TELLS YOU HOW TO GET IT BACK.

    I was originally introduced to bitcoin by an Instagram acquaintance of mine. The notion appealed to me, so I decided to invest through the website. I made money from investments in the beginning, and I continued to do so until the website vanished. I couldn’t get any money out before the incident, but luckily my friend suggested Lost Recovery Masters. Right on schedule, they helped me receive my entire money back. It was a pleasure to work with them and they did an excellent job. It may seem unbelievable, yet it is exactly what happened. They put a lot of effort into their work, and we were reimbursed. Consult Lost Recovery Masters.
